Re-forming History


Published, Cascade Books 2019



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."
