Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Why History is the Most Important Subject You Will Ever Teach
This Seminar will explain why teaching history is a biblically mandated discipline for which parents are responsible. They need to be especially clear about American history and the history of Western Civilization, of which it is a part and the chief inheritor. The Bible provides a number of sobering examples of the failure to pass on to the succeeding generation their heritage.

A Military History of the Bible

This seminar will survey the military history in the Bible. We will examine the weapons (some of them of massed destruction!) and interesting campaigns of Israel, Assyria, Babylonia and Egypt from a perspective not often pursued in biblical studies. We will also look at the Roman army as it appeared in the New Testament.

Potter's Bio

A consummate historian and avid bibliophile, Bill Potter brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to each of his lectures. Bill is the author of Beloved Bride: The Letters of Stonewall Jackson to His Wife, and The Boy's Guide to the Historical Adventures of G.A. Henty. Bill Potter is also the lecturer of the best-selling "Providential Battles: Twenty Battles that Changed the World" CD album. With a personal library in excess of 4,000 antiquated hardbacks and a background as a top Ph.D. candidate in history at the College of William and Mary, Bill has earned a well-deserved reputation as a man gifted in communicating the story of God's providential hand in American history.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with William "Bill" Potter and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
