All You Need to Teach History from Ancient Civilizations through the Time of Christ
Written by homeschool mom Linda Hobar, The Mystery of History is one spectacular masterpiece. It is all your family will need to teach history from ancient civilizations through to the time of Christ. Written in a conversational style for elementary through high school students, The Mystery of History can also be used as a read-aloud with younger children.
Not just a textbook, Volume I includes a Companion Guide that is brimming with multi-age activities, book and video lists, memory helps, and timeline suggestions. A digital version of the Companion Guide is included with the Student Reader as a download code. For your family’s convenience, this print Companion Guide is also available. This option is particularly beneficial for families with younger students in elementary and middle grades.
Teaches History from Creation to the Resurrection
What appeals to us most about this program is its worldwide approach to history. Did you know that less than ten years after Jonah's trial in a fish, Rome was being established? Or that the last book of the Old Testament was written at about the time of Alexander the Great and that the Great Wall of China was built 200 years before the birth of Christ?
As they read the Bible, Christians tend to forget that there were other civilizations warring, struggling, and searching for truth. So this history program is written with both Biblical and secular history combined. While decidedly Christian in bent, other cultures and faiths are presented with deference.
The Mystery of History was designed with a thirty-six-week school year in mind. Each week includes a pre-test, three lessons, a review, and an exercise or quiz. If your family is ready to study history in an in-depth, Bible-centered, chronological fashion, The Mystery of History is for you.
