Unit Description

The 1920s saw the culmination of fifty years of rapid American industrialization. New products seemed to burst from American production lines with the potential for revolutionizing American life. Other products that had previously been toys for the rich were now available to a majority of Americans. The standard of living increased as the economy grew stronger and stronger. The results were spectacular. The America of 1929 was vastly different from the America of 1919.

Leading Ideas and Biblical Principles

  • Man’s discoveries and understanding will never outweigh God’s ultimate wisdom.
    • Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.. — Proverbs 3:7
  • Children and young people should be teachable and open to instruction.
    • A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, but a mocker does not respond to rebukes. — Proverbs 13:1
  • Happiness and success is not found in the gathering of wealth.
    • To the man who pleases Him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner He gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. — Ecclesiastes 2:26
