Congratulations to Melinda for winning a subscription to Navigating History: Egypt.
From the Navigating History team:
“Navigating History: Egypt is a 6-episode adventure travel series designed to teach history, geography, current affairs, and worldview analysis from a Biblical perspective. The series will focus on the events and influences that shape nations, illustrating that ideas have consequences and that culture is never neutral.”
“The tour will begin in Egypt, the oldest continuous culture in the world. Egypt has been influenced at various times in its history by the four dominant ideologies of the globe–ancient paganism, Greco-Roman humanism, the Christian Church, and the rule of Islam–making it an ideal place to show that culture is religion externalized. Along the way, the team will be providing book recommendations and pointers for further study. Unlike television shows where hosts are shot and edited by invisible camera teams, every aspect of production and travel will be visible to those watching from home, as every member of the team serves both on-camera and as production staff.”
“Episodes and live Q&A sessions with the team will be aired at 8:00pm CST every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, starting November 29 and continuing through December 17. Subscribers who join the three-week journey will have access to web site resources and updates. The tight deadlines for each of the episodes will add another element of drama for the viewers anticipating the next installment of the adventure. With live timers and GPS tracking, subscribers can monitor the team as they move between destinations and race against deadlines.”
Each lesson which students learn about Egypt will help them face the challenges of the questions facing young Americans today — in America. We want students to be sharp analysts of America’s political issues, church issues, and family culture issues. Egyptian culture illustrates the consequences of modern challenges with alarming clarity. — Isaac Botkin, team leader
What we want to do is show students how to use unchanging theological truth to assess every aspect of culture and history . . . past, present, and future. — David Noor
The series is targeted to ages 12 and up, but younger children will certainly be able to benefit from much of the information. Episodes will be broadcast at 9EST on Monday, Wednesday and Friday beginning on November 29. All episodes will be available online to view later if that works better for your family.
Family subscriptions are available for $49.95 and include book recommendations, tips on how to use the series as an ancient history unit study, reviews and thoughts about the equipment used in the project and more.
