Navigating History: Egypt Bundle
The Ideological Battles of the Ancient World Coming Soon to a Future Near You
Ancient Egypt, the mysterious land of mummies, Pharaohs, jackal-headed gods, pyramids, and God's mighty wonders. Its culture has captured the imagination of the world for more than 4,000 years... but “Navigating History: Egypt” will show you the Egypt you have never seen before. Discover the people and worldviews behind the mummy wrappings and hieroglyphs. Understand not only what Egypt was, but why it was, and what it has become. Master the ideas that ruled its society, religion, and government... and still haunt ours today. Learn how three of the world’s most powerful ideologies – ancient paganism, Christianity and Islam – have built and rebuilt Egypt throughout the millennia.
This vibrant, image-rich crash-course in history, culture, and worldview takes readers on a journey through Egypt's story, from Mizraim to Moses to Mark to Muhammad to Mubarak. Exploring language, government, art, technology, archeology, creation and evolution, theology, the early church, jihad, Shariah law and much more, “Navigating History: Egypt” provides the worldview tools to analyze not just Egypt, but any culture, from a biblical perspective. In the exciting DVD set, the Navigating History team takes you on a visually stunning tour inside pyramids, mosques and museums, through deserts, crowded Cairo streets, and Londonistan. Six half-hour episodes on three DVDs, including behind-the-scenes commentary, 24 video featurettes, the original soundtrack by Benjamin Botkin and much more. The 220-page book gives a thorough overview of Egyptian history and culture, with stunning images, maps, and charts. It includes study questions as well as recommendations for more in-depth reading and can be used as a companion to the DVD episodes. The glossy, fully-illustrated 39 inch-wide timeline charts the progress of the notable events and ideas in Egypt's history, placing people and dates into clear context. The chart contains the most up-to-date connection of Egyptian history to the biblical record as well as other historical records. This curriculum package is perfect for students, whole families, history buffs, or anyone who wants to master the ideas that have mastered the ancient and modern world.
Ancient History Meets Modern Adventure ...
Follow David Noor, Steven Bowman, Chris Harper and Isaac Botkin as they explore Egypt's history, from Pharaonic mythology to the Byzantine Empire to modern-day Islam. From on horseback to inside rusty taxicabs, travel with them across Egypt's ancient deserts and through Cairo's winding alleys. Dig into history, geography and current affairs, discovering the biblical worldview keys to the oldest contiguous culture in the world. Crawl the inner passageways of a pyramid, and test a new theory of pyramid construction. Learn how Islam swept the Middle East, and see what it looks like when it dominates a culture. Walk where Mark and Peter preached, and meet members of today’s persecuted Church. Visit ancient temples, and find out why God commanded the Israelites never to return to Egypt.
Experience the perspective of global travel, and uncover clues to the Bible's chronology along the way. All 6 episodes demonstrate how Christians can hone their worldviews, gaining a true understanding of history by focusing on the real influences that shape nations. The story of Egypt vividly illustrates the reality that ideas have consequences and that culture is never neutral. This 3-DVD set includes 6 half-hour episodes with behind-the-scenes commentary, 25 video blogs, the original soundtrack by Benjamin Botkin and much more.
“Our family thoroughly enjoyed this DVD. The young men did an outstanding job researching, recording, editing, and publishing this DVD. They were able to teach us in a very interesting and witty way and had us laughing at times. The careful observer will note a few surprises throughout. We liked watching it as a family since one or the other of us would pick up on something that another one perhaps did not right away. Very enjoyable and worth the purchase.”- Patty
“This was an excellent textbook overviewing the history of Egypt. The DVD set that goes along with it is also extremely well done. Less a history than a summary of the driving worldviews behind Egypt's stunning millenia-long history, this book is a worthwhile supplement to anyone's Egypt studies. I congratulate the Western Conservatory for producing such a superior product …” – Suzannah

Praise for “Navigating History: Egypt
“A rich and fascinating book. I am amazed by the amount of work and talent that has been put into it. I do recommend this to everyone who wants to learn and understand the magnificent story of Egypt.”
— Dr. Mark Gabriel, former professor of Islamic history at Al-Azhar University and author of “Islam and Terrorism”
“ An enormously helpful introduction to the 4200-year history of one of the world's most intriguing and enduring civilizations. But, Botkin and Noor do not just dispense knowledge about pharaohs and pyramids, caliphs and imams, monks and patriarchs. Instead, they provide a profound understanding of Egypt's past that very well may be the key to reshaping its future – and ours. This book, along with its accompanying film series, is a remarkable achievement.”
— Dr. George Grant, author of more than 60 books and chancellor of New College, Franklin. Tenn.
