|Linda Lacour Hobar is a mother, a motivator, a mentor and a 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. 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 Tennessee.
