Through the Banner of Truth Trust, an organisation he founded in the 1950s to stimulate interest in Reformed theology, Iain H. Murray has done much to stimulate a consciousness of history amongst British and American evangelicals. Through a continuous stream of publications, including many biographies, Murray constructed a version of the history of English-speaking evangelicalism in terms of the faithfulness or otherwise of various individuals to certain theological propositions. In his hands, church history has been used as a tool to warn against error and to champion Reformed theology and religious revival. He has been one of the chief contemporary exponents of a richly providentialist approach to history and one of the sternest critics of those evangelical historians who have chosen to relegate divine agency to the background in their historical work.
