From the Back Cover
--George Kalantzis, Wheaton Center for Early Christian Studies, Wheaton College
"With impressive scholarly expertise and lively writing, Laing examines how early Christian memories were gathered, shaped, and marshaled as polemical arguments or world-shaping narratives. All the right topics are covered: apologetics, martyrdom, hagiography, and Eusebian-style history. For those who think the past matters, this book is important reading--for the collective remembrance of the faithful is one of the greatest shapers of the Christian mind today."
--Bryan Litfin, Moody Bible Institute
"Laing helps readers find value in early Christian history without cherry-picking those isolated texts with which modern readers might agree. There are many introductions to early Christian thought, but few reclaim ways of doing theology while remaining faithful to the writers whose texts are the subject of inquiry."
--Steve McKinion, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"A work of significant value to twenty-first-century evangelicals who long for a meaningful collective Christian identity but suffer from the effects of modernity's radical individualism. This is a serious work of painstakingly researched and well-sourced scholarship. It is recommended for anyone interested in patristics, historiography, or the church."
--Miles S. Mullin II, Hannibal-LaGrange University
"Laing serves up a delightful feast of historiographical insight, garnished with a dash of contemporary application. Her engaging study is prepared with precision and presented with style. Laing does more than merely inform her readers, who will find their perspectives challenged and changed by her critical reflections."
--Paul A. Hartog, Faith Baptist Theological Seminary
