Reeves rightly concludes:
Christians cannot find true identity or purpose in a purely naturalistic understanding of history. It is only through a God who saves his people in history through the sacrifice of Christ. The touchstone for history is not my history, but Christ's history. I need to make sense of the world less through the lens of my experience and more through Christ's. History is the terrain we travel, and we should know it well, but Christ is our compass.
