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, 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 such as The Lost World and Desiring God provide balance in the areas of Theology, History and Literature. Level IV Primary Book assignments (books not included) cover: The Iliad, The Bacchae, Annals of Imperial Rome, Proverbs, Job, and Metamorphoses.

Great Book chapters examine the author, context, significance, main characters, summary and setting, worldview, and provide an in-depth essay analyzing and teaching the important points of the work. Essays conclude with ten sessions that provide questions to consider, recitations, discussion, student-led discussion, writing activities, optional activities, reading assignments, cultural analysis, biblical analysis, application, summa questions, and comprehension questions. Interspersed essays on elements of culture from a Christian worldview examine philosophy, politics, anthropology, and law.

The included Teacher's Guide CD-ROM duplicates the student text and inserts answers to all questions, provides grading tools, and more.

Covering literature, history, and theology from a solidly Reformed perspective, editors Douglas Wilson, Gene Edward Veith, and G. Tyler Fischer weave their understanding of God's providence and sovereignty throughout history. Emphasizing the importance of understanding pres uppositionalism, 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."

710 pages, indexed, with timeline, hardcover. Grade 10. Photos of classical architecture, portraiture, and classical artwork is included throughout, some of which may include nudity. Books are not included and must be obtained separately.
