Timberdoodle's review
Holes in Your History?
What is the first thing many parents say after reading a few chapters of The Story of the World? "Help! I don't know this stuff." Don't panic. First of all, you are in good company; most of us have an abysmal history education. Second, just learning along with your child is absolutely acceptable. But if you or your older child find yourselves bothered by significant holes in your understanding of history, then consider the latest title from the author of The Story of the World.

A Masterful Retelling of Ancient History
Written in a friendly and highly readable manner, The History of the Ancient World is at once engaging and enlightening. Maps and timelines help you grasp the whens and wheres of history, while the stories cement who, what, and why. Not only will you walk away with a big picture of history, but you will also develop a feel for the people of each culture.

Note to our more conservative customers: This book, though authored by a Christian, is written from a history scholar's perspective, not that of a theologian. In other words she gives the Bible a fair hearing, but places it alongside any other historical document, without distinction. Read The History of the Ancient World with that in mind and you will find that there is a wealth of information in this volume about the peoples, nations, cultures, and wars of the Bible.
