I grew up as a homeschool student. I learned the interesting history that wasn't diluted and religious references cut out. History was so interesting, then my oldest daughter brought her history books home and they were so dry and boring. Whether a person agrees with any religion, if it is part of history it needs included to get a clear picture of the culture :)

We're a Secular home schooling family but this book was recommended to us. I was a bit wary about a 'special' Christian version of history but my son (15) is enjoying the history and contrary to what is sometimes in the news, this seems objective considering our country's religious roots and the very context of our history.

Goes into great detail about events and background - including the politics behind it all. Easy to read and jam packed with good information. Like I said, we were surprised, very pleasantly so despite what I read from other reviewers here. You can't unwrite history - we have to accept the good and the bad about our past and I think this books presents it all fairly, without 'rewriting' and white washing.

First of all, it's interesting to see that the Worlds History only began 5,000 years ago. All those anthropologists and paleontologists and archeologists must be wrong. God gave scientists the brains to figure out how to make computers, smart phones, and the internet, but no, surely scientists can't accurately date the world.

Second of all, teaching children that dinosaurs "probably lived next to man" is a joke.

Third, it's funny that this text claims Christopher Columbus failed to actually "discover America" because he was Catholic, and "God doesn't recognize Catholics as the one true religion."

Fourth, it claims that the White Protestants were destined to have North America because they had Gods favor over the Natives. "The natives worshiped creation, while the protestants worshipped their Creator." Interesting how "Gods will" and "Destiny" play into objective history lessons. Then it goes on to claim that the Trail of Tears was great, because lots of natives got converted. Yeah, hundreds of thousands of natives got marched to their death, I don't think that equates to "finding Jesus" but hey, whatever it takes to make white people feel better about Genocide.

Fifth, "The KKK was a positive force of social reform." Oh really? I suppose if you consider hanging black people "positive".

Sixth, "The Great Depression was exaggerated propaganda by Communists like John Steinbeck." Oh yeah? My grandfather was alive then and he would tell you otherwise.

Man I could just go on and on. This is not education. This is indoctrination. You know what really tops it all off? Bob Jones' boy Robert Jones Jr. He's the Grand Wizard of North Carolina's KKK.

This book was easy to follow and updated from older books we'd seen. I would recommend this book for United States history.

Dry and boring but required for graduation from high school in my state. Teacher's Edition is nicely laid out and helpful.

I use BJU Press materials for homeschooling often. They have high academic standards and a Christian worldview. They also do not sugarcoat history. The teacher's manuals are well organized and have the same text as the student editions, with helpful ideas for activities and projects, rather than just an answer key.
