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 III: Reformation to the Present is the third 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 3 is recommended for grades 7 & up; if students are progressing in order starting with Omnibus I in 7th grade, this book will cover 9th grade. 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 Frankenstein and Pride and Prejudice. Primary Books to read include: The Westminster Confession of Faith, Pilgrim's Progress, A Tale of Two Cities, the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers; Slave Narratives; the Communist Manifesto, 1984, the books of Philemon, John, Daniel, and more. Secondary Books include: Foxe's Book of Martyrs, Gulliver's Travels, The Pit and the Pendulum, the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Little Women, Animal farm, Death of a Salesman, 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.

The included Teacher's Guide CD-ROM duplicates the student text and inserts answers to all questions, provides grading tools, midterms and finals, session-by-session lesson plans, and more.

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."

617 pages, indexed, with timeline, hardcover. Grades 7-9.
