The questions addressed in the book have been asked by many of the great thinkers in human history. They include: is there meaning to history? Is there a pattern to history? Is God in control of history? What is my place in history? This book is a clear and fascinating discussion of the major answers proposed by thinkers throughout history, including Toynbee, Sorokin, Kant, Marx and Augustine. The author evaluates each theory and offers the reader guidance to discover a Christian answer.
