The Story of Civilization Volume 3 (Dramatized Audiobook)

(4 reviews) Write a Review

Children should not just read about history; they should live it. In The Story of Civilization, the stories that have shaped humanity come alive like never before. Author Phillip Campbell uses his historical expertise and storytelling ability together in tandem to present the content in a fresh and thrilling way.  

The Story of Civilization reflects a new emphasis in presenting the history of the world as a thrilling and compelling narrative. Within each chapter, children will encounter short stories that place them directly in the shoes of historical figures, both famous and ordinary, as they live through legendary battles and invasions, philosophical debates, the construction of architectural wonders, the discovery of new inventions and sciences, and the exploration of the world. 

Volume III: The Making of the Modern World continues the journey, picking up where Volume II left off amidst the Renaissance and quickly diving in to the history-altering events of the Reformation. This fracturing of the Church dramatically altered the course of modern Europe and the world at large.

But during the most tumultuous times, God gives us the greatest saints. Children will meet great figures like Sts. Pius V, Thomas More, John Vianney, and Margaret Mary Alacoque, as well as powerful leaders like Napoleon and Kings Henry VIII of England and Louis XIV of France. This volume brings us through present-day Europe, showing us the effects of two world wars and how the Church responded to these changing times.

    Well done and easy to fit in our homeschool schedule. It lends itself to a wide range of ages and we often listen to the lessons as a group. The stories make history come alive. The Activity Book that accompanies the series has a good variety and we enjoy picking and choosing from their suggestions.

    Interesting, relevant, informative, and Catholic! We love listening to the audiobook versions of this series in the car on road trips. My 4 year old fought sleep on the way home from a camping trip just to hear the end of each chapter.
