In Christianity, for instance, reliance on God as the ultimate and, finally, only explanatory factor has never wavered. An approach to human life as unfolding in divine history is common to all three main forms of the Abrahamic religion. Christianity shares with the other Abrahamic religions the view that history is neither inherently meaningless, nor limited to the meaning we give it. It rather has an intrinsic meaning deriving from God. This religious belief transforms what for some is the result of the interaction of economic forces, for others the collision of different civilizations, and for still others a clash of differing ideologies, into a moral contest between good and evil.
