Admittedly I've taken a bit of a break from reading Jacques Ellul since Christmas. (Can't find any Ellul for the Kindle out there... yet. I'm also learning that Kindle doesn't always handle the non-fiction efficiently.)
However, here's a quote I recorded in my journal on the 22nd. Any thoughts? How does this intersect or conflict with your own definition of conversion?
"To convert! This great word has been diluted. The people of the third century and later have converted to Christianity in morality and religion, but they have kept intact their mode of thinking."
(The Subversion of Christianity, p. 26. Emphasis mine)
