Product Description:

Subtitled "Applying Biblical Principles to Work, Wealth and the World", this set discusses foundational economic theory from a Biblical perspective. This study analyzes, from a Christian perspective, the basic philosophies which guide economics. The author, R.C. Sproul, Jr., strongly asserts that economics is not separate from other world systems or separate from the Christian perspective, but they are integrally interwoven, affect each other, and have lasting consequences. Lessons follow a thematic progression: key economic principles introduced (Chapter 1-5); relationship between economics and theology (Chapters 6-7) and finally, real-life application (Chapters 8-12). Individual chapters cover stewardship in Gods image; law, liberty & government; production, property and tools; money, markets and trade; capital, calculation & profit; God and politics; economic philosophies & systems; basic principles & education; inflation & depressions; costs of redistribution; the real effects of sin and kingdom economics.

The set includes two DVDs, each with 6 lessons and an accompanying paperback study guide. The author recommends reading the study guide chapters after watching each lesson. He also recommends 1 study guide per student (primarily for recording purposes). For a middle or high school student, a full economics course (1 credit) would combine this video and study guide with one of the 3 textbook resources listed in the Additional Resources (one of these is Basic Economics #056612). Conveniently, in each study guide chapter, Sproul indicates the additional resource chapters that correlate. The Study Guide provides brief highlights of the DVD lessons in the sections: Message Introduction, Scripture Reading, Learning Objectives, Key Quotations and a Lecture Outline,/i>. Then the study guide provides evaluation: a variety of analysis questions (multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, etc.) and then more in-depth questions: short answer and discussion questions. No answers provided. Each DVD lesson is approximately 30 minutes. Note: Graphic historical videos in lessons 2, 7 and 11 (such as war, starvation, prison camps, etc.) Set comes in a boxed slipcase. 236 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

Publisher Description:

Twelve 23-Minute Messages. Over 4 Hours of Teaching. Everybody talks about it. The news is full of it. But most Christians know very little about it. Economics: its everywhere, influencing everything, yet so rarely understood.

Economics for Everybody seeks to remedy that through an insightful and entertaining exploration of the principles, practices, and consequences of economics. Thoroughly unconventional, it links entrepreneurship with lemonade, cartoons with markets, and Charlie Chaplin with supply and demand. Its funny, clever, profound and instructive. If you want to know why economics is so important to understand, this is the series for you. In our day and age, its a message every Christian needs to hear.

I love the idea that this study is a philosophy of economics in a shorter format as a primer for my teen who will later take a more traditional high school economics course as well. Understanding the philosophy of our American system of free market and trade is important to our family's values.
