Dan L. White is an author and an expert on Christian stewardship. He is also the founder of Homeschool Helpers, an organization dedicated to teaching these biblical principles to homeschooled students. White and his wife, Margie, publish a weekly column, “Homeschool News & Views,” which discusses homeschool education and its positive impact on America. In The Jubilee Principle: God’s Plan for Economic Freedom, White describes the connection between the Bible and the marketplace. White, an expert on Christian stewardship and founder of the Homeschool Helpers ministry, delves into Old Testament history and shows how God’s relationship with the Israelites is a model that can offer spiritual and economic liberation for Christians today.
As White examines the economic “long wave” a boom-and-bust cycle that happens roughly twice a century in free economies he uncovers the wisdom of the fifty-year Jubilee cycle in the Hebrews’ economy. Simply put, this was God’s plan to spare Israel the tumult of financial crises, and we can still learn valuable lessons from His timeless wisdom today.
In the end, White poses a challenge to all readers: “You see, the great choice in life is either God or gold. Each one demands all your life. You cannot serve God and mammon. Christ said that. Do you believe it?” The Jubilee Principle shows that only by serving God can people truly be happy personally, spiritually, and yes, financially.
