In Where Myth and History Meet, Craig Payne draws upon the work of Mircea Eliade, C.S. Lewis, and others, to present a view of the relationship between myth and Christianity. The author briefly argues against two other views of this relationship: the view that biblical writings are to be accepted as straightforward history, with no regard to their mythic content or parallels; and the view that biblical writings (especially the Gospels) are simply another form of myth, with no regard to their presentation as factual history. Opposed to these views, Payne argues that Christianity is a sui generis phenomenon: the union of mythic saga with historical narrative, the eternal Word which became flesh.
