About the Book

For over 1,400 years in ancient Israel, the Sanctuary Tax was unchanged. God had created a sound monetary system that experienced no inflation, despite wars, royal intrigue, foreign invaders, and 70 years spent in Babylonian captivity. Furthermore, the prophet Ezekiel describes a third temple to be built 5, 50, or 500 years from now. In this future temple, the Sanctuary Tax is the same as it was in the days of Moses. So, what’s the answer? A partial answer is discovered in the Hebrew word “shekel.” The definition of shekel is “weight.” As recently as the 18th Century, the British Empire had two centuries of no inflation. During this period, bank clerks’ salaries were unchanged for a century, all because of no inflation. With paper currencies, the world’s monies have lost their weight. Consequently, this book offers alternatives for 21st Century citizens to help protect their finances--and have more control over their assets, regardless of the evening news.

About the Author

As a college professor of investment courses and an investment advisor for 45 years, I slowly began to develop an appreciation for precious metals—and especially gold.

During this same period of time, my spiritual maturity was likewise increasing. Eventually these two areas of special interest in my life began to merge, with each reinforcing the other. About 20 years ago I wanted to write this book, but the Holy Spirit had other plans. The idea of writing this book bobbled up again about five years ago. The Holy Spirit again said “No.” Recently I was shocked to hear a pastor’s message about the elderly Moses and God’s directive: “Go Forward!” (Exodus 14:15-16). This book is the product, as a result of that sermon.
