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 VI: The Modern World is the last 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 VI is recommended for 12th 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. Primary Books to read include: Paradise Lost, Robinson Crusoe, The Wealth of Nations, Deuteronomy, Moby-Dick, Huckleberry Finn, The Sun Also Rises, Ecclesiastes, the Stranger, and more. Secondary Books include: Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, Hamlet, Common Sense, The Red Badge of Courage, Leaves of Grass, The Jungle, Matthew, 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."

784 pages, indexed, with timeline, hardcover. Grade 12. Classical artwork is included throughout, some of which includes both male and female nudity.

    I have previously done Omnibus 1, 2, and 3. All of those courses were amazing and surpassed my expectations. This new course has not ceased to amaze me. With more questions, more information, and a new essays about various concepts important to everyday life this has it all. The reading list is amazing as well, including some of the greatest works of modern literature such as Brave New World, Citizen Soldiers, and the Sun Also Rises. Not only does it include amazing literature but you will also read and study in depth various books of the Bible. I highly recommend this.
