The Mystery of History Volume III Audio continues the spectacular and provocative study of world history from the viewpoint of a Christian author. Spanning the Renaissance, Reformation, Exploration, and some early American history, this volume explores the backdrop to and the significance surrounding the time-honored contributions found in art, music, literature, science, and philosophy of this rich era.
The Mystery of History series has long been a favorite among Timberdoodle customers. Classic, chronological, and complete, it is full of interesting historical accounts; attention-grabbing, multi-age activities; supplementary book and video lists; and useful timeline suggestions. Now this fabulous program is even easier to use thanks to this 22-CD audio set.
Through the personal narration of the author, Linda Hobar, you and your children can relax and listen to the text of volume 3. If you have the Mystery of History text in hand, you can read along with the author as she personally narrates the stories. Without the text, you can relax and listen as Linda speaks directly to you and your family.
Delightfully mixed background music adds excitement and drama to these significant history lessons.
Audio CDs free mom up to drive, knit, or just cuddle while the entire family unravels the mysteries of the ancient world.

We have really enjoyed listening to the Mystery of History while riding around in the van this summer. The whole family is interested, and it's easy to follow because the format deals with one historical figure at a time. Over all, compared to the Story of the World, I would say that these are not quite as interesting to listen to, and the author puts in many things about what she thinks as she goes along, which I find distracting, and even occasionally misleading, as she passes judgments on the characters and frequently questions their intentions, which would be fine with me except that she also supplies the answers.
With that said, she goes into far more detail than Story of the World, and also covers things like famous women and artists, She also tries to help you connect the dots between the royal family lines and to see correlations between actions and reactions of countries, especially when it comes to the matters of the Protestant reformation.
