And several more to come. Come back to enter a new one each day!
This one is really different. Have you ever been to Egypt? Me neither. It’s quite possible I never will, though I’ve always been fascinated by the history of a country that has been around almost since the beginning.
On December 1st, a team of young Christian filmmakers will be traveling to Egypt as part of the Navigating History Project, just announced by Western Conservatory. “Navigating History: Egypt” is a 6-episode adventure travel series designed to teach history, geography, current affairs, and worldview analysis from a Biblical perspective. The series will focus on the events and influences that shape nations, illustrating that ideas have consequences and that culture is never neutral.
Egypt, the oldest continuous culture in the world, has been influenced at various times in its history by the four dominant ideologies of the globe–ancient paganism, Greco-Roman humanism, the Christian Church, and the rule of Islam–making it an ideal place to show that culture is religion externalized. Along the way, the team will be providing book recommendations and pointers for further study. Unlike television shows where hosts are shot and edited by invisible camera teams, every aspect of production and travel will be visible to those watching from home, as every member of the team serves both on-camera and as production staff.
This series is targeted at an age group of approximately 13 and up, but children as young as 6-8 should find many aspects of the series engaging and educational. This can be a true family experience!
We have been invited to choose one reader to receive a free subscription to Navigating History (worth $49.95) !
