Resources for Teaching Investments from a Christian Perspective
This paper outlines ideas typically covered in an investments course from a faith-based perspective. Topics include the time value of money, bonds, markets, taxes, risk, and portfolios. We provide example resources and suggestions of faith integration accomplished through engaging multiple types of pedagogies and assignments. A sample final project enables students to demonstrate how the entire investment process discussed throughout the term comes together at the end to achieve an integrated portfolio. Biblically responsible investing, environmental-social-governance investing, and sustainable development goals are also considered as practical ways of integrating faith and investing.
