Get to Know BP Consider the Years

Consider the Years is our new series of history texts for high schoolers. Only the first book in the series, Ancient Years, is on sale now. The rest will become available over the next few years, Lord willing, starting with Modern Years in early 2024.

Like our Companion texts before them, our Consider the Years texts cover Biblical and Church History side-by-side with World and U.S. History. Also like our Companions, they are loaded with pictures and fascinating facts to break up the narrative. With more than 1200 images per year, these are not the dry texts your high schoolers have come to dread. They are thorough and thought-provoking, but also fun.
