Dr. Mutie reviews Writing the History of Early Christianity: From Reception to Retrospection, by Markus Vincent. The thesis of Vincent’s work is that, rather than approaching the writing of the history of Christianity either chronologically or “anachronologically,” a more helpful approach that fills the gaps that always present Church historians with many problems is to write and read the history retrospectively. This is approaching history from the present and reading it back to the past, an approach that the author admits is radicalised.
