Economics For Everybody (Review and Give Away)

 Economics for Everybody
Economics for Everybody is today's Timberdoodle product review.   Be sure to read to the bottom of the post, I'm also hosting a give away of this product (open to U.S. mailing addresses only).

The product consists of a spiral bound study guide and two corresponding DVDs that cover 12 lessons.   The study guide also contains a two page list of additional resources that would benefit the student, but these are not required to complete this 1/2 credit course.  The DVD lessons are fairly short, with the longest only lasting 27 minutes.

R.C. Sproul, Jr. is unapologetic in sharing from a Christian world view, using actual Bible references to expound on his economic teaching.    Historical movie footage (some graphic in nature) and old black and white movie footage adds visual affirmations as well as a bit of comic relief.    Sproul, who enthusiastically teaches each DVD lesson is engaging and lively, with a twinkle in his eye.   This is not your typical dry, boring economics class.

Admittedly,  I sat down and watched 4 lessons in the first night.  No I'm not a glutton for punishment, but it really was interesting; and Sproul presented a few points that I had never really considered in regards to economics linking to the Bible.   Am I the only one who never tied the 10 Commandments to economics?!

Overall I really like the way this program is done.   We'll definitely be keeping this in my "curriculum to be used later" box to cover as the girls get older.

**For clarification purposes, the note above about some graphic in nature footage is from concentration camps and starving persons in 3rd world countries, not graphic as in vulgar.

Economics for Everybody is part of Timberdoodle's 12th Grade Curriculum Kit.

  2. The ten commandments ties into economics?! Nope, you're not the only one. I knew Psalm, Proverbs and even more in the NT had references to money. Thank you for your blog.
