The book of Leviticus contained lists of rules and regulations.

Is there a "secret" formula in the Bible for personal wealth, health, and happiness? Is there an economic plan in the Bible for businesses, nations and the world to follow to ensure prosperity for its citizens? What does the Bible have to say about money and economics? The answers may surprise you. The Bible does have "secret" formulas for personal and national wealth. These formulas are "discovered" in this book. This book examines the economic thoughts, ideas, and philosophy of the Bible and elucidates how various biblical characters utilized these concepts to achieve unparalleled personal wealth. David and Solomon utilized the economic plan of the Bible to bring unprecedented wealth to the nation of ancient Israel. The transactions and economic principles used by the Patriarchs is examined in detail. The economic system proposed by Moses, intended for all nations and the world, is reviewed and its applicability for nations today is discussed. The book shows how Solomon and Ancient Israel achieved unprecedented prosperity, yet on Solomon's death the economy collapsed. The reasons for the prosperity and collapse are examined in detail. The book shows how the Persian Empire sunk the equivalent of over$1 Billion to form a Jewish State in Palestine. Yet, despite this, the Jewish State nearly failed. nehemiah, who some call the first turnaround manager, intervened and saved the state from extinction. The book also reveals the changes in these ideas and thoughts taught by Jesus Christ. Jesus used many specific coins of his day in his parables and teachings. In some cases, these teachings cannot be understood without understanding the role of the coins used in Jesus society. These parables are examined one by one in great detail to determine the exact meaning. The coins mentioned are illustrated and their role in the Judeo-Roman society of Jesus day is explained. The Bible mentions a millennium, a time when God will rule the earth. During this time the earth is prophesied to be very prosperous, with every person owning their own land and having an abundance of food, money, clothing, housing, and everything a human could want. What will the economic policies of Jesus government be to achieve this? These policies are clearly set forth in the Bible and are explained in this book. The Bible's "secret" formula for achieving personal wealth, health, and happiness has been hidden in plain sight for centuries. This book reveals this formula and shows how the reader can achieve personal wealth, health, and happiness by following the personal economic philosophy and guidelines of the Bible.
