Increasingly, critical questions are being asked by historians who are also Christians. What is the relation of faith to history? What difference could Christian perspectives make in historical study? In this volume thirteen respected scholars-among them, C. Stephen Evans, George M. Marsden, and Mark A. Noll-provide provisional answers to these and similar questions. By engaging foundational issues of perspective and theory, exploring discrete themes such as feminism, puritanism, and missiology, and discussing the application of religious insights in teaching history, this volume kshows the positive implications of a Christian perspective for the study of history and historiography. Contributors include: Margaret Lamberts Bendroth, C. Stephen Evans, G. Marcille Frederick, D. G. Hart, Bill J. Leonard, Goerge M. Marsden, Shirly A. Mullen, Mark A. Noll, Richard Pointer, Jerr L. Summers, Robert P. Swierenga, Edwin J. Van Kley, and Ronald A. Wells.
