Product Description

Mystery of History Volume IV is the last and final volume of the Mystery of History series from Bright Ideas Press! Covering 1708 to 2014, it begins with Bach and Handel, brings the reader through multiple "wars of independence" as well as many "wars of ideologies" between Marxism, Darwinism, Fascism, and the Cold War. World War I and II bring the reader to more modern day conflicts, including a collapsed Soviet Union, a divided Korea, tension in the Middle East, and an ongoing War on Terror.

However, in addition to studying the violence of this era, the artists, inventors, writers, and humanitarians who contributed toward the "soul" of mankind over the last three centuries are also integrated. A world history text, Mystery of History 4 does cover important events in American history (though it cannot stand alone as an American history course), including the American Revolution, the War Between the States, the War in Vietnam, and the Civil Rights movement.

The last and final chapter looks at what is to come as outlined in the Book of Revelation. This section does not follow any single view of eschatology, but it will take students to the final chapters of Revelation, and its picture of the new heaven and new earth.

Volume IV is a hardcover volume that contains all of the lessons students are to read. It also contains the Companion Guide on CD-ROM in the back of the book. This companion guide contains pretests, activities, quizzes, timeline directions, mapping exercises, and literature suggestions.

607 pages, hardcover. High School content; with parental modifications of content may be used for younger grades.

    We have done mystery of history for years. I hate the cd. Takes up way too much time printing. Please make a companion guide in book form.

    i love history and love seeing the dots connected. There are so many things goingg on at a given time that most history books wont tell you about because they only want to focus on one specific aspect. We are only in the 8th lesson tomorrow and i am thoroughly enjoying teaching this subject.

    This book will fascinate your child and propel them forward in a love for history! I cannot speak highly enough about this history spine. My child now has a love for history and wants every history book to have bold, beautiful pictures and be written in friendly, narrative tones. THANK YOU for this publication! Highly Recommend!

    We love Mystery of History and this book is excellent. However, putting all the assignments and extras on a DVD instead of having a companion book has been very frustrating. We are constantly printing, and it makes it more difficult for me to give assignments/grade my son's work. It really ends up being an added expense due to all the ink we use printing. The companion book they used to sell was much more helpful and easier to use for us. I am sorry to give it a low rating because I love the book, but I have been to the website and cannot find another way to give feedback on just the switch to DVD.
