I Corinthians 10:1-13 gives us the primary reason for the necessity of the study of history, admonition. The stories of the Old Testament are recorded so that New Testament believers will have examples to follow and others to avoid. In the modern era we have a vast wealth of recorded history to draw from as we seek to navigate the uncertain waters of the future. We seek to trace God’s providence and His redemptive plan throughout our study of history as well as follow the classical model of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. In that light we approach the study of history in a linear fashion as we believe human history has a definite starting point, Creation, and is heading to a definite and ultimate end point determined by the sovereign Creator.


Grammar level history, using Veritas Press materials, traverses the pages of history from the Old Testament to Modern U.S history stopping along the way at Ancient Egypt, the New Testament, Greece, Rome, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Reformation, and the explorers of North America. There is a heavy emphasis on learning the dates, people, and places (the grammar) involved in the major events of human history. Students will be shown God’s hand throughout the process as He works through men and nations. Primarily they will build a foundational level of knowledge necessary to progress to the higher levels of understanding and application found in the logic and rhetoric stages of classical learning.
