Editorial Reviews



"Thesis: "We should identify the precise intellectual and political contexts of the texts we are studying, in order to ascertain what their authors meant and what they were doing." Sounds painfully obvious, doesn't it? Ah, but you haven't spent enough time in academic settings. And the controversy gets ramped up when we add that this will require historians to take religion seriously on its own terms. Seeing Things Their Way is a superb collection of essays on these themes." --Christianity Today


"At bottom, this is a wonderfully simple book. It gathers essays from scholars of high academic standing to tell us what we learned in kindergarten: we need to listen in order to understand. . . . The book has a simple and well-presented interdisciplinary message, a nice hook connecting it to Skinner, one of the great intellectuals of our time, and, finally, the book is filled with lots of important information and interpretations from insightful and careful historians willing to try to see through the religious perspectives of their subjects." --Christian Scholar's Review
