Faith and History is the blog of Robert Tracy McKenzie, professor and chair of the Department of History at Wheaton College.  Before coming to Wheaton in 2010, McKenzie served for twenty-two years on the faculty of the University of Washington, where he received the university’s distinguished teaching award, was a member of the U.W. Teaching Academy, and held the Donald A. Logan Chair of American History.  Along with dozens of scholarly articles and book reviews, he is the author of two books pertaining to the American Civil War (published by Cambridge University Press and Oxford University Press) and a  book just out from Intervarsity Press, The First Thanksgiving: What the Real Story Tells Us about Loving God and Learning from History.

First Thanksgiving

Faith and History will track McKenzie’s experience teaching U. S. History to Christian undergraduates at Wheaton.  It grows out of a burden for the church and a deep desire to be in conversation with Christians about what it means to think Christianly and historically about the American past.
