¿Porqué los españoles se convierten al cristianismo evangélico?

El semestre pasado enseñé una asignatura de sociología para el curso masters en la Facultad Protestante de Teología UEBE en Alcobendas. Quise compartir con todos la obra final que entregaron mis estudiantes, con permiso de los estudiantes.

En este proyecto se explora la pregunta: ¿Porqué los españoles se convierten al cristianismo evangélico?

Aquí está:

Originalmente publicada en inglés en el blog de New Wineskins, aquí está la versión en español en La Luz: Pensamiento Anglicano.

Don Little on Discipleship of ex-Muslims and the Church

Beautiful observation here from Don Little‘s 2009 doctoral dissertation at Gordon-Conwell (p. 122):

This idea of bringing together both sides of the identity into a new, firm convert identity is really at the heart not only of discipleship but all pastoral care for Christ’s converts from Islam.

기독교인은 왜 박해받을까요?

Here is my address on conversion from Islam to Christianity at Voice of the Martyrs Korea, a dynamic and wonderful ministry. I gave this address in English and it has translation into Korean.

지금까지 무슬림에서 기독교로 회심한 사람은 전 세계에 몇 명이나 될까요? 그들은 무엇에 끌려 기독교로 나올까요? 우리는 이미 그리스도께 나온 그들을 어떻게 대해야 할까요? 무슬림 회심자 전문 연구원 두에인 알렉산더 밀러(Duane Alexander Miller) 박사가 객관적인 수치로 여러 가지 질문에 명쾌하게 대답합니다. 함께 들어봅시다.

Thanks to the Rev. Dr. Foley for her work translating this.

Graduation Speech for Voice of the Martyrs (Seoul): “Conversion, Culture and Mission”

Some time ago I wasn’t contacted by the leadership of Voice of the Martyrs based here in Seoul, Korea. This morning I presented the graduation address (or commencement speech, as they call it in the USA) to a group of North Korean Christians and guests. Three of them had completed the six-month discipleship program, two of them were being commissioned as missionaries, and two had completed the full three-year program called Underground University.

The bible text is Ephesians 3:1–6. It is presented in English with ongoing translation to Korean. The graphs I reference are found here.

Here is the audio, and as always your questions or comments are welcome.

Stephen Bedard interviews me on Islam & Christianity

Some time ago Stephen J. Bedard, blogger at Hope’s Reason, reviewed my book Two Stories of Everything. Stephen is a pastor, teacher, blogger, author, disability advocate and a promoter of discipleship.

As a follow up of that interview, he interviewed me recently for his podcast. Listen to the whole interview here and check out the other resources at his blog. I really enjoyed talking with Stephen and I think you’ll enjoy the podcast.
