Economics for Everybody: Applying Biblical Principles to Work, Wealth & the World

From their website:

"Economics: it’s everywhere, influencing everything — and 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 all in one place. "

Algebra, Government, Economics - Oh MY!  Ready or not...High School here we come!  The Bentz Test Laboratory is on the brink of a whole new homeschooling adventure...where do we start to tackle these important (and some times daunting) subjects?

I always look to someone more talented than myself... thus - we have lined up the "experts" to teach these subjects.  Here's where Economics for Everybody enters in!

Meet Dr. RC Sproul, Jr. (a.k.a. -  Bentz Academy Economics Instructor) -  has focused much of his lengthy teaching and writing ministry on worldview issues, apologetics, family matters and economics. He is a Teaching Fellow at Ligonier Ministries, professor and lecturer at Ligonier Academy in both the Bible college and D.Min. programs, and is the founder of Highlands Ministries. 

Plus, he's very engaging, interesting, and fun to watch! (much better than mom attempting to explain this subject...)

This series is designed specifically for families, small groups, homeschool students middle and high school level.

Economics for Everybody is available as DVD (or downloadable) series of 12 lessons covering everything from "Why Study Economics" and "Economics Philosophies and Systems" to "Kingdom Economics".  Each 15-30 minute video combines Dr. Sproul Jr. clearing explaining the topic presented along with video clips, history, old movies and more.  I guarantee this is not a dry, boring re-telling of an economics textbook!  This is the type of lessons that will stick with your student.  Best of all, it is completely grounded in a Christian Worldview!

In addition, you get the 250 page Study Guide which includes an expanded outline of each lesson with additional material not included in the lessons; it also includes related Bible readings, discussion questions, short answer questions, and multiple-choice questions. Finally, it includes a listing of all the sources used in the series.

Check out the Overview of Lessons and Watch the First Lesson for yourself!  Do you want to hear what others are saying, check out the reviews here.

We were so excited about Economics for Everybody that we are having our Co-op use this resource.  High school economics doesn't have to be intimidating - in fact, it can be down right fun! 

Don't miss out on a the great Presale Price!

I was sent a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
