CHRISTIAN

The Mystery of History is distinctively written from a Christian worldview. Creation-based and standing on the authoritative Word of God, lessons in The Mystery of History are like pieces of a mosaic that reveal a much bigger picture and tell a much larger story. Together, they point toward God’s redemptive plan for mankind through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

“World history is far more than what man has or has not accomplished! From a biblical worldview, history tells us a bigger story, and one that is far grander than man can conceive. His-story is the slow, steady revelation of God to man, and mankind’s mixed response—some bow down to Him, some don’t. But the sovereign plans of the Lord remain the same, as Jesus Christ came ‘to seek and to save that which was lost.’ ” (Luke 19:10)

Linda Lacour Hobar, a native-born Texan holds a bachelor's degree from Baylor University, where she first fell in love with world history. With seventeen years of homeschool experience, seventeen years in ministry groups and church classes, Linda brings a wealth of perspective to world history. As a parent, a missionary, and a teacher, she has a personable writing style that appeals to all ages.


"We are now in year 4.  I love this series and highly recommend it.  I love that the focus is on people in history, not just dates and facts.  Furthermore, I really appreciate that geography is worked into the lessons." - Catherine, Co-op Member
