Vision Forum, Inc Biblical Economics: A Complete Study Course

Students of today will be dealing with the impact of the current economic turmoil for years to come. Ensure that they're equipped to deal with economic realities not only on scientific grounds, but on a biblical basis as well. Is money the root of all evil? What's the difference between the Keynesian, Austrian, and Chicago schools of economics? What about social justice? How does the Bible apply to economics?

This complete course in Biblical Economics is designed to help students understand important, basic principles: stewardship, creation, prosperity, profit, money, inflation, debt, poverty, equity, government, and more. Dry wit, concise explanations, and illuminative examples will keep students engaged and help them easily absorb the principles they're learning. Jr high & up.

This was a very thorough, in depth study. It has a lot of material. It was a little hard for my son to get thru it in one semester. However the information in it was delivered with passion. My son said he felt that it was a good quality and value. This is from someone who is READY to graduate! I would definately recommend it. Although, I would suggest you give yourself plenty on time to complete it. (more than one semester)

We are in the third section/chapter of this curriculum. It consists of a workbook that has questions like a group discussion devotional, a book, and a CD of Sproul teaching his class. The CD is very dry and droning. What he is saying is very good, but the presentation is lacking.
The material content is EXCEPTIONAL/PHENOMENAL, Biblical, and very deep. The workbook is nice discussion-starter questions for myself and my daughter who is a senior homeschooler. She likes to talk deeply about the Bible and spiritual matters and she is a very studious person in all other subjects of school. However, this curriculum has quite a lot of what I would call "good words" (that means that my children have to look them up in the dictionary and write them in a vocab. notebook). My oldest and most studious child is taking it rather well, but I would say the average high schooler would not. This material, though easy to understand, needs vocabulary that is simplified for the average high schooler. Because the average high schooler can and needs to learn what this author has to say.
The curriculum could be considered concise. None of the books are very thick and it would be easy to get through the material, even looking up words in the dictionary, during a normal class period. In addition, it should be easy to fit this curriculum into one semester.
