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 II: Church Fathers through the Reformation is the second 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 II is recommended for 8th 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 A Midsummer's Night Dreamand The Two Towers. Primary Books to read include: Confessions, The Creeds, The Ecclesiastical History, Beowulf, The History of the Kings of Britain, Macbeth, The Divine Comedy, The Canterbury Tales, and more. Secondary Books include: The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Gospel of John, Robin Hood, Ephesians, and more.

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."

500 pages, indexed, with timeline, hardcover. Grade 8. Classical artwork is included throughout, some of which includes both male and female nudity.

    I couldn't say that my teenage son is enjoying Omnibus but it is good for him and his growth as a

    Christian. It is a lot of work but the results are obvious. Not for the faint hearted, the students have to think and engage with the books covered. This can be quite a challenge to public school educated parents who are sometimes scrambling for answers to some of the 'big questions' of God and life. It really stretches everyone!
