A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book argues that thick, embodied faith uniquely sustains moral transformation among those whom society deems hopeless. It insists that by applying a narrative lens to religious conversion, we can better understand the dynamics of personal transformation in ways that make sense of psychological and social factors without ignoring so-called spiritual ones. It also helps us comprehend why religion often refuses to remain tamed or contained in the personal or private sphere many Americans wish. N° de réf. du libraire ANB9780739167830

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The Transformative Power of Faith examines how and why some people, particularly those coming out of highly self-destructive, violent, and antisocial backgrounds who appear beyond repair, experience profound personal transformation through conversion to strong faith. Illustrated by stories of converts who came out of serious drug addiction, gangs, and poverty through adherence to a demanding faith, Erin Dufault-Hunter argues for a narrative approach to conversion. This holistic theoretical perspective offers an alternative epistemological stance to reductionistic models sometimes perpetuated among social scientists and religious ethicists alike. In this study, the narrative lens gives vision of the religious “Other” a depth and complexity too often lacking. Such an approach allows a deeper understanding of the dynamics of personal transformation in ways that make sense of psychological and social factors without ignoring so-called “spiritual” ones.

About the Author:

Erin Dufault-Hunter is assistant professor of Christian Ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary.
