Every age can easily disdain the things of its past, focusing far too much on the current and future horizons.  The church historian writes to expand these horizons, to create meaningful connects between the church and it's rice past.  Stephen Nichols speaks to his fellow history writers, and discusses why they should write, what they should write, and how to write.

 

This is a lecture from the 2011 National Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society on the theme, “No Other Name.” The conference featured plenary speakers: Darrell Bock, Tim Tennant, and Kelly Kapic.
