Teaching History
A Seventh-day Adventist Approach
by Gary Land
$ 9.99

Land examines the integration of historical knowledge into a Christian worldview and its implications for teaching, scholarship, and life.

He writes: "Our knowledge of God and history is limited. But that knowledge will grow as we study the past. The dialogue we carry on with the evidence is a two-way street, for our understanding of the ways of God will be informed by what we find in the historical record just as our Christian perspective will inform our understanding of history."
