Editorial Reviews


Confessing History suggests that there is a Christian version of Ambrose’s Law, which the editors would probably call Marsden’s Law. Their objects of concern are historians such as George Marsden and Mark Noll, who have won the respect of their profession. The worry is that by seeking success with that audience, Christian historians have failed to be sufficiently Christian.” 
(Books and Culture)

“Green and his fellow editors are to be commended for building upon the work of the older generation of Reformed and evangelical scholars, who since the 1960s have been asking hard questions about the Christian historian’s vocation in the present age.” 
(Anglican and Episcopal History)
