Welcome to Discerning History

We produce articles, videos, and curriculum for high school students through adults. Join us to delve into history! Learn not only the facts but the stories as well: why the events happened and what impact it has on us today. You will be challenged to think about history from a biblical perspective, and put current events in a historical perspective.
