Fantastic, Comprehensive American History Course Using a Biblical Worldview
Review by Kelly Ann
Where was this book when I was in high school? History wasn't my favorite subject growing up, but I've developed a true fondness to it as I got older after doing my own reading and studying up on it. This text would have been a treasure to have when I was a teen, because it doesn't get any more engaging than this. I really appreciate that the basis of this course uses a Biblical worldview while teaching about the people and important events throughout American history.

Teens will be begin the course by learning about the Natives of the New World, from there they will be taken on a journey to learn all about the birth of our nation including early colonists, patriotism, the abolishment of slavery, as well as the world power that the United States has now come to be. Major battles/wars (Revolutionary War, Civil War, etc.) and other significant events (creation of the U.S. Constitution, democracy, etc.) that helped change and mold the course of American history are all covered in this text. You are really getting the whole package with this course and what's more, the content is extremely engaging, which makes a subject that some may typically find boring, actually fun and exciting.

Extra features in the book include a Forms of Government glossary, an American History glossary, a chart that shares comparative worldviews when it comes to religion and other cultures, as well as descriptions of the eight major worldviews (Naturalism, Theism, Realism, etc.). I personally appreciate that the revised version also goes all the way up to present day (even mentioning Present Trump and Covid-19), so it really is as up to date as you can get in a history textbook. In addition to the engaging content throughout each lesson, the book contains pages upon pages of beautiful photography and interesting stories to read. The lessons are very comprehensive, so teens are going to receive a well-rounded education in U.S. history upon completion of this course.
Great fur modern students
Review by nicole
Modern high school students have grown up with technology and thus textbooks generally bore them to tears. This textbook understands that and engages them by having full color pictures larger font, great side pieces and a good layout! Even questions posed from a Christian viewpoint allow for discussion even by those wanting secular textbooks. The accompanying parent book allows you to have your test and exam and have all the answers that hand for easy grading it's a great combination and that one that we love for modern history course!
A Wonderful US History Program
Review by Kelly
The perfect addition to your history program, this revised US History book walks your student through the short but complex history of our country in a way that is easy to understand and engaging. Filled with vivid images, a continuous timeline, and learning objectives by chapter, your student can easily work through this program independently.
