Book Give Away

This week I’m giving away a copy of Why Study History? by John Fea. Here’s the catalog description:

The interpretation of the past is at the core of many of today’s divisive political and cultural debates. In this introductory textbook, accomplished historian John Fea shows how studying the past can help us understand the present world in which we live. Deep historical thinking has the potential to transform the lives of individuals and society, because it enables us to understand those with whom we differ on important issues. Studying history can relieve us of our narcissism; cultivate humility, hospitality, and love; and transform our lives more fully into the image of Jesus Christ.

Why Study History? explains why Christians should study history, how faith is brought to bear on our understanding of the past, and how studying the past can help us more effectively love God and others. Professors and students of history will value this unique, accessible introduction to the study of history and the historian’s vocation.

Leave your name in the comments section by NLT Friday, Sep. 28th 6:00 am EST. I’ll draw the winner’s name that Friday. International entries are welcome.
