Publisher Description:

  • Whew! What can be said?! This final guide in the series tackles the most profound issues and needs of our day which are, of course, spiritual at their heart.
  • Specifically, the students will see that folks were already yearning for a world without God, a world wherein mankind did not spring from a Creator and could thus rule himself. Of course, Darwin granted their wish. But much more than an issue of primordial ooze and monkeys, evolution would fuel the unbelievably drastic changes that have shaken western civilization. Your children will see this heart-issue in each sphere of life--art, law, human worth, government, education, science, business, and more--as each is thoroughly explored.
  • Alas, with broken heart, we will also see that the euphoria of this "progressivism" has yielded deep discouragement and alienation. It specifically fueled the tragedies of the 1900s, such as World War I and II. Its fragmented and mechanical view of all life, including that of humans, is mourned in modern art and music.
  • Yet, that is not the end of the story! God and His truth are still the only source of life, freedom, prosperity, and joy! And our children have this great message! Thus, this final guide focuses not on the 'gloom and doom' of the post-modern, post-Christian world they are inheriting, but on the great mantle of authority which rests gloriously on each young believer who chooses to find their place in HIStory! It draws together all that your children have learned throughout TruthQuest History so they can express it to this hurting world. History is also about the present and the future! There is hope!
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

best curriculum choice I have ever made
TruthQuest History is the best curriculum choice I have ever made. We love the literature based approach of how mankind interacts with GOD and as a result how mankind with his fellow man. Michelle Miller's commentary is deep and thought provoking providing lots of great discussions. The ThinkWrites help us bring our thoughts together and then get them down on paper. This will be our 12th year using TruthQuest and our 8th guide. I feel good that my kiddos don't just know facts about history, but have experienced it (through the many awesome recommended books) and have most importantly seen GOD's hand in it.
