Product Description:

Fans of Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the Worldare thankful she's writing a series for young (and not-so-young) adults. History of the Renaissance World is third in this series and tells the story of a world in transition. From the end of the First Crusade through the beginnings of our modern world, Ms. Bauer details the declining influence of the Popes even as the Inquisition seeks to assert their control; ordinary people seizing power even as kings and emperors cling to their "divine rights"; and world-changing catastrophes (ie. Little Ice Age, Great Famine, and Black Death); even as adventurous exploration opens up new worlds. Plentiful maps and illustrations accompany the distinctively readable text. ~ Janice

We are interested in adopting a new curriculum for 9th - 12th grade history. We are hoping that Susan Wise Bauer will complete the scope and sequence with a Modern World History text.

BEST ANSWER: While the author has a background in religious studies, (according to her website she holds "a Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia"), the book itself is not religious in tone. She does explore the influence of various religions on the shaping of history, rather than avoiding the topic, but does so in an unbiased, factual manner.
