  • Summary:

    The biblical Jubilee that was celebrated once every fifty years is referred to in Leviticus 25 as the ‘Sabbath of Sabbaths.’ Its requirements included that the land lie fallow, all debts be forgiven, captives be freed, and a celebration held. Maria Harris considers the implications of a living Jubilee for today and for the next century. She offers a compelling argument that a living Jubilee is a comprehensive spirituality that would have a positive political, economic, and moral impact on individuals, families, religious congregations, institutions, and nations.
