I'm all for giving consideration to different viewpoints and I understand this is a Christian curriculum. We are only a few chapters in but I am already looking for alternatives that focus more on the history and less on the (controversial) science and advancing a specific agenda.

Fun and informative
The readings are short but informative and the activities are easy to throw together with supplies around the house. I love that it presents history from a Christian point of view. We've only completed the first few lessons but my kids keep begging to do more!

Loving History!
I have two children (both doing third grade work). I got this history book after reading reviews about it. I wanted something with more hands on but couldn't find anything I liked. This is wonderful because it is layout well. The kids enjoy doing their timeline. I find coloring pages to go with some of the lessons. Pinterest has many ideas on activities for lessons but the books has activities too. We also make our own memory card, which we review often so they don't forget what we have already learned. I am learning things as we go along too. History isn't boring to them anymore!

Used for homeschooling
This is the first year using this curriculum, and both my son and I love it. The time we spend reading, writing, doing the activities and tests are well spent. For the first time in two years, my son feels motivated to study history. Although I may not necessarily agree with the dates used for the timeline, I use the information as a springboard to discuss the differing views in the Christian community. Also, even though it may not be an in depth study, it's enough to whet our appetite to investigate further. Furthermore, the reason why I chose this curriculum, is because I feel, as a Christian, it is vital to build a strong biblical foundation for our children. Exposing them to different views, such as a young or old earth theory, et al, is a crucial part of becoming a well informed Christian. We will continue to use this curriculum for the next two years, i.e. using the next two volumes (Volume 2 and 3), one for each year.

Endless study topics
We are using Mystery of History for the first time. We are enjoying studying from creation to crucifixion. It is interesting to learn how it all fits together in world history. There are endless possibilities with this curriculum. We spin of the daily lesson and can add videos, crafts, vocabulary words, math problems. It is a great fit for us.

Mystery of History, Vol I - Great!
I bought this to use alongside our Bible Geography class at co op. I have not found any other resource that gives the teacher so much great background info. A great book for upper level students, or to teach from for lower grades.

Gives approximate dates, like a study Bible, but it is all 'right here, arranged by historical events through the BC time periods, and beyond. As in Assyrian captivity (Ninevah) to Babylon - (Daniel), then later on to Persia (Esther). So, Ancient History made understandable!

The student Bible atlas that is also available through Rainbow Resources gives the maps that correspond to the historical events.

I give it a 5 star and am anxious to give the next volumes a try!

Nice presentation of History
This is the best format I have seen to teach history to my son. This has history in manageable pieces. Some of the activities arent really our cup of tea. I don't have a girl who would enjoy all the "crafty" elements. We don't do notebooking...

I do have to find additional resources and activities on my own. But, he is interested!

Mom is learning, too!
I don't know where my head was when I took history classes in school, but now I am learning alongside my student! The lessons are short, but packed with interesting info in a conversational style that is easy to follow. I love seeing biblical history meshed with "textbook history." (Somehow the two were separate in my mind?) We aren't doing as many of the "younger student" projects as I had envisioned, but are learning just the same. I don't feel like we're leaving anything out, and when we want to dig deeper we just head to the library.

I have always wanted to learn what was going on all over the world at the same time, as opposed to what was going on in one place over all of time.

Also. at the end of each story an assignment is given based on your child's ability. You have assignments for younger, middle or older students. The assignments vary from lesson to lesson. I like that there are research and writing assignments involved. We plan to continue using the series in the years to come.

I am a CM educator with a passion for the historicity of Scripture. I prefer to study world events chronologically across cultures, rather than study (Egypt/Greece/Rome) culture in a vacuum. I plan to spread this resource over 2 years in order to add living books. We will not do the activities etc, but will use CM methods to secure understanding. After vol 1, we will likely be done with MOH, as other time periods do not have the same challenges as ancient history.

Searching for a Christian worldview history book. We have been finding some secular books that speak about other events happening in the world at Colonial times, etc. and find that to be a more rounded approach. Goal is to help my children understand that although the Bible is not meant to be a history book, these are real people, real events and fit into our world history.

Is the supplemental CD a good buy, or is all of that included in the book?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends on which supplemental CD you are referencing.
#001304 - Companion Guide - are student worksheets included (and reproducible) with the Volume 1 text. The Companion Guide CD is pdf files which allows you to print from the file rather than copying from the text.

https://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=001304

The Volume 1 Craft Pack CD - #037864 - is material that is not included in the text.

https://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=037864
How much illustrating and such would we miss out on if we did just the CD's?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Do you mean just listen to the story on the CD's? Or do you mean just buy the extra resources cd? I don't have the extra resources CD but I do have the book and the CDs of the readings. The CD is only the author reading the exact words printed in the lesson in the book. It's usually about 1 1/2 pages in the book. She does not explain further, or offer any activities, or anything extra. The book is what has the teacher info, mapwork, pictures, quizzes and tests, and the activities. There are activities for each lesson for younger students, middle students, and older students, and sometimes more than one for some age categories. We don't do all the activities but we do some, as many as I feel we can allow time for in a given week. I do the program 3x/week with my kids.
Is this the latest revision?
Marsha Q on Oct 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's the Second Edition, which is the latest as far as I know. We borrowed the First Edition from our library before we bought this. The Second is a bit larger with some updates to earlier scholarship and a few other changes. Either is adequate, in my opinion.

    Searching for a Christian worldview history book. We have been finding some secular books that speak about other events happening in the world at Colonial times, etc. and find that to be a more rounded approach. Goal is to help my children understand that although the Bible is not meant to be a history book, these are real people, real events and fit into our world history.

    Time for us to Ancients. Have read SOTW and we're missing the Bible/ Christian influence on the timeline.

    Is the supplemental CD a good buy, or is all of that included in the book?
    A shopper on Feb 5, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: It depends on which supplemental CD you are referencing.
    #001304 - Companion Guide - are student worksheets included (and reproducible) with the Volume 1 text. The Companion Guide CD is pdf files which allows you to print from the file rather than copying from the text.

    The Volume 1 Craft Pack CD - #037864 - is material that is not included in the text.

    How much illustrating and such would we miss out on if we did just the CD's?
    A shopper on Sep 12, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Do you mean just listen to the story on the CD's? Or do you mean just buy the extra resources cd? I don't have the extra resources CD but I do have the book and the CDs of the readings. The CD is only the author reading the exact words printed in the lesson in the book. It's usually about 1 1/2 pages in the book. She does not explain further, or offer any activities, or anything extra. The book is what has the teacher info, mapwork, pictures, quizzes and tests, and the activities. There are activities for each lesson for younger students, middle students, and older students, and sometimes more than one for some age categories. We don't do all the activities but we do some, as many as I feel we can allow time for in a given week. I do the program 3x/week with my kids.
    Is this the latest revision?
    Marsha Q on Oct 18, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: It's the Second Edition, which is the latest as far as I know. We borrowed the First Edition from our library before we bought this. The Second is a bit larger with some updates to earlier scholarship and a few other changes. Either is adequate, in my opinion.
