Easy to Use for All Ages

Historically Accurate & Chronological

This series is historically accurate and chronological to help students trace cause and effect, relevance, and the timeless significance of world history.

Integrated History

Unlike most programs, The Mystery of History integrates sacred and secular history on one continuous timeline—to reveal God’s sovereign hand in history.

"Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel in the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandments of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith-to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen." (Romans 16:25-27)
