CHRONOLOGICAL, CHRISTIAN, and COMPLETE
A World History Curriculum for All Ages
The Mystery of History, Volume I (Second Edition), spans “Creation to the Resurrection” (c. 4004 b.c.–c. a.d. 33) and provides a historically accurate, Bible-based approach to learning ancient world history. By incorporating hands-on activities along with reading, writing, and research projects, The Mystery of History offers something for all learning styles and supports all methods of education.
Chronological — Beginning with Creation, The Mystery of History four-volume series presents world history in chronological order, covering the nations of China, Egypt, Greece, India, Israel, Persia, Rome, and more. Of great significance, Volume I weaves “Bible history” and “world history” together in a unique and meaningful way. For example, on the same timeline you will see these Bible characters near their world-famous contemporaries: Joshua and King Tut; Daniel and Aesop; Ezekiel and Buddha; Nehemiah and Socrates, and many more.
Christian — The Mystery of History is distinctly written from a Christian worldview. Creation-based, Christ-centered, and standing on the authoritative Word of God, lessons in The Mystery of History are like fragments of a mosaic that, when put together, reveal a much bigger picture and tell a much larger story. From Noah, Abraham, and Moses, to Nebuchadnezzar, Artaxerxes, and Augustus Caesar, the Lord has been at work to reveal Himself to mankind through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Complete — Divided into thirty-six weeks of study, The Mystery of History, Volume I, is easy to use for one student at home, ten in a co-op, or hundreds in a school.
