Steven J. Keillor pursues the thesis that divine judgment can be a fruitful category for historical investigation. In fact, he argues that Christianity is an interpretation of history more than a worldview or philosophy. Grounding his thesis on a study of God's judgments in both the Old and New Testaments, the author then takes up two events in US history, the burning of Washington in 1814 and the Civil War, to explore and make his case. He concludes by suggesting the relevance of his thesis to some contemporary concerns, including the attacks of September 11.

What do God's judgments have to do with history?Steven J. Keillor presents the bold thesis that divine judgment can be a fruitful category for historical investigation. In fact, he makes the case that Christianity is rightly grasped as an interpretation of history more than a worldview or philosophy. Grounding his thesis first on a study of God's judgments in the teaching of both the Old and New Testaments, Keillor then revisits two prominent events in U.S. history, the burning of Washington in 1814 and the Civil War, to further explore and test his interpretive principle of divine judgment. He concludes by suggesting the relevance of his thesis to some pressing contemporary concerns.
