Product Description

by Linda Lacour Hobar

One of Cathy Duffy's 100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum! The Mystery of History provides a historically accurate, Bible-centered approach to learning ancient history. The completely chronological lessons shed new light on who walked the earth when, as well as on where important Bible figures fit into secular history. Volume 1 covers Creation to Resurrection, and Volume 2 covers the Early Church to the Middle Ages. This unique history curriculum was written for 4th-8th graders, but it is adaptable for both older and younger students.

The author explains the program:

The Mystery of History Volume II (AD 30 - 1456) picks up where the story of Volume I leaves off - at the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the first lesson I address Acts 1:8 with the promise of the Father to send the Holy Spirit. It is called the Day of Pentecost. From there, the history of the Early Church really begins. It is not an easy history to digest. It was amid trials, persecution, and martyrdom that the magnificent story of Jesus Christ spread.

In Volume II, I expand on the fall of the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages that followed. This text delves into the chivalry of knights and damsels, kings and queens, and the peasants who faithfully served them. Students visit Vikings and villains; castles and crusades; and the poetry of Dante and Chaucer.

Beyond Europe, this volume examines the life of Mohammed and the spread of Islam along with the rise and fall of dynasties in Japan and China. In Africa, Volume II looks at the Coptic (Egyptian) Church and Great Zimbabwe in the south. Students and I unveil the rituals of the Aztecs and the gold of the Incas in Peru. And in two distant corners of the earth, at nearly the same time, the peoples of New Zealand and Greenland emerge into our view of world history.

All along the way, Volume II of The Mystery of History pauses to hear the voice of God as He speaks through missionaries like Columba, St. Patrick, and Cyril. We see the struggles within the church as it grows, expands, and threatens the authority of emperors and kings. I ended this volume with with the tragic death of Joan of Arc, the fall of Constantinople, and the invention of the printing press which spreads the Word of God across Europe.

You wont find these significant and amazing stories packaged together just anywhere. Ive done the research for you so that you and your students are free to absorb this history and explore the untold mysteries in between.
