The Shape of the Past

A Christian Response to Secular Philosophies of History
  • By John Warwick Montgomery
Product Description
Dr. Montgomery contends that no one can ""sit in a house by the side of the road and watch the world go by."" Everyone is caught up in the flux of human life, and there is no naturalistic resting resting place within human history from which one can gain a universal, absolute perspective on man's life. Christianity is the only answer to this basic human predicament, for it claims, and by the resurrection backs up its claim, that there is a God and that He entered human history and revealed its essential nature. John Warwick Montgomery is Professor Emeritus of Law and Humanities, University of Bedfordshire, England, Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy and Christian Thought, Patrick Henry College (Virginia, U.S.A.), and Director, International Academy of Apologetics, Evangelism and Human Rights (Strasbourg, France). He holds ten earned degrees besides a Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Chicago, the Doctorat d'Universite from Strasbourg, France, and the LL.M. and LL.D. from the University of Cardiff, Wales/UK. A frequent contributor to Christianity Today, Dr. Montgomery has been honored by inclusion in Who's Who in America, Who's Who in France, and The Dictionary of International Biography. He is the author of some thirty books in the areas of theology, philosophy, and church history. He pleads cases before the European Court of Human Rights and has received the Patriarch's Medal of the Romanian Orthodox Church for his efforts in behalf of religious liberty. He is an ordained Lutheran pastor. Websites:,
