As is their custom, the d’Aulaires have thoroughly researched their subject in order to provide the most historically accurate account of the life of the man Samuel Eliot Morrison called “the greatest mariner that ever lived.” In their pursuit, the d’Aulaires traveled to Spain, Portugal, and the Caribbean Islands to research original documents on the life of Columbus. Their text reflects many little- known facts not generally included in the typical biographies of Columbus. Readers will learn that it was the saga of Leif Erickson that was one of the inspirations for Columbus’s voyage to the East. They will also learn that Columbus was such a skilled astronomer that he knew the exact date when the next eclipse of the moon was and used that knowledge to his advantage. They will also learn that though “Columbus was a great man, he was not a modest man. He wanted too much, and so he did not get enough” (54). This book is lavishly illustrated with the d’Aulaire’s detailed lithographs in four colors. 54pg

Have we been brainwashed about our roots? Read evidence that the writings in Genesis are more ancient than historians admit. Adam, Noah, and other eyewitnesses actually wrote these records for us. This unique course, based on Genesis 1-11, integrates the linguistic evidence and other fields of knowledge with the Bible. It clears up the fuzziness of history before Egypt. Through literature and art it reveals startling insights about giants, dragons, cherubim and other beings that the early people knew but we have lost in myth. Gives true answers to age-old questions of God, man, and the world — in order to develop the right worldview, which leads to right thinking. Includes maps, charts, timeline and full-color reproductions of ancient art. Six units with flexible uses for teens, almost teens, and the rest of the family.
“Thus says the LORD: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls”(Jer. 6:16).
Christianity is a faith in love with history. God took on human flesh and dwelt among us. The Spirit carried that divine work over the centuries, providing courage and maturity even amid our imperfections.
Christians find their true family line not through tribes and ethnic blood but in the bond of faithfulness and shed blood that has united our family for millennia. We too often view Church history as the story of obscure aliens instead of the lives of brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers.
In this collection of forty-six brief biographies for children, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and C.S. Lewis. Through them we can begin to enjoy the old paths and find rest for our souls.
This 1828 facsimile reprint of the first American Dictionary documents the quality of Biblical education which raised up American statesmen capable of forming our Constitutional Republic. Webster traced roots in twenty-six languages, and gives examples from classical literature and the Bible. Comprehensive introductions are presented for language and grammar. It has been described by one Christian scholar as “the greatest reprint of the twentieth century.” The added biography by Rosalie Slater, “Noah Webster, Founding Father of American Scholarship and Education,” describes his contribution to many fields and records his conversion to Christ.
A rare blending of the Bible account with information from sciences, archaeology, ancient traditions and other sources. Reads as easily as a story, yet teaches actual history.

Gives insights into the world before the great flood and into the rebuilding of civilization afterward. Shows the sources of all pagan beliefs. Used as supplementary reading with the course above on Genesis. For the whole family.
In Year 3, we study US History in order to understand the foundations of our American Republic.
We emphasize the founding principles of the United States.
We begin with the early colonies and finish the year with the Civil War.
Principles of the American Republic are woven throughout the lessons. The establishment of self-government and the character of the early colonists as the foundation for a Republic is emphasized. We look at the role of preachers and pastors in birthing the Declaration of Independence; and study the principles within. Students will become familiar with the Founding Father’s character, sacrifice and conviction and the role of the Bible in the Constitution. The expansion of the nation from sea to shining sea and invention and innovation exemplify how liberty allows men to pursue their interests. Lastly, the conflicts and upheaval leading to the Civil War and legislation that will affect generations of Americans to this present day.
Beginning with the Christian Founding, we study the principles of liberty and answer questions like;
Why is America the most free and prosperous nation that has ever been founded?
What was the source of America’s greatness?
Who was highly influential in the cultivation of liberty?
What rights are outlined in the Declaration of Independence?
What are our God-given rights and duties?
What is the individual’s responsibility with regards to self-government?
What is the role of the Constitution?
What are the key areas of American expansion?
What does liberty give birth to?
How did the Founding Fathers view slavery?
How an individual answers these questions is the framework in which he or she reasons and relates to the world and life events.
Pathway to Liberty is a holistic curriculum covering Bible, history, character, writing, vocabulary and geography.
Join us in learning about the principles of liberty and building a solid foundation from which your students can build on for a lifetime.
Anna Siviter, by weaving the rich tapestry of the ancient Persian court as a backdrop for the story of Artaxerxes’ noble cup bearer, allows us to grasp the deep significance of Nehemiah’s devotion to God, to Jerusalem and to his people.
