In Search for a New Life | Conversion Motives of Christians and Muslims
These are the conversion stories of John and Ahmed. John, a former Catholic, converted to Islam. Ahmed, born a Muslim, became a Christian. Dr Andreas Maurer identified five foundational conversion motives in his doctoral thesis. These are: religious, mystical, affectionate, socio-political, and material motives. After introducing the stories of both converts, Dr Maurer gives a quick analysis of the Muslim and the Christian convert respectively.
