Product Description:

Cyrus the Persian: a great king, a great warrior, and an integral part of God's plan for the Jewish return to Canaan. This is the story of the life and ascent of Cyrus and the events that might have transpired during his life leading to the decree that would allow the Israelites to leave Persia. Based on historical fact, author Sherman Nagel's retelling of this story is exciting to read and hard to put down. 184 pgs. ~ Zach

Publisher Description:

The most fascinating story that a man could write is that kind which deals with history that God has shaped. CYRUS THE PERSIAN is that kind of a story, intensely alive and absorbing, because it is drawn from the history of the Jewish people up to the time of their delivery under Cyrus the Great, King of the Medes and the Persians.

These packs were compiled by Diana Waring for use with her Ancient Civilizations and the Bible Study Guide. Although it would be wonderful to have access to all the books referenced in the guide, Diana realizes that this isn't always practical and has thus provided three different packs. The Economy Pack provides just the essentials. The Basic Pack contains the essentials and some others that are also very useful. The largest pack, the Deluxe Pack, holds all the essentials plus extras that are also nice to have for your study. In case you wish to upgrade, Add-On packs are also available.

Sometimes books used in the packs below go out of print. We will make every effort to have the stock we need, however, if a book becomes unavailable, we'll substitute with another book of the author's (Diana Waring) choosing. Please note that because of this, not all books are directly referenced in the study guide.

Category Description for Ancient Civilizations and the Bible:

This is the first of the three studies and covers the time period from Creation to Christ. Diana shows the hand of God as it influenced events from earliest man to the empires of Greece and Rome.

Category Description for Diana Waring History Revealed!:

Diana Waring is once again publishing her History Revealed! program and we are thrilled! Diana Waring embodies the concept that learning should be alive for students, enjoyable, and memorable in both approach and content. Her foundational perspective is that Gods redemptive presence is visible throughout all ages and all history. The goal of History Revealed! is for students to discover history from a Biblical worldview, and to explore history through a curriculum that honors your God-given design. This means learning and expressing what youve learned in a way that best fits you and who you are.

It is designed to guide students through a study of world history from a Biblical perspective. The curriculum does this by providing numerous learning opportunities which include: reading, discussing, researching, music, art, architecture, science projects, cooking, journalism, drama, mapping, graphic design, vocabulary and more. Designed as a multi-learning style program, the units in these courses are based on a four-week cycle through the four basic learning styles, and each course includes 9 units. All the activities and projects during each of these weeks utilize one of the four different learning styles feeler, thinker, sensor, and intuitor making this curriculum easy to use with any child, teenager or even adult who wants to study history from a Biblical perspective. Extensive lists of books (including descriptions) help students discover and explore history. This series gives evidence that history the way the Bible tells it is correct, and is divided into 3 periods: Creation to Christ, Resurrection to Revolution, and Napoleon to the Korean War. From students to teachers, high school to college-bound, professors to 10-year olds, the praise and acclaim for this series is very widespread; crossing not only state lines but also international borders.

The Teacher Guides feature suggested monthly schedules, activity explanations, teacher helps, weekly assessment suggestions, and topic suggestions for research and reading. Small-format student pages are provided in their entirety, to help keep you and your student on the same page. Icons help to mark teaching tips, discussion questions, and opportunities to engage students spiritually. Each icon is accompanied by a shaded box with instruction and/or information. An Appendix contains maps with the answers to workbook mapping activities. All other materials which were previously found in the appendix are in the student pages and small format in the teacher edition.

The Student Manuals contain introductory articles for each unit to provide an overview of that period of history, lots of options for hands-on projects and topics for further research, book lists organized by age group, discussion questions, and self-evaluation questions at the end of each phase in every lesson.

People who have had the opportunity to hear Diana Waring speak live at a homeschooling convention have experienced an amazing thing - theyve told me so. Its impossible to not be drawn in by the enthusiasm, the incredible depth of knowledge, love for the subject, and the dynamic style which characterizes Dianas seminars and workshops. That same experience can be at your very finger-tips with the What in the World? CDs. Diana presents the history of the world in 3 different volumes. These 4-disc sets describe people and events based upon archeology and research. Through listening to her recordings you will hear and envision Gods influence throughout the periods of history. These CDs correspond to the curriculum and tracks are rearranged to align with Usshers chronology. Although central to Dianas curriculum, the CDs can also be used as a supplement to other history programs or for the history buff who just wants to informally learn a little more.

Test Kits cover the material taught in Phase 1 of each unit. Each test includes matching, essay and short answer questions.

New for 2016 are Essentials Packs. These include: Student Manual, Teacher Guide, What in the World CD Set, and Test Kit plus three NEW components: Rubric Set, Quick Start Guide, and Basic Lesson Plan. Designed to give you a jump start in the prepping, planning, and grading aspects of these courses, these new components are attractive and easy to use. The Quick Start Guide provides an overview of History Revealeds four phases: Introduction, Exploration, Hands-on, and Expression as well as an introduction to package components. The Basic Lesson Plan has two options 3-Day (1.5 2 hour sessions) and 5-Day (30-60 minutes sessions) providing a daily plan for each. The Rubrics Set is the crowning gem. One of the hardest aspects of a nontraditional learning approach is knowing how to establish grades. This set provides guidelines for students (to know what to focus on) as well as parents/teachers. With rubrics for research projects, linguistic presentations, cultural/science projects, art projects, music presentations (and more), youll feel comfortable and capable of giving a fair and encouraging grade for all aspects of these courses. Diana Warings multi-sensory and biblical worldview approach to world history has been loved and appreciated for years. These Essential Packs have added a whole new layer of user-friendliness.

Additional resources that complement the program include: True Tales CDs, Digging Deeper CDs and an Elementary Activity Book. True Tales are 3-CD sets which allow you to experience a guided tour of Ancient, Medieval, and Modern History as Diana Waring skillfully tells fascinating stories of people and places of long ago.

The Digging Deeper CDs present facts from history and specifically church history. For younger students, there is an Elementary Activity Book. A fun activity book, for grades K-4, parallels units for older students, making the study of history easily accomplished with multiple children at different grade levels. Bursting with pictures to color, maps and mazes, crafts, science experiments, recipes, crossword puzzles, word scrambles, coded messages, somewhat silly songs to sing, goofy games, and many more fun things, parents and children alike will greatly appreciate history set at a simpler level. All instructions for activities are included right in the book. Much of the teaching for this book is found in the audio set, What in the World?, which the author suggests you use to gain an overview in your study. When and what to listen to is listed in the Teacher Guide and Student book, but you could probably figure this part out for yourself and eliminate the need for the additional purchase.

Add to end of description: “Because of its non-traditional approach, the author created a Rubrics Set, a grading tool to help parents assess the student’s projects. This rubrics book is included in all packages and is also sold separately.

We offer packages of all resources for each time period in several different bundles as well as book packs of recommended literature.

This book brings the time of the Medes and Persians alive and makes many interesting connections about Daniel and the Jews at that time.

We studied Ancient History in school this year One book we read aloud was The Exiled Prince by Elizabeth Rice Hanford a book about Daniel in the Bible One of the chapters in this book was about Cyrus the Persian who lived during Daniel�s life It told how Cyrus� grandfather the king ordered the death of Cyrus when he was born The king�s servant gave the baby to a shepherd to dispose of However the shepherd had just lost a baby boy of his own so he and his wife kept young Cyrus to raise as their own child Eventually this was discovered Cyrus grew up and as a ruler of Persia freed the Jews from their Babylonian captivity I was fascinated with the story in this one chapter as I had never heard the story before When I got out the historical fiction books that I had purchased for this unit imagine my surprise to discover that I had purchased Cyrus the Persian an entire book about this same person! The book fleshes out and expands the whole story of Cyrus� birth and life in historical fiction format showing the marvelous hand of God�s providence to preserve a person destined to help His chosen people My husband and I read the book as well as all our children ages 12 and up We all had a hard time putting the book down it was such a captivating story This is an excellent book to go along with your study of Old Testament Bible or Ancient Babylon Mystery of History Vol 1 has a lesson on Cyrus the Great so this book would be good to use as extra reading or a read-aloud along with that course
