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 IV: The Ancient World is the fourth 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 IV is recommended for 10th grade (and covers Ancient History at the Rhetoric Stage), 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 Aesop's Fables and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Primary Books to read include: The Iliad, The Bachae, The Hippocratic Oath, Euclid's Elements, Cicero, Metamorphoses, the Gospel of Mark, 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, text analysis, reading assignments, cultural analysis, biblical analysis, application, optional activities, summa questions, writing exercises, and more.

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."

709 pages, indexed, with timeline, hardcover. Grade 10. Classical artwork is included throughout, some of which includes both male and female nudity.
