The Mission of the Acton Institute is to promote a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and sustained by Christian principles. We are named after the great English historian, Lord John Acton (1834-1902). He is best known for his famous remark: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Acton Institute produces curriculum, publishes books, organizes seminars, conferences and programs aimed at educating religious leaders of all denominations, business executives, entrepreneurs, and professors in economic principles and in the connection that can exist between virtue and economic thinking. Our premiere event held each June is Acton University.
Acton Institute's publications and media products range widely from those directed at the general public to those that are rigorous academic essays. We print a journal called Religion & Liberty that engages the intellectual reader on issues in the areas of religion, politics, economics, literature, and culture. Acton Media has published Effective Stewardship and Birth of Freedom in conjunction with Zondervan. Additionally, Acton produced a documentary entitled Call Of the Entrepreneur. Our newest offering entitled PovertyCure along with Acton’s other titles are available through the Acton Book Shop.
Christian’s Library Press, an imprint of Acton Institute has been committed to publishing influential texts on church leadership, the vocation of work, and stewardship for more than 30 years. This fall, Christian’s Library Press has published three books on the integration of faith, work and economics from three different evangelical traditions: Baptist, Pentecostal and Wesleyan. A reformed primer is due out in 2013.
