Editorial Reviews

"This book is an excellent summary of Christian history from the apostolic period to the current day and is written in an engaging way. It will be profitably used by scholars and students in all Christian traditions and is a helpful text not only for introductory seminary church history or historical theology courses, but also for historiography in university graduate courses."
History and Sociology of Religion

"Expert historians are not always as good at self-reflecting on their craft at practicing that craft. Euan Cameron, however, is an exemption as shown by his careful assessment of what the historians of this and previous generations have both taken for granted and spelled out explicitly in writing the history of Christianity. As one might expect from a distinguished student of the sixteenth century, Interpreting Christian History is particularly good on what the rise of Protestantism meant for understanding the Christian past." Mark Noll, Wheaton College
