Humanities Course Information
We believe that the Bible is the literal word of God and every word is true. We also believe the Bible to be FOUNDATIONAL HISTORY and God’s revelation to man of HIStory. Studying history through the lens of God’s redemptive plan for man (and us individually) breathes life into an otherwise “dull narrative with no apparent relationship to us today.”
We are pleased to offer students in Grades 5-9 a comprehensive and chronological study of history (from a western perspective) cycling through four major time periods from Creation through Ancient civilizations . . . to the Early Church and Middle Ages . . . the Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations . . . all the way to today’s modern world.
We have chosen the acclaimed world history series The Mystery of History™ by Linda Hobar as the spine text for our Humanities courses. Each volume not only introduces the people, places, and events of history, but how God has revealed himself to man throughout history. Mrs. Hobar says of her series, “I wrote this curriculum with the hope of inspiring generations to know God and make Him known. One way to do that is through the fascinating study of world history. World history to me is not just dates, events, and revolutions – it’s the story of God revealing Himself to mankind.”
Each course contains much more than chronological history as fabulous as that is in itself. We combine all the elements you would expect from a great Humanities course: biblical worldview, lively text, great literature, geography, and timelines, along with our own study of the artists and composers of the time period. Check out the options below. We will rotate the courses and offer two per year.
