My children enjoy this series for history. I have purchased all the books on CD as well and we listen to them while we are driving. It is a broad look at history of the entire world without prejudice for religion or atheism.
I am another disappointed customer. I do not believe in revisionist Christian history which claims to know why God did everything. Nor do I believe America is a promised land. So I thought I might find a balance here. I knew the text was written neutral, but from a Christian author, and that Susan Wise Bauer is considered to be a scholar, and is a professor at William and Mary, a top tier university. However I must agree that the Biblical stories are jumbled up, casting doubts in my children's minds. Benjamin is a good example. Additionally, I did not find it as engaging as others seem to have done. With an older child, strong in his or her faith, it would be fine. But I am not thrilled to read this to my 5 and 7 year olds.
