America, land of the free. In a land of plenty, millions become homeless as the greatest depression in history looms on the horizon. In his first work of fiction, author David Rice chronicles The Year of Jubilee, the struggle of greed versus grace, power versus humility, self versus selflessness. In his political science class, Professor Michael Hamilton challenges his students to think outside the election box and solve society's financial woes with a fictitious political platform. What happens when the students, who believe their 'Mr. Smith' really can go to Washington, set the plan in motion and hit the campaign trail? Can an Old Testament idea really be the answer to America's debt? Can God's economic plan of grace, of plenty for all, be better than supply and demand? In a world gone blind, there walks a man of vision who believes the answer to these questions is yes.
