The Mystery of History Volume 4
The Mystery of History Volume IV Student Reader
The final volume of The Mystery of History spans three weighty centuries, from 1708 to 2014. The hardcover Volume IV Reader comes with a digital download code for a Companion Guide, which provides pretests, activities, quizzes, timeline directions, mapping exercises, and literature suggestions. When your family is ready to study history in an in-depth, Bible-centered, chronological fashion, then The Mystery of History is for you.
The Mystery of History Volume IV, the last and final volume of this world history series, spans three pressure-filled centuries from 1708 to 2014. Starting with Bach and Handel, two of four major composers included in Volume IV, the time period will see numerous “wars of independence.” From the American colonies, the heart of Mexico, the goldmines of Australia, the mountaintops of South America, the shores of Greece, and the walls of the Alamo, we will find mankind desperately striving for liberty and freedom through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Most of the time, he will achieve it – but seldom without heartache, revolution, and bloodshed!
The Mystery of History Volume IV is written at a 9th-10th grade reading level, and is geared primarily for older students. Due to the more heartbreaking and gruesome events of modern history, some families will prefer to use Volume IV with only high school students, or to skip portions when working with younger students. As with other volumes in this series, activities are provided for a range of ages from K-12th Grade.

My daughter loves this fun and interesting approach to history
My daughter loves it. It has a fun and interesting approach to history
My 15 year old son is completing the 4th volume in conclusion to this series having read all of them. I love how it intertwines secular history with Biblical history making the Bible come alive and brings context. My son reads the weekly chapters Mon-Wed and does the map and quiz on Thur. This has given him a well rounded historical worldview. It's not technically heavy and is written in an engaging format even for a boy where history isn't his favorite subject. Great series.
I ordered the entire set plus the CD set of the Mystery of History for my 5 boys, ages: 12, 9, 6, 5, & 3 and they are all super excited to begin learning History! As a child, I hated every subject except reading, grammar and spelling but I am amazed at how intriguing this History curriculum is. I am learning alongside my children and I am loving it as much as they are!
