      Does anyone have a line on a good American History text (high-school
      level) that is Christian oriented?
      I imagine one that deals well with the Mediatorial Kingship is too much
      to ask, but at least one that deals honestly with the Christian
      background and underpinnings of our society?

          Larry,

          Gary DeMar has some Christian American history texts, but I have not
          seen any from a truly reformed perspective. I think Gary's texts paint
          America as a nation firmly grounded in Christianity. I don't think
          they address the pluralism that led us to the attitude that we should
          not only tolerate but embrace all faiths which is the root of
          political 'correctness' and Satan's tool to remove God and
          Christianity from our nation.
          Sometimes I think it is best to use a secular book, and augment with
          *real* history books. That way, they learn what everybody else thinks
          about what happened, and what really happened based on the writings of
          those contemporary to the time.

          My two cents worth,

            Dee Dee, are you aware of the American history textbooks (as well as
            other textbooks) that are available free on-line at
            http://www.puritans.net/curriculum/?

            - Cata #1000 and 1001 - colonial American history

            - Cata #1089 through 1091 - US history


            I would be interested to know what you think of their perspective on
            American history.

            At least the goal was to provide textbooks from a perspective of one
            who agrees with the original Westminster Standards.

              Larry,
               
              I have found Dr C. Gregg Singer's "A Theological Interpretation of American History" to be helpful in terms of broad overview.
