The Mystery of History Volume III
“The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations”
The Mystery of History Volume III offers a deep and meaningful study of world history from the viewpoint of a Christian author. Spanning the Renaissance, the Reformation, world exploration, and some early American history, this exciting volume explores the backdrop to and significance of time-honored contributions found in art, music, literature, science, and philosophy of this rich era from 1455 to 1707. Students will be introduced to famous characters and world changers such as Ivan the Great, Henry VIII, Jeanne D’Albret, Francis Bacon, Pocahontas, Galileo, K’ang-hsi, and many more. Though the reading level of this text is suitable for the average 7th-8th grader, this volume can serve as a Renaissance/Reformation study for any age with modification (and some screening for Younger Students.) It is recommended that students first read Volumes I and II of The Mystery of History, but it is not a prerequisite for enjoying this award-winning book.
Important note! Unlike Volumes I and II, The Mystery of History Volume III has been separated by the publisher into two parts for easier manageability. Part I, the Student Reader, comes as a 441-page colorful hardback containing 84 world history lessons. Part II, the Companion Guide: Curriculum and Student Activities, comes as a 519-page black and white paperback, CD, or download as a separate purchase that is described below. If you enjoyed the curriculum options in Volumes I and II, you don’t want to miss the Companion Guide! Also written by Linda Lacour Hobar, this guide helps students retain what they’re learning and contains all the good stuff that families love about The Mystery of History.
