Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ... the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to world history. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and continues through the early church and into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history.

Purchase of the hardcover Student Text includes a digital access code to download the Companion Guide. This guide includes PDF files of all of the reproducible materials including pre-tests, quizzes, exercises, worksheets, activity instructions, tests, outline maps, resource lists, appendix pages and more. A printed Companion Guide is also available to purchase for those preferring a physical copy. Information to access the digital component is included on a separate card included in the textbook. Shrink wrapped.

The Audio CD Set allows you to listen to author Linda Lacour Hobar read the complete and unabridged text. Students can read along with the author as she narrates the stories or just sit back and listen. Please note the CDs contain the story lessons only and do not include pretests, activities, quizzes, and so forth. At some points in the narration, music has been added behind the author's voice, but non-musical versions are also available for download on the publisher's website. 12 CDs, running time 13 hours, 58 minutes. ~ Steph

Category Description for Mystery of History:

This conversationally written, chronological, 4-year-cycle program is specifically designed so that multiple ages can simultaneously study God’s sovereignty throughout history, from Creation to the 21st century. History is His story, after all. As a Christ-centered study written by a home school mom, each reader volume in the series chronicles key individuals and events that demonstrate the hand of divine providence through the highs and lows of human history. Tough elements are not ignored, and key church history is included. Trace the hand of God through historical events. Volume 1 focuses on Ancient History (ending with the life and resurrection of Jesus); Volume 2 Middle Ages; Volume 3 Renaissance, Reformation & Growth of Nations; and Volume 4 studies Revolutions to Rising Times (1708 - 2010). Each volume provides from 28 to 36 weekly lessons. Reading level will advance in difficulty as learners work through the 4-volume cycle (See individual descriptions for details). This program adapts easily to a classical, Charlotte Mason, or more traditional approach.

The essential hub of the course is the Reader Text, which includes a unique-user PDF download code of the volume-specific Companion Guide. This course achieves a nice balance of structure, routine, and consistent learning versus variety, choice, and independent customization. The 3 weekly required lessons found in the Reader are framed among pleasant layout and appealing full-color photographs. Read the narratives aloud or have older students read independently. The remaining necessary components come from the Companion Guide: teaching information and directions, the scope and sequence, the pretest, quarterly worksheets, tests and quizzes, mapwork, timeline (called the Wall of Fame), and memory cards (key details of each key historical element learned that week). For mapwork assistance, the publishers highly recommend the customizable, digital WonderMaps (item 082644) or these 2 book-based atlases: The Student Bible Atlas (item 00167 particularly for Volume 1) or Rand McNally’s Historical Atlas of the World (item 00733). Thus far, the amount of work I’ve described might suffice for students, particularly in grades 1-6. But then you’d miss out on all the included items which allow you to personalize to your specific goals, family situation, students—and you!

As a convenience, printed Companion Guides are available on our website as separate purchases for Volumes 1-4. Whether using the digital or printed, the additional suggestions and optional resources provide a wealth of options for different ages. The 500+ pages specifically tailored to each volume include the required course items, as well as hands-on activities for younger, middle, and older students (with any needed instructions or templates and photos); field trip suggestions; semester tests; research and writing exercises; a detailed supplementary Book and Resource list (general books, Bible, read-alouds, references, and creation science museums/zoos); and Lesson Resources (specific books, films, and Bible chapters that correlate to lessons in the Student Reader).

Optional resources are now available as digital downloads. These include Challenge Cards, Notebooking Pages, Folderbooks, Super Supplemental Set, and Cookbook. The Challenge Cards contain over 300 question-and-answer cards and a dozen game ideas. Coloring Pages include 36 collage-style coloring pages. Notebooking Pages include ruled & unruled pages for hand-written narration, information pages, and fillable PDF pages for computer use. Folderbooks (a.k.a. lapbook) can be downloaded as well. Providing your own manilla folder, and using the included items, students create folders representing content from the lessons. The Super Supplemental Set includes all 4 items as downloads in one purchase. The Volume 2 downloadable Cookbook includes historical recipes from the Early Church and the Middle Ages. Audio books of each Volume are available for purchase at the author's web site. Make the road to understanding His Story throughout time a delight with this history series! ~ Ruth

I like the option of being able to print out the items I need for my individual students instead of the physical book taking up valuable space in my bookshelf.

Excellent curriculum with a biblical worldview.

For the ease of printing out the tests and quizzes. The book is way to big to put on the copier.
Kristin B on Nov 7, 2018
I didn't want to go through the whole book and try to copy the pages I needed. Easier, convenient, time-saver
Melody S on Jul 25, 2018
Purchased the complete set of Vol 2 since we have a large family of different style learners
Kimberly S on May 25, 2018
Definitely more convenient to just print several weeks worth of maps, review worksheets and quizzes all at once, rather than flipping all over the book and copying on a scanner!
Courtney E on Mar 22, 2017
It is much easier to print off tests, quizes, maps, etc., rather than trying to photocopy them out of the book.
Betsy G on Feb 14, 2017
We already did volume 1 and want to continue. I am going to try this instead of the textbook because I buy the audio cds.
Amy H on Nov 16, 2016
I purchased this for the ease of printing multiple copies of the resources in the text as I used this with more than one child.
Kelly F on Sep 19, 2016
We used Mystery of History 1 last year. I did not buy the CD of reproducible forms but opted to just make copies from the pages in the back of the book. I found that this was tedious and time consuming since the book was bulky for the printer. I'm hoping that this will save me some time and encourage me to actually print out the activities for the children.
Andy O on Sep 5, 2016
Because the book was written in, I needed clean worksheets for a new student, and the download on the MOH website was "out of stock."
Heather D on Aug 1, 2016
Goes with the history curriculum
Kimberly B on Jul 22, 2016
This is by far our favorite history curriculum. My son would love it if I just read to him from MOH all day, every day. :)
Jennifer J on Jul 18, 2016
So much easier to use the reproducible CD than to try to copy from the book.

This is well worth the money, just for the ease of printing and not having to try to make copies from the giant paper-bound textbook. Just be sure to check "Current Page Only" when printing as it ALWAYS goes back to the default setting which would print the entire book.

Great supplement
Really nice having this CD to print off the various maps, quizzes, etc. Makes it much easier than laying the book up on the copier. Plus the copies are nice and even. I feel it also saves on ink as I can adjust the quality of the copy.
