Product Description


Creation to the Resurection

by Linda Lacour Hobar

The author explains this program:

In Volume I of The Mystery of History, I cover world history from Creation to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The text spans the incredible stories of ancient times, ancient lands, and ancient peoples.

Where most ancient studies encompass only Egypt, Greece, and Rome, The Mystery of History goes much farther. In Volume I, I include chronologically based stories from all around the world. Beginning with the Garden of Eden, stories will spread from Sumer and Babel to Troy, Phoenicia, and Assyria. The study of early civilizations will include King Wu of China and Asoka of India as well as King David, Julius Caesar, and Xerxes of Persia. Even North America is visited in our look at ancient peoples.

Above all, a favorite feature of Volume I is the weaving of Bible history with world history. In reality, it is all world history. But for most of us, history has not been taught this way. It has not been integrated. In The Mystery of History, I have retold major stories from the Bible in the order that they happened alongside significant world history events and figures. As an example, each one of the Old Testament prophets are given a biographical lesson near their contemporaries in old world history.

More examples of interesting figures who lived just decades apart include: Joshua and King Tut; Ruth and Helen of Troy; Daniel and Aesop; Ezekiel and Buddha; and Nehemiah and Socrates. Imagine lining up such amazing figures on one master timeline! Imagine learning their stories back to back in the order they happened! For most of us, its an illuminating experience.

And, now through an 8 CD audio set, you can listen to the stories of Volume I through the voice of the author, Linda Lacour Hobar. With 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. Beautifully mixed background music adds life, drama, and more meaning to these timeless historical lessons. In the car, over lunch, before bed, or as an integral part of your school day you can journey through the ancient world at your own pace.
