Abstract:

The Meaning of History is a concise look at the meaning of the history of the world from the viewpoints of major historians and philosophers. By examining the individual approaches of these great thinkers, this book takes on the monumental task of analyzing the history of humanity and its prospects for the future. The book studies not just the facts of history, but the personality and purpose of the vastly influential figures who shaped it. Is history constantly repeating itself, or is civilization evolving toward a predestined utopia? Is history in God's hands, or does it depend on the whims of man? This informative book traces the arc of civilization from the New Testament all the way through to today. It will forever change the way you look at history and your individual place in it.
