Is there already a correlation of WTM Great Books/HotAW w/ Christian resources somewhere?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to correlate a 4-yr. WTM Great Books study with Christian Bible study, doctrine, and theology.  Before I unwittingly reinvent the wheel, has this already been done?


I'd love to make a plan that completely follows TWTM, utilizes SWB's HotAW or Western Civilization (Spielvogel) as the main history thread, but adds something to link Biblical history to it and Bible study (with lessons, commentary, not just a reading list of chapters/verses) as well, such as any of the following:  Just the Bible section of MFW AHL (covers O.T. only, but same type of plan could be created for N.T.), TruthQuest guides, MOH, BP Companion, 100 Most Important Events in Christian History, Trial & Triumph, Foxe's Book of Martyrs, Greenleaf Guides, History Lives Chronicles, etc.

I realize TOG, MFW, VP, and BP all do this (to various extents), but I really want to stick with a base consisting of the WTM plan just as it is in the book.  I don't want to lose the free-flowing nature of it (i.e., the parts where the student chooses which points were most important or interesting, then chooses which to research further) by going with a program which has all of that assigned.


I tried looking for correlations on the Paula's Archives of Homeschool Advice which used to be on redshift dot com but doesn't seem to exist any longer. :(  Where did that go?  It was such a gem.


Back to my point, has anyone added a "Bible strand" to TWTM Rhetoric stage history, and more specifically, to either History of the Ancient World or Western Civilization?

I too am looking for the same thing.  I like the looks of MFW because of the bible component, but I want to use WTM guidelines for the lit and history....following...

Not sure about rhetoric level but I think Paula's Archives is still up for SOTW. You might be able to use the topics listed for elementary to help with the relative rhetoric level.




Are you able to open that page?  I get a "Problem loading page" message which reads:

Firefox can't find the server at www.redshift.com.


    Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com

    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.

    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.


I turned off AdBlocker just for that site, but it still won't load.  :/  I wonder if it's a problem specific to my system.  I couldn't access some of Donna Young's high school forms last week, either.
