Journeys through the Ancient World is the continuation in the Trail Guide to Learning Series. Paths, the first three levels of this curriculum, establishes a firm foundation of our American heritage at the elementary level. Now, Journeys leads students through the fascinating study of World History at the Middle School Level.

In embarking on their Journeys through the Ancient World your students will be transported into four important early civilizations—Egypt, Israel, Greece, and Rome. The Bible is an essential part of this study, as both an historical and a literary text. And this is completely understandable, since it is one of very few eyewitness accounts of history unfolding at a time before written records were common.

This unique look at ancient civilizations is presented from the perspective of the Israelites with a Hebraic world view as opposed to a classical view through the eyes of the Greeks. Your family will develop a sound foundation of Biblical thought which results in recognizing and avoiding secular worldview beliefs that have become so pervasive in our modern culture.

This one-year curriculum is presented in 4-nine week units:

  • Patriarchs and Egypt

  • Greece
  • Rome
