About the Omnibus Curriculum

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.

This 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. The History Transition Guides are available to help prepare younger students to jump into a Great Books-based program like Omnibus.

The recommended schedule is:
The History Transition Guide: Grade 6
Omnibus I: Grade 7
Omnibus II: Grade 8
Omnibus III: Grade 9
Omnibus IV: Grade 10
Omnibus V: Grade 11
Omnibus VI: Grade 12

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.

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.

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.

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, 2nd Edition 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, such as A Midsummer's Night Dream and The Two Towers. Primary Books to read include: Paradise Lost, Leviathan, Emma, Wealth of Nations, Moby Dick, Huckleberry Finn, Robinson Crusoe, Pensees, the Portable Enlightenment Reader, Origin and Principles of the American Revolution, Democracy in America, Notes from the Underground, Battel Cry of Freedom, Beyond Good and Evil, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Sun Also Rises, Citizen Soldiers, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, The Stranger, I have a Dream & Letter from a Birmingham Jail, and Brave New World . Secondary Books include: On Christian Doctrine, Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, Hamlet, Common Sense, John Adams, Red Badge of Courage, Self-Reliance, Civil Disobedience, Leaves of Grass, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Interpretation of Dreams, The Guns of August, That Hideous Strength, Heart of Darkness, The Jungle, 50 Great Short Stories, and Poetry of T.S. Eliot.

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 also includes six essays that expose students to other disciplies to consider for courses of study in college or in their careers.

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 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."
