This collection approaches Christian history from several perspectives that give modern scholars and pastors a clear perspective on ancient truths. Questions about our ability to validate Christian accounts of history found within scripture are presented, and balanced by an exploration of the various methods of Scripture interpretation. Gerald Bray continues this careful examination with his confident assertion of God’s guiding the development of theology and interpretation throughout the history of the church. Readers will also benefit from later biographical examinations of prominent Christian teachers like Calvin and George Whitefield. Theologians and students alike will appreciate two careful studies of theology, one based on historical documents and the other based upon the influence of reformed faith on several African-American pastors. The lessons contained in this collection refresh and inspire sermons and personal devotion with their frank discussion of the role of faith and theology throughout Christian history.
