My 12th grade niece wants to be an English major and would like to read several original ancient works this year. Her mom and I are both pretty clueless about this area of study.

Veritas Press has a good selection in their Omnibus IV books.  Has anyone used this. Do you know if it makes much difference what translation of ancient works you read.

Any advice or discussion on this subject would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Nancy

I am helping teach Omnibus I this year and know some of its authors personally.  Getting the correct translation is the best option-some for me were on PBS!  Omnibus really teaches the student how to think biblically and logically through the great classics.  It also puts the historical time period into "real life" so to speak.

She may be able to take an Omnibus class online at Veritasacademy.com which is very intensive and interesting-they have excellent instructors.  Check if there are any spots left.

Also, New Saint Andrews College in Idaho may be something she is interested in.  I know several folks out there and may be able to put you in touch with some one for a more personal connection-PM me if you like.
