Heirich, Max
American Journal of Sociology, 83, 3, 653-80, Nov 77
Compares data about converts to Catholic Pentecostalism with a control sample in order to question traditional religious and social scientific theories about religious conversion. Shows how data can be organized either to support classical claims or to provide more factual results. Concludes that religious conversion should be studied in relation to larger patterns of social interaction.
