Jonathan Strom explores how the desire of German Pietists to determine “true conversion” distorted the understanding of conversion experiences and worked at cross purposes to the spirituality Pietists hoped to instill. Strom is senior associate dean of faculty and academic affairs and professor of church history at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, in Atlanta, Georgia. His recent book, German Pietism and the Problem of Conversion (Pennsylvania State University Press, 2018), received the 2019 Dale W. Brown Book Award.
