The Mystery of History Volume III—Student Reader and Companion Guide

$64.95

Volume III covers world history from the Wars of the Roses (1455) to Isaac Watts (1707). Where most Renaissance studies primarily highlight the achievements of mankind, The Mystery of History Volume III shines light on God’s hand in history through the Reformation and synchronizes the Renaissance and Reformation—on one picturesque timeline.

The personal lives of the artists of the Renaissance are not exactly “G” rated. How does the author handle these matters?

The author addresses challenges that the famous artists faced, but, by customer input, does not delve into specific immoral behaviors that families are not yet ready to address.

It’s hard to find art history that is modest. Are there any nudes in Volume III?

No. The author added only modest examples of Renaissance artwork to this volume. For notoriety, the famous nude statue of David by Michelangelo is included, but only from the waist up. (We take seriously the innocence of children! If we missed any little thing that made you feel uncomfortable, let us know! We’re always making revisions.)

We’re a Catholic family. Will we be comfortable with the author’s take on the Protestant Reformation?

While the author is a Protestant, she does not condemn the modern Roman Catholic Church. She steers students to the historical struggle and religious wars between Protestant Reformers and those remaining loyal to the established Medieval Church. The author shares the positive and negative reactions of both sides of the break in Christendom with biblical insights supporting doctrinal issues that were at stake. Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant families successfully use The Mystery of History for world history—and detour where needed to support differing views that may arise.
