Softcover, 330 pgs, 9780964380325

If you've never read a Genevieve Foster book, then you're in for a treat. Foster has this unique approach of teaching history horizontally - not just focusing on one character in one location, but looking at all the events and characters of a particular time period all over the world, and examining how they are all interconnected. So, when studying Augustus Caesar, Foster weaves a story of the world around her central character; including stories of scientific discovery and invention, music, literature, art, and religion. She has a keen intuition for stories that will especially delight and amuse her youthful audience.

"Mere Christianity" is the most popular of C. S.
