Have you wanted to get a grasp on world history from a Biblical point of view? Now you can! Big Book of History is targeted for young learners, ages 7-12. However, my copy seems to draw “children” of all ages.
Tracking 4 themes from creation to the election of President Barack Obama, this up to date timeline follows Biblical / Christianity, World Events, Civilizations / Empires and Inventions / Technology.
What is clever is how creative the designers have been with the layout. As a graphic artist, author, pastor and university professor, I am amazed at how much information is packed into this fluid, 15-foot long history chart! One glance and you are captured by its beauty. Upon closer inspection, you are intrigued by the clarity it brings to history.
While this is a MUST acquisition for every parent, I highly recommend this for all teachers of God’s Word and World History. Such a tool is a valuable reference to everyday learning. There is also a Teachers Study Guide available.
Big Book of History has just won the CBA Retailer’s Choice Award for 2012 in the category of Christian Education. You can read about it here.
