Since its first publication in 2002, students of all ages have enjoyed The Mystery of History, the award-winning series written by Linda Locour Hobar and puiblished by Bright Ideas Press. This four-volume classical, chronological, complete world history curriculum is written from a Christian worldview with the hope of inspiring generations to know God and make Him known.
Spanning "The Early Church and the Middle Ages," The Mystery of History Volume II covers Paul, Pompeii, St. Patrick, and King Athur. In includes Augustine, the Fall of Rome, the Rise of Islam, and the Crusades. As true world history, this volume looks at Iceland, New Zealand and Zimbabwe as well as the cultures of the Far East, the Vikings, and the Coptic Orthodox. Volume II ends with the classic works of Dante and Chaucer; the tragic death of Joan of Arc; and the invention of the printing press, which helped spread the Word of God to a world in need. None are too young to be fascinated by world history. None are too old to appreciate the revealing of God's plan for mankind.
