The History of Religious Liberty Set
A detailed account of the troubled history of religious persecution between the 16th and 18th centuries that occurred in England is presented, and then undertakes a thorough exploration of the ideas and the sacrifices that helped to create religious liberty in America.
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has five easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading and worksheets. Worksheets and quizzes are perforated and three-hole punched — materials are easy to tear out, hand out, grade, and store. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials as you need to in order to best work within your educational program. Worksheets can be alternately used as class discussion questions rather than short answer.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the course materials. Quizzes to demonstrate understanding of the material and critical thinking skills are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. Younger students may be given the option of taking open-book quizzes.
Daily Schedule: Includes a suggested daily schedule for the course. Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling for the educator.
Quizzes/Exams: The course includes six quizzes – one after every four chapters – as well as a final exam in the form of an essay question. Answer keys are included for both worksheets and testing materials.
Time: Approximately 30 to 40 minutes per lesson, depending on allowed discussion time
Compared to other countries in the world, Americans enjoy an astonishing range of freedoms, including a broad range of rights related to religion. With Christian churches dotting almost every corner in communities across the nation, it is hard to remember there was a time when religious liberty was a distant dream and a cause for which many died.
In a thorough review of this troubled history, you will be introduced to the ideas and sacrifices that kept the dream of religious liberty alive until it became a powerful cornerstone of a fledging nation. While some leaders of the faith are revealed as religious persecutors, it is important to understand the political and social context of these events because it lays the foundation for the ideals and protections now found in the U.S. Constitution. The History of Religious Liberty:
- Reveals why the popular idea of the Enlightenment being at the heart of the Bill of Rights is simply wrong
- Takes an unflinching look at persecution of the Church as part of a well-researched survey of critical historical points
- Reflects the reaction of everyday Christians to the repressive forces of tyranny echoing in the struggle for religious liberty globally today.
These compelling stories of both well-known and obscure martyrs of the faith each help to advance the true birth of religious freedom. Their simple and courageous acts of defiance against tyranny and intolerance stand as a testament to the truth that God is the ultimate author of liberty.
