Abstract:

Maintains that history makes sense only when understood as the history of salvation. Show how the very possibility of history, as distinct from chronicle, arises from the revealed knowledge of God's creative work. Christ, as God entering history, becomes its centre and both judges and illumines it, with consequences for all past and present philosophies. With Christ as norm, the author examines Marxism, logical positivism, existentialism and other secular interpretations of history, and distinguishes between their valid and false concepts. Then, after searching exposition of the Christian theology of history in which God's presence is continuous, he concludes with a section explaining how the Christian, in a sense, not only "experiences" history, but "makes" it. More than an answer for the anxious and a refutation of those who see Christianity simply as one historical stream among many, this book is a commanding invitation for all mankind to take part in history--to participate individually and collectively in the work of salvation.
