Acton Lecture Series
Starting in the late-Victorian period, American society began to question the existence of beauty. Overtime our culture accepted the notion that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Despite warnings by writers such as CS Lewis (Abolition of Man), Christians had adopted this idea by the mid-1950’s. Early on this move was seen as freeing to the individual. In fact, the loss of objective beauty led many Christian to adopt a reactive and statist solution to cultural problems.
This lecture examines the unique role the church plays in a market-based economic system, as well as the moral imperatives given in scripture and Christian social thought that are foundational to building an economy that allows flourishing and ensures justice for all. Pastor Brooks explains the vital relationship between economics and moral philosophy for a free and virtuous society.
The vast changes in Western culture are far more than shifts in morality. At a more fundamental level, they reflect a shift in how we think of the nature of reality and, in particular, the human person. The Church, if it is to address the deep issues of the day without becoming captive to political ideologies, must recover and advance a Biblical vision on humanity. This lecture explores the substance of an anthropology informed by Scripture, as the basis of a Christian worldview.
Victor Claar, Professor of Economics at Henderson State University and Affiliate Scholar at the Acton Institute, joins host Julie Roys and Jenny Eaton Dyer of Hope Through Healing Hands on Moody Radio's Up For Debate to discuss how Christians should respond to President Trump's first budget proposal, especially as it relates to proposed cuts in US foreign aid.
On this edition of Radio Free Acton, we're joined by Micah Watson, the William Spoelhof Teacher-Scholar Chair at Calvin College, to discuss the views of C.S. Lewis on democracy, specifically as they relate to the area of education. Lewis was not a fan of democracy, and worried about the effect of democratic inclinations within a culture on the quality of education systems.
Acton Feature Films
The west has made itself the protagonist of development, giving rise to a multibillion dollar poverty industry. From TOM's Shoes to international adoptions, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?
For the Life of the World: Letters to the Exiles
For the Life of the World is an entertaining film series that explores the deeper meaning of Salvation. Have you ever wondered, “What is my Salvation actually FOR?” Is it only about personal atonement, about getting to heaven, or something that comes later? Is it just to have a “friend in Jesus?”
The Birth of Freedom
The American founders said that all men are created equal and are endowed with certain unalienable rights--that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They called this a self-evident truth. But humans are separated by enormous differences in talent and circumstance. Why would anyone believe that all men are created equal? That all should be free? That all deserve a voice in choosing their leaders? Why would any nation consider this a self-evident truth? How is freedom born?
The Call of the Entrepreneur
A merchant banker. A failing dairy farmer. A refugee from Communist China. Why do their stories matter? One risked his savings. One risked his farm. One risked his life. Because how we view entrepreneurs shapes the destinies of individuals and nations.
