I'm looking for reviews or comparisons on ABeka and Bob Jones' high school World History text books.  While I personally can't stand history from a text book, I have finally come to terms with the fact that my high schooler would actually prefer it.  (Sigh.  So much for all my creative resources.) 

Have any of you used either of these text books?  What do you think of them?

Okay, I just read the reviews for these books (and a few others) at CathyDuffyReviews.com, and I'm leaning toward Bob Jones.  I'd love to know what experience folks have with the texts, though.
