Omnibus is a Latin term meaning "all encompassing." Completing Omnibus I will provide the student a full credit in Ancient World History I, Doctrine and Theology I, and Ancient Literature I. Combining these disciplines will have students grow in their appreciation of the unity of all knowledge, and all the material is taught through a biblical worldview.
The student text leads the student through the study of the great works from the dawn of time to the fall of Rome, teaching with the emphasis on ideas, not simply information. The Teacher CD-ROM duplicates the student text and inserts answers to all questions, provides grading tools, and much more.
This daily approach includes lesson plans and will make teaching and interacting with the greatest works of Western Civilization both enjoyable and profitable. Students will also apply and further develop their skills in composition, logic and aesthetics. Students completing all six years of Omnibus will have carefully studied every book of the Bible, too.
The student text assigns the readings in the primary and secondary books for each semester.
