Examines the underlying assumptions of modern society by contrasting the worldviews of the Hebrews and the Greeks. Overman shows how to adopt a more biblical way of viewing society and life.


Are you aware of the underlying assumptions that shape your values and behavior? Have you given much thought to how your assumptions about what's "really real" influence your daily actions?

We often underestimate the importance of presuppositions that lie behind the values and behavior of ourselves and others. Like an iceberg floating in the ocean with just ten percent visible and ninety percent below the surface, we sometimes lose sight of the fact that words and actions are first shaped by beliefs that lie deep within the reaches of an inner concept of reality called a worldview.

Going beyond values and behavior to examine the underlying beliefs and assumptions that shape one's worldview is what this book is all about. Examining worldview assumptions is critically important for understanding the times and the culture in which we live. Assumptions That Affect Our Lives has helped thousands to make a difference in the way they live, by making a difference in the way they think.


U.S. History to 1877 is a one-year curriculum for high school that integrates U.S. history, government, English, and Bible (3 full-year credits).

Throughout the year, students will develop a biblical worldview in their daily life, in areas such as history, economics, law, and science.

This curriculum focuses on the time of early exploration to the Civil War and dives into the structures and functions of the U.S. Government through reading historical documents, political speeches, and literature written during that time period.
