The Jubilee Gospel: The Jubilee, Spirit and the Church by Kim Tan

  • Kristen Cooper


The Jubilee Gospel, by Kim Tan, is recommended as an addition to a devotional library or collection of resources about social holiness or biblical community living. Tan’s central claim is that the Gospel message is truly
a proclamation of Jesus’ “Jubilee mission” of redemption, and Christians ought to take seriously the “social holiness and justice” (p. 2) aspects of Jubilee practices. The book may be best described as a personal reflection on years of scriptural study; Tan writes from personal conviction and his experience living in an intentional Christian community for eight years.
