TruthQuest Beginnings (Creation/Old Testament/Ancients/Egypt) - A wonderful addition to your homeschool library of history resources!
Ah, the Grand Unveiling of human history…as the Lord God Almighty creates the cosmos, and then us…in His image! The Bible will tell us its story!
- We will explore the thrilling plans God set into motion when He placed man and woman as His servants on this planet, and we will see those plans shape history. Your homeschool students will see that they are next in the chain of God's work on earth! We will also probe some of the great questions of life, such as why God allowed suffering to occur.
- Our focus will be on God revealing Himself to the world through the Israelites and the writing of the Old Testament. We will then meet (and compare) neighboring civilizations which intersected with Israel, such as Sumer, Babylon, Egypt, Assyria, Hittites, Phoenicia, the Canaanites/Philistines, and proto-Greeks. We will even nod to the founding of Rome, but will study Greece and Rome in depth in the TruthQuest History guides dedicated to the deep exploration of those important civilizations.
- Young earth or old earth? We have three simple answers. 1) Remember that in TruthQuest History: Beginnings we are watching God set His plans into motion on earth; we will be awed; we will tackle the biggest questions of life. 2) With that as our mission, we do not also emphasize the scientific issues of fossils, dating, geology, etc., but will assist you in seeking your preferred experts in those fields if you feel led to such study. 3) This guide seeks to exalt the inerrant Word of God as we dazzle your children with the Lord's reality, splendor, rightness, omnipotence, and goodness. Families of varying persuasions on Earth's age can thus unite in enjoying these transcendent explorations!
- Ideally for Grades 5-12, but younger siblings can participate. Includes book recommendations for all ages, where available.
