Rod and Staff History And Geography

The proper study of history begins with a firm belief in the authoritative Word of God. Social culture, history, and geography can be evaluated correctly only when the design and purpose of God is considered. Rod and Staff's texts seek to honor God and view man and his actions in Biblical perspective.

In keeping with a Biblical perspective, these textbooks center on the place of God's people in history, instead of idealizing military heroes and super-power nations. We want to guide our students to a better understanding of God's unfolding plan for mankind rather than following man's pursuits, achievements, and culture from a humanistic perspective.

Many archaeological findings have proven the accuracy of the Biblical record. But whether or not available historical material exists to prove the Bible, every event happened just as the Bible says it did. We do not have to prove the Bible correct; it is true regardless of what men believe. This is a guiding principle in the study of history, especially ancient history.

It is our prayer that these texts may be used to the glory of God by enabling all who use them to clearly see the hand of Almighty God in history.
