Retrieving History

Retrieving History introduces the early Christian ideas of history and
history writing and shows their value for developing Christian communities of
the patristic era. It examines the ways early Christians related and
transmitted their history: apologetics, martyrdom accounts, sacred biography,
and the genre of church history proper. Stefana Dan Laing shows that exploring
the lives and writings of both men and women of the ancient church helps
readers understand how Christian identity is rooted in the faithful work of
preceding generations. Her book also offers a corrective to the individualistic
and ahistorical tendencies within contemporary Christianity. It will appeal to
professors and students in church history and patristics courses as well as
pastors, worship leaders, and educated laypeople.
