“Crafty men condemn studies, simple men admire them, and wise men use them.” – Francis Bacon
Christendom is the conclusion to Dave Raymond’s comprehensive world history from a Christian worldview. This series covers early church history through the Reformation. Through a combination of stories and moral philosophy, Dave shows how Christianity spread across much of the world changing everything from family life to art to government to science to worship. Learn the stories of redeemed men and women who demonstrate how Christianity changes cultures and left a remarkable legacy for the world. Most importantly, learn that God is sovereign over the kings of earth and has given the nations as an inheritance to the one true King, Jesus Christ.

We love Dave Raymond. His insight is excellent, and the materials are thought provoking. We don’t use all of them, but have enjoyed what we have used.

The lectures are engaging and informative. I like the way the questions require the kids to think and apply rather than just parrot back information.

Dave Raymond’s history courses are fantastic. I really appreciate how he approaches the study of history through a strong biblical worldview; making sense of historical events and how we’ve gotten to where we are through a biblical worldview. As a home educator I also really appreciate how adaptable the program is. I can choose how much work each of my students needs to complete each week based on their age/abilities. My younger students can just watch the videos, read the selections, and discuss while my older students can handle the portfolio and other projects on top of that. It is because of this flexibility and quality of material presented that I often recommend this program to other homeschooling families.

My son is taking Christendom this year after taking Antiquity last year. We were very pleased Dave would teach on this time period and continue the story for him.

I think this is definitely for upper high school. We are definitely learning a lot and it is deep. I appreciate that you gave us the first half of the class, rather than wait until the whole class was available to release it.

My daughter loves how what she is learning in her class directly relates to what we are learning in our Bible studies. She also loves discussing how the class lectures presents the Bible as history and not a story. It has led to many interesting discussions.

I find myself reusing and revisiting chapters in the book myself

It is a helpful course that covers the material well.

We have only started watching the first lesson – it lead to a great discussion about the Bible being a real myth.
