Bible-Centered Approach to Learning History
Written by homeschool mom Linda Hobar, The Mystery of History Volume 2 is another spectacular masterpiece. Not just a textbook, The Mystery of History Volume 2 is brimming with multi-age activities, book and video lists, memory helps, and timeline suggestions. 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. What appeals to us most about this program is its worldwide approach to history.
Teaches History from the Early Church through the Middle Ages
The Mystery of History Volume II provides a historically-accurate, Bible-centered approach to learning about the Early Church and the Middle Ages from Pentecost to the printing press! The completely chronological lessons span the continents to shed new light on who walked the earth when God revealed Himself to mankind during this pivotal period of history.
The Mystery of History's user-friendly format presents three lessons per week with hands-on activities, quizzes, tests, a weekly timeline, mapping assignments, and supplemental reading and resource list. Volume I is not a prerequisite but is highly recommended.

My kids absolutely LOVE the Mystery of History! My son has done every year of it and my daughter is working through it, and loves it just as much.
My son has always liked history but now he loves it and wants to do History first. This history is engaging even for reluctant learners. We even like Volume II even more than we liked Volume I. :)
We have used all the Mystery of History Books and love them! The lessons are easily read by the student (which is helpful to a busy momma) and the activities are separated by age, which is also helpful. There are also map pages and time line work if you so choose to do them. Great course!
My girls love this curriculum! After using Vol 1 last year, they asked to use it again this year. History has not been a favorite subject for them in the past. Mystery of History has changed that!
We absolutely loved the Mystery of History Series. It is a wonderful way to put world history alongside biblical history and see how they fit together. The first book had more lesson weeks than we have weeks of school, but we liked the bit shorter lesson lengths in that book. Both books are great for teaching several grades together. It has age appropriate assignments for various levels. Our daughter graduated in May 2008, but I still bought Mystery of History III!! I, personally, want to read it :)
