I am thrilled to announce that Brian Jacobson helped me out in hosting this episode and the hope here is that he will be able to do this pretty consistently. Brian writes regularly here at TRL and I always look forward to reading what he has to say.
We had a blast talking to Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr! Dr. Sproul is the rector of theology and chair of philosophy and theology at Reformation Bible College, and a teaching fellow for Ligonier Ministries. Dr. Sproul is author of several books, including Biblical Economics, a pastor of Ascension Presbyterian Church, and hosts the daily podcast Jesus Changes Everything.
In this episode, we discussed with Dr. Sproul some of his background in economics and political theory, how he became interested in it, and why Christians should know Austrian economics. We had him comment on the nature of economics, he said a few things about foreign policy, and also about the relationship between Christianity and liberty; and he even gave a friendly jab toward “anarchist” ideals (which we may comment on later). We were able to integrate some of the questions that you readers had provided for us, but not all of them. Which simply means we will have to have him back on!
Here are some of the resources we mentioned in this podcast:
