Find four firsthand accounts of religious conversions on the web (make sure they contain sufficient information about the time leading up to the actual conversion
experience), then compare these stories to Lofland and Stark’s process model of conversion (“Becoming a World-Saver.”) Does their model seem to map on to the stories you found? Note anything that seems important in the stories that are not captured in the model, or things predicted in the model that are not exemplified in these stories.
