Omnibus Info

Information, links, and thoughts I found useful while using Veritas Press’s Omnibus series.

Note:  None of the links are affiliate links.  See my disclosure.

Bible:  See my two charts about Bible Study throughout all six volumes of Omnibus.

  • The first chart shows where in the 6 volumes of Omnibus each Bible book is studied.
  • The second chart shows the order in which the Bible books are studied throughout the 6 volumes of Omnibus.

Code of Hammurabi (Omnibus 1)

Odyssey by Homer (Omnibus 1)

  • Edition recommended by Veritas Press:  The Odyssey of Homer translated by Richmond Lattimore, 1965. Price range: $10-15 Veritas and Amazon.ca.
  • Other options:
    • Notable translations listed in Wikipedia.  Many of these are free on Gutenberg.org.
    • Do be careful what translation you use because they are not all equal.  One year I started reading a modern one from the library and it was obscene.  Older is probably better.
    • The Children’s Homer by Padraic Colum is a good introduction for young students, but it is difficult to use Omnibus with this version; you’ll need a real translation if you are actually studying the book.

Chosen by God by R. C. Sproul (Omnibus 1)

  • See my review hereChosen by God is enlightening but spiritually and intellectually beyond most preteens and young teens.  Not recommended for the average Omnibus 1 student.

Le Morte d’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory (Omnibus 5)

  • We used this free version from Gutenberg.
  • Note that the book numbers in the Omnibus discussion do not match those in the Gutenberg version of the book.  Malory himself wrote 8 books, but when Caxton printed his work in 1485, he separated it into 21 books.  You can match up the topics using this Wikipedia article.
