Inspired by #ChristianAltFacts, I decided to pull out this old Abeka World History book. If you're interested in knowing what Christian homeschools and private schools are teaching children, follow along.
Here's what Abeka teaches Christian students about colonialism: that it "benefited" Africans and Asians. That's it. No mention of slavery or genocide. #ChristianAltFacts
This is a classic teaching of Christian homeschools and private schools: that the Holocaust is "Evolution's legacy." #ChristianAltFacts
Abeka teaches Christian students that environmentalism is part of a world government conspiracy to enact socialist totalitarianism. #ChristianAltFacts
For Christian homeschools and private schools, the Book of Genesis is "the most reliable source for what we need to know about the beginning of world history." #ChristianAltFacts
Abeka doesn't hide its anti-Catholic bent, arguing that the Catholic Church has become "infiltrated by Communists" who promote "revolution and violence." #ChristianAltFacts
Here's what Christian students are taught by Abeka about the Vietnam War: that opposition to it came from "unpatriotic" Americans who "betrayed" the cause of freedom. #ChristianAltFacts
Oh this one is golden: we dropped the atomic bombs on Japan to "save the lives" of "countless Japanese." #ChristianAltFacts
Abeka teaches Christian students to be wary of politicians who present as "friends of the poor." This is a common theme in the book, intended to imply that capitalism is godly and socialism and Communism are evil. #ChristianAltFacts
Jesus is the center of world history. The Gospels are "the most important texts for the student of history." #ChristianAltFacts
"True Christians" are "good citizens." And "Government should never discourage Christianity." #ChristianAltFacts
Here's what Christian students are taught about Charles Darwin. It's... a mess. #ChristianAltFacts
This is all that Abeka teaches about slavery in the U.S. #ChristianAltFacts
Alright, my phone is about to die, so I gotta stop now. Thanks for everyone who followed along. What do you want me to review next?
Here's my review of David Noebel's "The Battle for Truth":
For those that requested it specifically, here's a review of Mary Pride's "The Way Home":

"The Battle for Truth" appears to be the winner! Haven't read this book in forever so this will be fun.
Alright, everyone, buckle up. We're gonna take a look at David Noebel's classic on worldview studies, "The Battle for Truth: Defending the Christian Worldview in the Marketplace of Ideas." Noebel directed Summit Ministries, which taught apologetics to children. #ChristianAltFacts
Noebel begins the book with an ominous declaration: that there is a great Civil War raging in the U.S. today. A war between the forces of light (the Christian worldview) and the forces of darkness (the Humanist worldview). The Humanist worldview has 3 branches. #ChristianAltFacts
