Bypassing the History of Eastern Europe: A Failure of Twentieth Century Christian Scholarship

James R. Payton, Jr.


James R. Payton, Jr., argues that Eastern European history has not been but needs to become a field for vigorous involvement by Christian scholars. That fascinating history opens up vistas for Christian scholarship in various fields, and knowing the history of Eastern Europe is essential for effective involvement in this region now open to the West. Mr. Payton is Professor of History at Redeemer College. He also serves as Executive Secretary of CAREE (Christians Associated for Relationships with Eastern Europe), an ecumenical organization that for forty years has worked in pursuit of peace, justice, and reconciliation in Eastern Europe.
