ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
A milestone work in Christian
        theology--available again!
      "As a critic of the contemporary
        theological scene, Van Harvey has few, if any, competitors. This is nowhere
        clearer than in The Historian and the Believer . . . the classic
        discussion of its topic. Rich in insight and penetrating in argument,
        it is one book that belongs in the library of every theologian and seminarian."
        -- Schubert M. Ogden, author of Doing Theology Today
      Is it possible to be both
        a historian and a Christian? Van Harvey's classic The Historian and
        the Believer posed that question when it was first published.
      In this printing, the author
        has provided a new introduction in which he reflects on how he would reframe
        his original argument in order to bring out more fully the basic theological
        intention underlying his view that Christian faith cannot rest on dubious
        historical claims.
      From reviews of the first
        edition:
      "Probably the most interesting
        piece of American theological writing to appear this year." -- John
        Reumann, Union Seminary Quarterly Review
