New Teaching Series: Economics for Everybody

from Aug 17, 2012 Category: Ministry News

From government policy to household budgets, economics is everywhere. Yet few people have a proper understanding of economic principles, and how Christians should think about them. Economics for Everybody: Applying Biblical Principles to Work, Wealth, and the World by R.C. Sproul Jr. is a new 12-part video series and curriculum tailor-made for families, churches, and individuals who want to understand this important topic. Thoroughly unconventional, it links entrepreneurship with lemonade, cartoons with markets, and Charlie Chaplin with supply and demand. It’s funny, clever, profound, and instructive all in one place.

Economics for Everybody is a provocative, winsome, and informative attempt to bring both natural and special revelation to bear on economic theory and policy. Those looking for an introduction to economic ideas from a Biblical perspective will find Economics for Everybody an excellent first step.”

Dr. Shawn Ritenour
Professor of Economics, Grove City College

We live in a time when economic ignorance is a massive problem, and also in a time when that same ignorance creates a massive danger. Even worse, many Christians have failed to think with a biblical worldview when it comes to these issues. This is an area where we must learn to do better. Fortunately, and just in time, this instructive video series by my friend RC Sproul, Jr. is one I am delighted to recommend.”

I can do nothing but give the highest recommendation for this study. It serves as a desperate warning to a country that is heading in a wrong direction and as a guide to help individuals, families, churches, and governments rightly understand their roles in God’s sovereign schematic.”

Jeremy Lundmark

I highly recommend Economics for Everybody for any middle schooler, high schooler, or adult who desires a greater understanding of the field of economics. The economy has such a great impact on our day-to-day lives, we owe it to ourselves to take a little bit of time to understand the principles better.”
