Timberdoodle's review
 
An excellent follow-up to A Young Historian's Introduction to Worldview, this series includes four novels, one for each of the chronological periods of history: ancient, medieval, early modern, and modern. Each entails one of the four world views: polytheism, monotheism, naturalism, and pantheism. While these were written for fifth- through eighth-grade students, we strongly encourage you to read them aloud to promote thoughtful family discussions.

Young slave girl serving a Sumerian queen risks an escape.
Rejecting the career of a doctor, this Spanish Jew seeks another dream.
How will this young maid in Paris during the French Revolution survive?
Schoolboy in Japanese-occupied Korea during World War II delves into the murky unknown.

Fits our curriculum well October 10, 2011
Reviewer: Virginia Morgan from Greenville, IL United States  
We use Story of the World a lot around here, and the Engaging Thinkers novels fit right in. Each of the four books matches up to one of the four SOTW books, and each of the novels explores a different worldview. These books are a nice change of pace for us.

This series of books is fabulous! November 24, 2008
Reviewer: Lori H. from Washington  
Wow!  This series of books is fabulous!  After our family finished “A Young Historian's Introduction to World View,” we read these books aloud.  As we turned the pages with anticipation, my children and I were truly “engaged.”

All the novels are filled with twists and turns.  Oh, the excitement!  Oh, the suspense!  The characters encounter danger, and face difficult decisions.  As they act on their worldviews, we see how their circumstances “flesh out,” and have the unique opportunity to understand why the characters do what they do.

By the way, don’t expect the characters in the novels to become Christians—they don’t.  That’s because these books were written for the specific purpose of worldview training.  As such, they initiate family discussion about the importance of worldview, and why people of different worldviews make different choices. 

One of the things our family appreciates most about this series is that the various supporting characters in the books are neither predictable nor stereotypical.  Instead, they are like real people—some are benevolent while others are mean.  Some are faithful to adhere to their religion while others are somewhat unfaithful.

The “Young Historian’s Worldview” study and these four books promoted a great deal of thoughtful discussion around our house, and strengthened our children’s Christian worldview.
