Product Description

Everybody talks about it. The news is full of it. But most Christians know very little about it. Economics: it's 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. 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.

    Fails to build arguments on scripture

    We just finished working through this book and the accompanying video series in our church as an adult Sunday school class. There was so little scripture used in this study that it doesn't make sense to use it for a Sunday school class or small group curriculum. I agree with many of the tenants of this book such as a limited role of government and also share his conviction that parents are ultimately responsible for the development of our children. The issue I have is that he make so many claims of what God intends and designs for economics but never uses the Bible to back them up. When he does use scripture he tends to stretch it in ways never intended. For example he makes the argument that we can't be good stewards if the government is "stealing" our money by taxing us. Granted I don't like taxes but he fails to mention the fact that Jesus told us to render to Caesar what is Caesar's and that the early church was taught to be good stewards despite the fact that many of them are slaves. The author also completely misses the fact that the American society, which is presented as God's original design, is largely based on consumerism and coveting what we don't have to grow. This book comes off feeling like the prosperity gospel and is not something I would recommend to other believers and certainly not my children. I do want them to learn about the importance of free markets but not from a study that misuses scripture along the way.

    I was really challenged to restructure my view of economics. I realized that I was not basing my OPINIONS on God's truth. I hope I have begun to "think God's thoughts after him" and will continue to allow God to guide my understanding of the world around me.
