    My 10 year old home schooled 6th grader and I have already covered 19 lessons. Would have covered the book if we did not have 6 other subjects to cover. Linda Lacour Hobar has the best style of writing I have seen in history textbook. As a teacher of mathematics with three grown daughters who are all engineers like their father, I can tell you I NEVER cared for studying history for more than I had to in order to get out of school. When I chose this text for my granddaughter, it was because she needed to study something in Social Studies and the cover looked sharp. We started on the second day of class this year reading on page xi. We read every word through Lesson 1 and both of us wanted to keep on going. We are on page 99 having completed 19 Lessons in 3 weeks. She still wants to keep going at this pace because it is just that exciting.

    This book is set out nicely with interesting stories so children get an overview of history from a Christian perspective. You can add in as many living books as suits your family with this curriculum. If you want to bolster it up you can use the accompanying quizzes and craft ideas. If you find the quizzes and crafts overwhelming you can just get your children to keep a notebook and write something on each topic. You could use it in a relaxed way for primary school with easier living books and more intensively (more detailed living books on each topic with the quizzes) in high school. We plan to use our Amy Pac Timeline figures in conjunction with note booking for primary school.

    We love the classical approach to learning history and learning about the historical events of Christianity. This is definitely important to a Christian family and should be brought out in all history books as well. I would highly recommend The Renaissance, Reformation, and the Growth of the Nation (1455-1707) Student Reader, Volume 3 to families who want a Christian base education.

    I would not reccomend this book.

    I am an 8th grade home school student, and I am about fed up with this book. I wish I could give this book stars in the negative. In theory, A Christian-based history book is a great idea. There are great Christian history books. However, this is not one of them. For one, the author writes extremely biased in some chapters. I am not Catholic, but I was disturbed by how she painted the Roman Catholic Church. Yes, the Roman Catholic Church did some bad things, but it was run by humans. Humans are not perfect. Protestants also did some bad things too, though, which she doesn't seem to mention as much. I hate how judgmental she is. As Christians, we are taught not to judge, and it really has made me sad reading such a judgmental "Christian" history book. She also writes about how certain people were great Christians based on things they have said or written. From personal experience, I have learned that you cannot judge a person solely by the things they say or write. She has no idea what these people were actually like who lived hundreds of years ago. To me, it seems very insincere. Also, she writes about figures as she sees them. It appears that she researches, then decides what type of person she thinks someone is, and includes only the facts that support that belief, rather than include enough information for someone to decide for himself what he thinks of this historical person. An example of this would be Oliver Cromwell. From what she writes, he appears a very great, religious man, who might have made a few bad decisions. After reading this chapter, my history teacher told us that he was actually a very cruel person. It did not seem that way to me at all after reading the chapter. I would not recommend this book. It has been very frustrating, and I cannot wait to be done with it! Please, do not buy this book for your child. It is not beneficial in building his/her faith, and it does not teach with a Christian attitude.

    God Bless! (And pick a different book ;)

    My middle school daughter loves this book! There is just enough information to pique her interest and send her searching the library for more books to add to her knowledge. The pictures are beautiful and we love the author's conversational tone.
