(forthcoming Cascade Publishers 2018)
Re-Forming History is an attempt at a new way of looking at the past, as seen through the eyes of faith and the lens of theology. It will seek to introduce students, academics, and readers alike to a re-thinking of the discipline of history from a Christian faith perspective.
It is consciously designed both to address the fundamentals of the labour of the historian – why should we study the past? For whom do we work? Should history serve a broader purpose? – but also to provoke the audience to think differently about the past.
Written in a lively, accessible, and provocative style, this book will not only ask searching questions about the nature of history, but also suggest new and ambitious ways of understanding the past “Christianly.”
