The Two Rotten Novels That Turned America Left

Written by Gary North on November 21, 2015


I teach four years of literature courses for the high school program of the Ron Paul Curriculum. I also teach six weeks of literature for the eighth grade. For these lessons, I analyze two novels: Edward Bellamy’s Looking Backward: 2000–1887 (1888) and Charles Sheldon’s In His Steps (1896). Bellamy’s book is occasionally assigned to college […]

Economic Inequality: Jesus vs. Rev. Jim Wallis

Written by Gary North on October 24, 2015


Economist Vilfredo Pareto announced a discovery in 1897: about 20% of the families in Italy owned 80% of the land. He went on to study the distribution of wealth in other Western European nations. The same distribution held true. Subsequent studies of national economies have revealed the same distribution, no matter what their politics are. […]

Bad News for Traditional Catholics: Rev. Jim Wallis Cheers the Pope

Written by Gary North on September 26, 2015

He said that time had run out for Nineveh. It had. The Babylonians conquered Assyria in the next generation. Conclusion: Assyria was under God’s law and therefore under the law’s […]

Online: Calvin’s Lost Sermons on Deuteronomy

Written by Gary North on February 23, 2015


John Calvin preached 200 sermons on Deuteronomy. They have been dropped down the memory hole. Calvinist seminary professors have never heard of them, let alone read them. Until today, they had an excuse. Not any longer. In 1583, a translation of them appeared in English. This was ignored, then forgotten. Over four centuries later (1987), […]

Civilization and the Faculty Lounge

Written by Gary North on January 29, 2015


Ludwig von Mises is one of my heroes. He abided by a fundamental principle in life: “Never give an inch.” It was often said by Chicago School economists and other non-Austrian economists that Mises was just too hard core. He was just too unbending. For an example of this criticism, watch this brief video, which […]

My new book is now typeset: The Covenantal Structure of Christian Economics. You can download it here: http://www.garynorth.com/CovenantalEconomics.pdfIt is different from every other book you have read on economics.

With the digital publication of my book, The Covenantal Structure of Christian Economics, I have reached what could be called the penultimate stage of my calling. It took 55 years. The ultimate stage will be a multi-volume work on Christian economics. It will cover the actual economic operations that I describe in my recent book. […]
