    In the context of the socio-political and religious implication of the understanding of Conversion the Chapter analyses historical development of the understanding of the term beginning with Apostolic times. The chapter goes on to argue how it is to be understood in its relation to the fullness of Christ and the Kingdom that he proclaimed. In the context of religious pluralism the invitation to conversion must emphasize this transformation into the Kingdom rather than a change of religion.
