In this article, I focus on continuity and discontinuity between religious traditions, as perceived by converts. I interviewed six converts: three Muslims who became Christian, three Christians who converted to Islam. They reflect on their experiences with their 'old' and 'new' religion. What were the changes they underwent? What remained the same? In their stories, they often conclude that God remained a constant presence in their life, even if they did not experience this at an earlier stage.
