Accessible and clear, this handy introduction will continue to be useful for both students and experienced scholars in the field. Praise for the First Edition: "This is the most comprehensive and most lucidly written introduction to the methods of historical research and writing in the field of church history that I have seen. The authors are to be commended for engaging issues of faith and critical scholarship in ways that detract neither from personal commitment nor from historical rigor. . . . All in all, a magnificent achievement." - Harry S. Stout "While Bradley and Muller show how hard it is to learn the craft, they help the apprentice considerably." - Christian Century "A reliable roadmap for all who would enter the scholarly labyrinth known as `church history.' . . . All new practitioners of the discipline, not to mention old ones, could benefit from this books" -- Religious Studies Reviewshow more
