Chronological Be it a lesson from Germany, China, Zimbabwe, or Iceland, the author leads students to all corners of the globe in the order that major events occurred there. For example, students will discover that soon after St. Patrick delivered the gospel to Ireland, the Western Roman Empire fell in Europe; Mohammed introduced Islam to the world about a decade after King Arthur rode with his knights; the Vikings ravaged parts of Europe while the Maori settled New Zealand; and Joan of Arc tragically burned at the stake while the Inkas (Incas) were building their golden empire in South America!

But more than that, lessons in The Mystery of History are like fragments of a mosaic that, when put together, reveal a much bigger picture and tell a much larger story---one that points toward God's plan for mankind.
