Re: [Covenanted Reformation] Re: Homeschool Text Needed
- Though not written from a Christian perspective, you might want to consider including something like the 4th volume of Winston Churchill's History of the English Speaking Peoples. The 4th volume covers much about America and from the English perspective.Though recently tainted by his Auburn Avenue Theology association, Steve Wilkins' tape and outline series America, the First 350 Years, does a good job of showing the colonial period from a Calvinistic perspective. This consists of an outline of the material and a set of taped lectures.Glenn----- Original Message -----From: nocost2greatSent: Monday, April 09, 2007 6:43 AMSubject: [Covenanted Reformation] Re: Homeschool Text Needed

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,
