Publisher Description:

The Mystery of History Volume III Student Reader continues the spectacular and provocative study of world history from the viewpoint of a Christian author. Spanning the Renaissance, Reformation, Exploration, and some early American history, this volume explores the backdrop to and the significance surrounding the time-honored contributions found in art, music, literature, science, and philosophy of this rich era. Discover 84 stirring lessons written by Linda Lacour Hobar in a colorful, easy-to-hold hardback.

Volume III is a hardcover text with information divided into semesters, then weeks, and then into three lessons for each of 28 weeks. Scattered throughout the book are beautiful full-color illustrations and photos on semi-glossy bordered pages. The student pages, quizzes, and activities, etc. are not found in this text. These are found in the Companion Guide only. Instructions to download a digital copy of this Companion Guide (pdf files) is included with the purchase of the book.

Volume 3 picks up where Volume 2 leaves off. It begins at 1455 AD and goes through 1707 AD. Watch history unfold around the world during that time period, and see how events fit together. You'll meet rulers, painters, sculptors, scientists, and philosophers. History is presented in small, digestible pieces as you learn about the Renaissance and Reformation in Europe, dynasties in India, native Australians, and the Tokugawa family in Japan. You will understand events in light of the times in which they happened. Best of all, the author shows the role of God throughout history.

The Companion Guide is currently available in three different formats. The digital download version is included with the text but you can also purchase a CD-ROM which allows you to print tests, quizzes, exercises, worksheets, maps, and appendix pages from pdf files. The Companion Guide book (looseleaf format) has the same content as the CD-ROM or digital download and is reproducible. ~ Donna

My children, 3rd and 7th grade, are doing World History this year. I wanted a chronological history that told the history of the world, while including which Biblical events were going on. I have always wanted to learn what was going on all over the world at the same time, as opposed to what was going on in one place over all of time.
Heather on Jul 5, 2017
Mystery of History gives a great overview of the world's and Christian history combined. The lessons are easy to read and understand and the projects are fun to do. We have thoroughly enjoyed the first two books and are very much looking forward to studying the third one.
Pavlina D on Jul 3, 2017
"God centered History curriculum. Our group recommends Story of the World, but my son didn't like it, and it didn't seem very thorough.
Andrea N on Jun 30, 2017
I am excited about the hard cover book with color pictures. Mystery of History focuses on the biblical portion of this time period, which is a must in our homeschool. So many important things happened during this time and I want my kids to clearly know what god was doing in His church during this time. I also love that the author includes history from the whole world, rather than only western history.
Kristen D on Apr 24, 2017
We used vols. 1 & 2 and enjoyed both. Met the author at a HS convention in Cinti and she was kind and informative. Really like seeing what various things were going on in the world at the same time. Truly eye opening. Gives you a better view of life at that time from a Christian perspective.
Leslie T on Mar 30, 2017
Easy way to teach chronological history from a Christian perspective. Written in a way that is interesting for upper elementary/middle school students to enjoy.
Tieneke V on Mar 16, 2017
We love The Mystery of History! And with the print out cds, I can use them with all my kids for years to come.
tiffany e on Jan 17, 2017
Loved volume one and two and we are excited to start volume 3! Makes history easy to remember and fun! It's in the top two favorite subject in our hone, along with science.

Volume 2 was a wonderful addition to our classical history routine last year and I expect great things from Volume 3 this year.

Worth it
We love the whole Myster of History series. The moment it arrived, my son browsed through it and he's excited to start studying. The way MOH was presented makes my son wants to know more.

Anti-Catholic Text
After reading through this book in an attempt to lesson plan for the school year, I was very displeased to be faced with a strong anti-Catholic textbook. The author used word choices and tone to suggest that the Catholic Church is dirty and sly in its dealings. Except for 4 instances, she consistently chooses negative examples of people from the Church instead of fairly presenting both issues. It is clear that she does not really understand Catholic teaching or the motivation of the saints in regards to their choices of suffering. She also includes too many references to the sexual lives of the people of history she chooses, especially the artists, which do not have any bearing on their impact on the history of the time. It seems that she is looking for stories with shock factor to interest her readers, but some of those "shocks" are not very historically accurate. There are a few very nice stories in the book that accurately reflect the history of the time, but even these are poorly intertwined with each other to show a true understanding of history as guided by Divine Providence.

Another Great Volume!
This is another great volume from MOH - a great way to learn history as a family, and works well for a wide age range (currently using with my 7th, 5th, and 2nd grader). We are enjoying the hardcover text and the color photos. While I wish the supplemental material was still part of the book, it does keep this text from being as bulky as past volumes.

This is our 3rd year! We have enjoyed the first 2 years. Hoping this will be even better. I as a homeschool mom am learning so much right along with my kids! Well put together books. Projects, research, maps. It's all there.

Still committed to this series, but MUST supplement from Catholic sources because ignorance of the side of the Church is very much present here. I wrote to author and expressed my concerns. I am still buying 4th volume because of the good treatment of other history. Most any informed Catholic would be outraged at some presentation here.

3rd year of Mystery of History
This is our 3rd. Year of using Mystery of History. We have completed V1 and V2. The reason we have stuck with this series is bc we love reading the stories. History is much more fun and memorable when it is a story instead of a bunch of facts to remember. Instead of doing the suggested activities we have discussions about what we read. The new format is great! I love having all the text in a book with beautifully colored pictures.

Loving our MOH
We recently purchased the MOH V3 set mid year as I was unhappy with our current program. I have an older, middle and younger student using this curriculum. This meets everyone's needs and is more than adequate to satisfy requirements at all levels. We enjoy the full color text and how the information is laid out. It is easily everyone's favorite subject. I believe history as a subject can and should be enjoyable and engaging- this fits the bill for our family.
