Compared to other countries in the world, Americans enjoy an astonishing range of freedoms, including a broad range of rights related to religion. With Christian churches dotting almost every corner in communities across the nation, it is hard to remember there was a time when religious liberty was a distant dream and a cause for which many died.

In a thorough review of this troubled history, you will be introduced to the ideas and sacrifices that kept the dream of religious liberty alive until it became a powerful cornerstone of a fledging nation. While some leaders of the faith are revealed as religious persecutors, it is important to understand the political and social context of these events because it lays the foundation for the ideals and protections now found in the U.S. Constitution. The History of Religious Liberty:

  • Reveals why the popular idea of the Enlightenment being at the heart of the Bill of Rights is simply wrong
  • Takes an unflinching look at persecution of the Church as part of a well-researched survey of critical historical points
  • Reflects the reaction of everyday Christians to the repressive forces of tyranny echoing in the struggle for religious liberty globally today.

These compelling stories of both well-known and obscure martyrs of the faith each help to advance the true birth of religious freedom. Their simple and courageous acts of defiance against tyranny and intolerance stand as a testament to the truth that God is the ultimate author of liberty.

I learned a lot
Review by Lexie
This curriculum is designed for the high school student and is set to take up 170 days. I would say that this book does not have many fun and engaging photographs, but it has such rich knowledge packed into the text, that it pulls the reader back in. In regards to our religious liberty, it is easy to take it for granted, but this course will leave the learner with a better appreciation for the freedoms and Bible that we have today. One thing to keep in mind is that this is a book that speaks of the martyrs that were killed via the Catholic Church and their attempts to stop the translation of the Bible into English. The questions in the teacher's guide along with the quizzes are ones that are not simple a match or multiple choice. The student will be expected to give sentence and paragraph style answers. There are bonus questions as well that were a bit more challenging.
Highly Relevant
Review by Lacee
While this course is designed for High Schoolers, I think many adults would benefit from the knowledge gained from taking this course as well. This set has both the text and the Teacher Guide; the TG includes student worksheets with a variety of questions from understanding the reading to more in-depth thinking, quizzes, mid-term and final exam, and answer key. The text itself can be heavy and definitely is geared towards upper High School (and adults!); it has a great deal of information packed from cover to cover. This course takes us from the 1500's through the Battle for the Bill of Rights in the late 1700's. You will learn about those that fought and sacrificed for the religious freedoms we have and prepare us for the battles yet to come to keep our freedoms. Knowing history is a key component to moving forward into the future. Now, more than ever, we need to have a greater understanding of our Religious Liberty History.
Fascinating story of those who lived and died believing that God is the author of liberty.
Review by Kathleen
This tells the story of the Christian persecutors so that we can put to test the claim that people who care little about faith and religion were the heroes of liberty. You will see the ideas and sacrifices that kept the dream of religious liberty alive until it became a powerful cornerstone of a fledging nation.

Included are images of relevant people, places and events.
The Teacher’s Guide includes a schedule, and the answers to the student pages which have several questions for each chapter reading.
An Excellent History Course
Review by Becky V
The History of Religious Liberty Set is an excellent history/civics course for your upper high-school student. It is a one-year course that will earn your student 1 credit. Time investment is about 30 to 45 minutes for each lesson, scheduled five days a week. All assignments, including the suggested weekly schedule is included in the Teacher Guide that goes along with the student text.

The teacher guide for The History of Religious Liberty course is very thorough and well organized. It includes a weekly lesson schedule, student worksheets, exams (quizzes and final exam), and an answer key. The suggested daily schedule is set up to cover the text over 34 weeks, 5 days a week. Typically, there is a few days of reading a week, followed with a couple of days to complete the written work included in the worksheet. There are 1-2 worksheets for each chapter and quizzes that review every four chapters. The last week of the course (Week 34) is set aside to prepare/study for the final exam - it is of essay form.

I really appreciate the variety of questions within the worksheets. Some are simply to show evidence of content read - the answer is very easily found within the student textbook. Others get the student thinking beyond the text and allow for a deeper reflection of the text. The bonus questions included are excellent and allow for connections to be made with the text to biblical history, opportunities to take a deeper look or read further into something covered in the text, or even to give first hand experience in field trip ideas/recommendations.

Quizzes include 10 questions for each quiz that covers four chapters. Each question requires a short written response. The final exam includes one prompt to be answered in a well-written essay. The answer key gives the teacher an quick summary of the general answer and how a student may respond to the questions.

The teacher guide is an excellent resource to help guide your student through this excellent course.

A difficult topic to study, but so important! This course will help you to understand that your freedom of religion is of upmost importance and must be understood. It takes you through the 1500s to the Bill of Rights in 1791 (from Tyndale to Madison), ending with a look into the current state of religious freedom. You will study the men that fought and sacrificed to create the religious liberty we have in America.

I highly recommend this course to every high school student. And even to anyone who might be interested in the topic and history of religious liberty.
Upper Level History elective for history lovers!
Review by Sara
This course is a wonderful upper level course for any student with a love of history. It is a very timely course supporting the fact that our country was built on Christianity with biblical content throughout. The worksheets for the course are review questions based off of the week’s reading and quizzes are every 4 chapters. Could count as a civics credit for 11th or 12th grade. Upper level reading comprehension for sure, but a well written resource on religious liberty.
Great curriculum!
Review by Krista
Learning the history of religious liberty is a fascinating study.
This course geared for high school students is composed of a student edition, as well as teachers guide. Included is a weekly lesson schedule, student worksheets, quizzes, final exams, as well as answer keys. I love how students are equipped with biblical truths and firm foundations to defend their faith. The daily schedule included makes it manageable for a student to complete this course self directed. I am impressed with the content and topics covered throughout this one year course!
Love this curriculum
Review by Ashley
This book has a schedule which covers 170 days of work. This book has all the worksheets quizzes and final exam that are to be used to see if your student or students are understanding what they are learning throughout the course. It also includes the answer key to the worksheets quizzes and tests.

This course has two parts. One part covers from out of the short five with 16 sections name in a few sculpture of Dloughboys. War of the words, the Bible and the boy King, and the foundations of paradoxes. In part 2 which covers the irresponsible yawning with 10 sections naming a few enclosed Gardens of God, a new light of hanover and the Battle of Bill of Rights part 1 and 2. If you want to give your students the information of religious Liberties this course is a must my daughter is going to be doing this in 9th grade unless she wants to do the other course she chose first, but she looks forward to completing it.
Very good
Review by Sharon
Manageable workload. Interesting topics and easily accessible. We used this curriculum last year and my daughter absolutely loved it.
So far so good
Review by Melissa
We bought this curriculum last year, but are just now getting to use it this year. My son says so far so good. He is enjoying learning about the details of each monarch and each religious faction's take on events. He enjoys reading the book, even when not doing school.
Great Historical Overview
Review by Andria
I bought this for myself, honestly, but my daughter choose to do it along with Civics for an elective while doing Civics and she has learned SO much. She struggles with ADD but is thriving with MasterBooks and really gaining both information and independence! Eventually I hope to get the books back and do the course myself.
