Listen and learn while driving, knitting, or just cuddling while the entire family unravels the mysteries of the ancient world
My children love this history program! They look forward to it every day, and are disappointed that we only do it three times a week. I like the fact that I can teach three different grade levels at once. I also love learning with them, combining world history with Bible history. In my head, they’ve been two different worlds! Thank you for providing such great curriculum for my children!

The Mystery of History Volume II (AD 30 – 1456) picks up where the story of Volume I leaves off – at the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the first lesson I address Acts 1:8 with the promise of the Father to send the Holy Spirit. It is called the Day of Pentecost. From there, the history of the Early Church really begins. It is not an easy history to digest. It was amid trials, persecution, and martyrdom that the magnificent story of Jesus Christ spread.
In Volume II, I expand on the fall of the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages that followed. This text delves into the chivalry of knights and damsels, kings and queens, and the peasants who faithfully served them. Students visit Vikings and villains; castles and crusades; and the poetry of Dante and Chaucer.
Beyond Europe, this volume examines the life of Mohammed and the spread of Islam along with the rise and fall of dynasties in Japan and China. In Africa, Volume II looks at the Coptic (Egyptian) Church and Great Zimbabwe in the south. Students and I unveil the rituals of the Aztecs and the gold of the Incas in Peru. And in two distant corners of the earth, at nearly the same time, the peoples of New Zealand and Greenland emerge into our view of world history.
All along the way, Volume II of The Mystery of History pauses to hear the voice of God as He speaks through missionaries like Columba, St. Patrick, and Cyril. We see the struggles within the church as it grows, expands, and threatens the authority of emperors and kings. I ended this volume with with the tragic death of Joan of Arc, the fall of Constantinople, and the invention of the printing press which spreads the Word of God across Europe.
You won’t find these significant and amazing stories packaged together just anywhere. I’ve done the research for you so that you and your students are free to absorb this history and explore the untold mysteries in between.
The Audio CD Set allows you to listen to author Linda Lacour Hobar read the complete and unabridged text. Students can read along with the author as she narrates the stories or just sit back and listen. Please note the CD’s contain the story lessons only and do not include pretests, activities, quizzes, and so forth. 12 CDs, running time 13 hours, 58 minutes.
We love these audio recordings! My children will lie on the floor listening to the stories, literally for hours. I own the book as well but so far have not used it very much. My children are lower elementary level, and my desire was to give them a good overview of world history. I have tried other history recordings but found the reading to be too dry to keep the children’s attention. Linda Hobar does a fantastic job telling the stories of history in a way that is appealing enough to listen to over and over.
