SERIES PHILOSOPHY

When studying history, there are often two approaches taken by Christian homeschooling parents. The first option is to focus on the Bible as the main history book and to supplement it here and there with secular world history. The second option is to focus on secular world history and supplement it here and there with some Bible accounts. The problem with both of these options is that it leaves students unable to really grasp how secular world history and the Bible fit together. This fragmented approach also denies students the chance to see the evidence of God’s hand on history.

Those parents who do wish to study both of them together quickly find that they must amass a host of separate resources and then try to figure out how to piece them together into a coherent presentation that their children can understand. Too often those resources disagree on dates, contain conflicting information, and often discount the Bible entirely. Parents are left wondering which resource to follow and have almost no assistance in actually aligning it with their study of Biblical history. The result is chaos and a defeated attitude.

This curriculum aims to solve both of those problems. Christian parents can rest assured that the Bible is upheld as a completely accurate account of history. Yet, they can also know that their children will come away with a clear understanding of world history and how it unfolded.
