The Industrial Revolution and the Family: A Biblical Response

$5.00$7.00

Family life in America has been radically impacted by the Industrial Revolution. What happened to bring this about, and how should we respond? In this lecture, Wesley Strackbein shows how the Protestant work ethic led to an explosion of productivity, but how pragmatism blew men off course in their work decisions. Yet rather than glibly perpetuating wrong choices made in response to industrialization, Wesley maintains, thoughtful Christians should chart an informed, resolute course that strengthens families and furthers godly dominion.

Listen to a sample:

Family life in America has been radically impacted by the Industrial Revolution. What happened to bring this about, and how should we respond? In this lecture, Wesley Strackbein explains that a recovery of the biblical doctrines of calling and the dominion mandate prompted the explosion of technology that fueled the Industrial Revolution, but that the pragmatic philosophy of men like Benjamin Franklin led the business world astray. In time, this resulted in a restructuring of the American household, a redefinition of fatherhood and motherhood, and generational disconnect among youth—bad changes which remain with us today. Yet rather than glibly perpetuating wrong choices made in response to industrialization, Wesley maintains, thoughtful Christians should chart an informed, resolute course that strengthens families and furthers godly dominion.
