Publisher Description

This volume arises out of special concerns of historians who are also Christians. What case can be made for connecting historical work and religious convictions? What is the relation of faith to history? What difference could Christian perspectives make in historical study? Thirteen respected scholars — including some who have changed the face of history writing in the twentieth century — here take up a diversity of subjects in giving a provisional answer to these important questions. In exploring foundational issues of perspective and theory, engaging discrete themes such as feminism, puritanism, and missiology, and discussing the application of religious insights in teaching history, this excellent collection of essays forthrightly addresses the “epistemological crisis” brought on by the postmodern critique of truth and demonstrates the positive implications of a Christian perspective for the study of history and historiography.
