About

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 context.

Be sure to check out our new video series on the Causes of the Civil War. The American Civil War was a pivotal point in the history of our nation, yet many people do not really understand the events which caused it, or how the conflict re-shaped our nation. Now students and adults can travel with Dan Horn and Discerning History to understand the men and events that led to the Civil War, all from a uniquely Christian worldview. Causes of the Civil War is the first part of the War Between the States Series, a three volume set that analyzes the events that led to the war, studies the battles and campaigns, follows the end-results to the present, and helps viewers think more biblically about history.

If you have any questions or comments, just contact us. We’d love to hear them.
