The Navigating History Project team pleased to announce the release of a new curriculum designed to teach history, geography, and Christian worldview! Three DVDs, a 220 page book in full color, and 40" of vibrant timeline covering 4500 years of Egyptian history are all shipping now. Perfect for students, whole families, history buffs, or anyone who wants to master the ideas that have mastered the ancient and modern world.
On February 11th, 2011, less than two months after the Navigating History team members left the country, Hosni Mubarak has handed full control of Egypt over to the military. Read Isaac Botkin's analysis of how the riots came about, and what they mean for the future.
In this final broadcast, the members of the Egypt team recap the most important lessons of their journey.
Isaac explains just how far the team is willing to go to ensure safety first.
David Noor’s forefathers are Egyptian; he probably had ancestors living there during the time of the Pharaohs. That’s amazing. But have you ever stopped to think that YOU had progenitors living during the time of the Pharaohs?
Reporting from the homeland of shining armor, Chris explains how the concept of chivalry is unknown to both Islam and egalitarianism.
A civilization is built on the self-control of men. When men are able to refuse to obey their childish whims, their energy is freed to undertake greater things: invest, build, accumulate knowledge, create economic and political organizations, innovate, explore, discover. A man who cannot control his lust is unlikely to have the long-term commitment necessary to build a civilization.
In the first post-trip Q&A session by the Navigating History team, Isaac, David, Steven, and Chris discuss their adventures and what they discovered on their journey.
Isaac and Chris demonstrate two different ways to read hieroglyphs--correctly and incorrectly. Admittedly, the incorrect way is more fun.
Egypt’s hieroglyphs make up one the most beautiful and mysterious writing systems of the ancient world. But for all their power to inspire awe and excite curiosity, their actual readability was limited -- on purpose.
Daihatsu...the tie that binds. David, Isaac, and Chris notice a recurring symbol that may indicate all is not as it seems.
The team explores the British Museum, observes Islamic influence and the decline of Christian culture in the UK, and recaps the experiences and lessons of their journey.
