CHRONOLOGICAL, CHRISTIAN, and COMPLETE
The Mystery of History, Volume II (c. A.D. 33–1456), provides a historically accurate, Bible-based approach to learning the history of the Early Church and the Middle Ages. By incorporating hands-on activities along with reading, writing, and research projects, The Mystery of History offers something for all learning styles and supports all methods of education.
Chronological – Beginning with Creation, The Mystery of History four-volume series presents world history in chronological order, covering every significant corner of the globe. Volume II specifically focuses on people of the Early Church, like Paul, St. Augustine, and Jerome, and weaves them into the traditional stories of the Middle Ages, such as the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the invasion of the Vikings, and the Crusades of Richard the Lionhearted. In this exciting journey through time, students will also meet world figures like Vladimir I, El Cid, William Wallace, and Joan of Arc while learning about the Magna Carta, the Black Death, the Forbidden City, and much more.
Christian – The Mystery of History is distinctively written from a Christian worldview. Creation-based, Christ-centered, and standing on the authoritative Word of God, lessons in The Mystery of History are like fragments of a mosaic that, when put together, reveal a much bigger picture and tell a much larger story. They point toward God’s redemptive plan for mankind through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
