Christopher Zehnder | History Through a Catholic Lens | The Catholic Homeschool Podcast

Sometimes when viewing history we can forget that every textbook, no matter how unbiased they may claim to be, will always have a particular perspective that they are being written from. Today, Paola sits down with Christopher Zehnder, the General Editor of the Catholic Textbook Project, to discuss how to teach and learn history through a Catholic Lens.
