A Different approach

Helping You Provide Beacons

Every generation needs fixed beacons to find their way through the storms life will undoubtedly send. We want to help you find ways to pass on changeless truths to the next generation. Too often, Christian approaches to social sciences attempt to take public school designed content and add a few proof texts from Scripture to justify what is taught. Instead, we believe the foundation must be the universal principles God designed to govern a created universe. Discovering and mastering these universal principles will provide priceless tools in their arsenal. They will empower them to see through the faulty reasoning used by politicians, pundits, and the media to manipulate political agendas affecting more and more areas of our daily lives.

In the simplest terms, economics is a study of the thrifty use of scarce resources to satisfy human wants.

Other Books

Unmasking the Sacred Lies

In this book, Dr. Cleveland clearly lays out the important foundational issues that policy makers sadly miss or deviously seek to mask. He then examines several individual areas including education, the environment, welfare, and business policy revealing the sacred lies we have believed for far too long. The ideas in this book will more than likely challenge your view of what constitutes good public policy.

The Great Utopian Delusion

Individual freedom and liberty are fundamental principles upon which a good society is based. Regrettably, those principles have been under attack for over one hundred years around the globe. The notion that paradise on earth can be achieved by coercive means has led to the spread of tyranny and despotism

Basic American Government

A constitutionally oriented book which includes a valuable and lengthy one chapter description of the nature our government, followed by a history of its founding principles, tracing them from the ancient Hebrews, the Greeks, the Romans, the Medieval and reformation background, and the British sources. From there it describes the making of our national and state constitutions, the 19th century development, and 20th century departures.
