Publisher Description:

  • It was during the 1800s that the river of humanism began to cut a many-streamed delta across the western world: mankind believed his "progress" placed him at the center of science, industry, philosophy, literature, etc., with the power to re-write life's most basically-held truths.
  • But the fountain of spiritual renewal was also bubbling in a concern for missions, slavery, revival, and more.
  • News of the American Revolution had given many freedom-parched Europeans a desire for liberty. Their problems were very real, but they had to decide who had the answers: God, Karl Marx, or the sophisticated humanism swiftly consuming even the Christian church.
  • In all that, history was marching on: Napoleon's conquests, the Industrial Revolution, the Romantic Movement in art, the rise of socialism, etc.
  • America was just a fledgling nation, facing the War of 1812 and then the fearsome Civil War/War Between the States. She never stopped growing though, as pioneers poured into the new Louisiana Purchase and down the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails.

Category Description for TruthQuest History:

On occasion you might hear someone define history as the struggle between the haves and the have-nots. As Christians living in a secular society, it is often easy to imbibe false ideas. This history curriculum won't let you have that kind of false idea for long. Instead, you will come to understand the true (i.e. Biblical) definition of history. For example, in your study of Ancient Rome, you will see how the beliefs which nations/individuals hold about God and man can affect the course of history, culture, government etc. This history curriculum is not dependant on specific books since the goal is not to guide students through books, but to guide them through history. Many, many books are recommended since the guide provides very little text (just basic summaries); however, the beauty is that students can pick whichever ones appeal to them or are readily available. No more searching for those impossible to find required readers! As you work your way through the books, you will be challenged to think about some things, to research others, and complete ThinkWrite sections at the back of the book. These sections are designed for students in grades 5-12. Responses to the ThinkWrite sections can be done in a variety of ways including skits, diaries, news reports, models, projects, drawings, and essays.

A new study in this series combines Creation and the Old Testament with the study of Ancients and Egypt. This book follows the same format as the other studies in this series allowing you to choose the reading and resources. The Bible is the ultimate authority on history, but the author suggests some other spines that may be referenced throughout the study - Child's Story Bibleby Catherine Vos, Genesis: A commentary for Childrenby Nancy Ganz, Story of the Ancient World by C. Miller & H.A. Guerber, Book of the Ancient Worldby Dorothy Mills, Streams of Civilization Vol. 1, Genesis: Finding Our Roots by Ruth Beechick, and Greenleaf Guide to the Old Testament. These books aren't required, but are helpful resources if you want to read more on the topics. May your study of history become a study of His Story. ~ Genevieve / Donna
