Streams of Civilization

All > Curriculum > FULL CURRICULUM - ALL SUBJECTS > Christian Liberty Curriculum > Streams of Civilization

World History is presented from a Christian perspective in this 2-volume set from Christian Liberty Press. Volume 1 provides a comprehensive overview from Creation through about 1620. Volume 2 takes us from there to the present. In addition to the text, the book includes ample illustrations and maps, as well as review questions, vocabulary drills, even interesting projects. Volume 2, in addition to more challenging reading, increases the emphasis on church history in relation to secular history. It offers no apologies for the strong conservative opinions expressed. Teacher guide for Vol. 1 contains some teaching helps in addition to answers; Vol. 2 guide is only an answer key.

Streams of Civilization has been used by homeschoolers and Christian schools for a long time, and with good reason. It is still one of the few world history texts that incorporate a Biblical worldview, creation science, and church history. These texts do not shy away from the positive contributions made by Christians throughout the centuries. Students will acquire an understanding of the scope of human events from the creation of man to current news headlines. Major world cultures, religions and their development are explained with the aid of maps, timelines, and graphics. Since this is a snapshot view of civilization, I recommend spending more time on the chapters of greatest interest to your student. Use the text alongside of some well-chosen biographies, historical fiction, films, picture books, etc. Have the student write brief summaries in a composition notebook. Encourage them to share verbally what they are learning. It makes good dinner conversation, and helps them remember and apply to their lives what they are reading.

If history is destined to repeat itself when we do not learn from its lessons, then this is one valuable course of study for future generations. Volume 1 covers Creation to 1600 AD, Volume 2 covers the Reformation to the present age. Recommended for 14 and up. Note: Karen says the Teacher's Manuals were written for the classroom and appear to contain unnecessary busy-work for the home teacher.
