Economics are a big deal for both individuals and for nations as a whole. Unfortunately, economic illiteracy today is rampant–for individuals and governmental leaders! Many people just don’t have a grasp on some of the basic biblical truths that apply to economics.
In the new Ligonier Ministries production, a DVD study series called Economics for Everybody, R.C. Sproul Jr. examines economics from a Christian perspective and lays a powerful foundation of economic thought in a captivating and accessible way. The Ligonier website describes the video series this way:
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. It’s 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, it’s a message every Christian needs to hear.
