I learned so much reading these books, and think that they're a must-have for every homeschooling family.
Danika does such a great job weaving Biblical truth with the historical narrative, showing God's sovereign hand and how He uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Even so, the sin problem of slavery and the tragedy that has occurred (and still occurs today) at the hands of many, even Christians, is not glossed over, and I appreciated this unbiased writing. So many great learning and discussion points that will be great to go over with my kids as we study this in our homeschool.
What an amazing trio of books. History is a powerful teacher and this series points gloriously to God's sovereignty and how he used ordinary people to push back against what is wrong. I loved the balanced approach that didn't excuse sin, but rather exposed its deceptive and contagious nature. One of our favorite lines is how "sin begets more sin." That one gave us so much to ponder and discuss as we look at where we are at in today's world... Hence why history can provide such provocative lessons. Thanks Danika, for this wonderful series.
Thank you, Danika, for sharing true, unbiased history and doing so with a Christian worldview and making it relevant to our children today!
