Category Description for Mystery of History:

This four-volume world history series provides students with a biblically-based and engaging overview of leading events and personalities from creation to the early 21st century. The series is chronological in structure while employing a number of classical education methods. Volume 1 examines Ancient History, Volume 2 the Middle Ages, Volume 3 the Renaissance, Reformation & Growth of Nations, while Volume 4 studies Revolutions to Rising Times (1708 - 2010). Each volume has from 28 to 36 weekly lessons. The essential resources at each level are the Student Text (Reader) and separate Companion Guide that includes research and writing exercises, map and timeline work, quarterly worksheets, tests and quizzes, and a wide variety of hands-on activities. The Guides (pdf files) are available, depending on the volume, in print form, as a CD, and/or in digital download format. Optional resources include audio versions of each text, as well as "super supplemental" CD's in PDF format that feature coloring pages, notebooking sheets and extra challenge/enrichment plans that can be printed at will.


Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ... the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to world history. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and continues through the early church and into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history.

A Companion Guide CD-ROM holds printable reproducibles from Volume Two. These include pre-tests, quizzes, exercises, worksheets, tests, maps, and appendix pages. No more photocopying if you have more than one student, and you'll be able to preserve your textbook! The CD-ROM is PC/Mac compatible with Adobe Reader (a free download).

The Audio CD Set allows you to listen to author Linda Lacour Hobar read the complete and unabridged text. Students can read along with the author as she narrates the stories or just sit back and listen. Please note the CDs contain the story lessons only and do not include pretests, activities, quizzes, and so forth. At some points in the narration, music has been added behind the author's voice, but non-musical versions are also available for download on the publisher's website. 12 CDs, running time 13 hours, 58 minutes. ~ Steph

A shopper on Jul 30, 2018
