Linda Hobar is a mother, motivator, mentor and former missionary. With 17 years of homeschooling three children, 17 years of ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ and a sense of God’s calling on her life, Linda brings enthusiasm, warmth and inspiration to the subject of world history. She feels the Lord gave her first the title and the vision of the series, The Mystery of History, and then the drive and passion to write it. The title reveals her heart, which is that the ‘mystery’ of the Gospel of Jesus Christ would be made known, better understood and more deeply appreciated through the knowledge of God’s hand in world history. Teachers, parents and students have an “Ah hah!” experience when they see the big picture of God revealing Himself to mankind through chronological events in history. Through hands-on activities, Memory Cards, timelines, mapping exercises, audio books and much more, students learn to grasp, retain and retell the fabulous stories of the ages. In it’s ninth year of circulation, The Mystery of History has been chosen by Cathy Duffy as one of the ‘100 Top Picks’; it has tied for first place for Mary Pride’s ‘Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards’; and received ‘the Excellence Award’ from The Old Schoolhouse. A native-born Texan, Linda holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Baylor University, where she first fell in love with world history. She presently resides with her family in Memphis, TN where she enjoys fitness and kayaking adventures with her husband, and continues to research, write and further her education. In addition, Linda and her husband Ron manage The Mystery of History, Inc, to oversee the shipment of books all over the world as well as self-publish The Mystery of History Audio Book series. Ron concurrently ministers to youth through ‘Intersect Sports’ utilizing competition, instruction and Christian discipleship to build the ‘total athlete’. Be it through sports or world history, Ron and Linda strive to pour biblical truths into families that are seeking to live for the Kingdom.
