Product Description

In Latin, Omnibus means "all encompassing."

The Omnibus Curriculum from Veritas Press is designed to help enlighten, train, and develop young minds through the study of everything important, long-lasting, and true: the ideas, arguments and expression of the Western Canon as expressed in the Great Books.

Omnibus I: Biblical and Classical Conversations is the first in a series of six books that repeat a three year cycle of Ancient, Medieval, and Modern history; the first three are at the logic stage, and the latter three at the Rhetoric stage. Omnibus I is recommended for 7th grade, but parents may wish to preview the material to see whether their student is at a rigorous enough reading and maturity level for the materials covered. The three books in the series may be used in any order for children at that level.

Each volume features lists of both Primary and Secondary books. Primary books are the traditional Great Books, while the Secondary books provide balance in the areas of Theology, History and Literature, such as The Chronicles of Narnia and The Holiness of God. Primary Books to read include: Genesis, Exodus, the Epic of Gilgamesh, The Odyssey, Oresteia, Plutarch's Lives, the Last Days of Socrates, The Early History of Rome, the Aeneid, Julius Caesar, and more. Secondary Books include: the Chronicles of Narnia, Isaiah, Galatians, The Eagle of the Ninth, The Screwtape Letters, the Holiness of God, and additional books of the Bible.

Each chapter covers a Great Book, examining the author, context, significance, main characters, summary and setting, worldview, and providing an in-depth essay analyzing and teaching the important points of the work. Chapters conclude with five sessions that provide questions to consider, optional activities, reading assignments, cultural analysis, biblical analysis, application, summa questions, recitation comprehension questions, lateral thinking, review questions, and evaluation questions.

This book is perfect for additional students in a class, co-op, or family; the teacher's CD-ROM is not included.

Covering literature, history, and theology from a solidly Reformed perspective, editors Douglas Wilson and G. Tyler Fischer weave their understanding of God's providence and sovereignty throughout history. Emphasizing the importance of understanding presuppositionalism, evaluating worldview, and having a Christo-centric understanding of the world, the authors clearly set out the goal of their work:

"We do not learn logic and rhetoric simply to become more competent than our peers. We do it to take dominion in the name of Jesus Christ."

605 pages, indexed, with timeline, hardcover. Grade 7. Classical artwork is included throughout, some of which includes both male and female nudity.

    Although the content of this work is obviously well researched and certainly gives the student a very thorough review of history, Literature and art, I found it to be far too heavy a load for my children. The amount of work they are expected to complete daily is just too much. I think that the questions that relate to the material are pertinent and the contents very engaging. I do not think this book works for students who are already carrying a heavy coarse load. I am using it this year for a Freshman and 8th grader and they both struggle to find the time to complete the suggested daily schedule. I do not like the lack of a teachers book to grade the questions either.
