The History and Political Studies Department at Southern Adventist University welcomes author and speaker Karen Swallow Prior, PhD, to present on Wednesday, April 3, at 7 p.m. in Mabel Wood Hall’s Ackerman Auditorium as part of the Benjamin McArthur Endowed Lecture Series. Providing history that sheds light on the national religious and cultural landscape of the present, Prior’s Christ-centered presentation is titled “Conversion: What Can the Evangelical Movement Teach Us about Religious Transformation?” Evangelicals have been defined throughout their 300-year-old movement by an emphasis on the conversion experience that emerged from a number of historical and theological developments continuing to this day.
