Association Reviews

  • "If you are looking for a new history curriculum for your family to use, I highly recommend The Mystery of History by Linda Hobar. Each volume includes coursework for one school year. The author aptly describes her work as “A Classical, Chronological, Complete Christian World History for All Ages.”"

  • "Volume III is a gorgeous edition to The Mystery of History family. A full-color, glossy hardback with 439 pages, this is a whole different style of book than the previous volumes. There is nothing like seeing Renaissance art in all its vivid beauty."

  • "I wish The Mystery Of History had been written fifteen or twenty years earlier so that my own family could have used it. It is so much more thorough than anything we ever studied in our years of homeschooling."
