This text covers the events of modern world history (1600s–2005) from a reformed perspective with an emphasis on European and American culture since the Reformation. Each chapter traces a particular theme within a particular time period. The principal themes include the history of Christianity and philosophy with their results in culture, politics, economics, society, science, and technology. A time line at the beginning of each chapter helps the reader to see the chronological relationships between the events discussed in the text.
Throughout the book particular points of interest, focusing on specific individuals and events, provide further information. Maps and photographs, as well as artwork of a particular period, add to the overall impact of each chapter. Thought-provoking questions given at the end of each chapter will encourage students to think through the Christian implications of the material and its relevance for today's world. In addition, a list of important words and concepts at the end of each chapter will aid the student in focusing on the most significant ideas discussed. Suggested projects also enliven the topics being covered as a particular activity is carried out by an individual or a class. Finally, a reading list is provided to suggest resources for further study.
