Guest Bio

Business Secrets from the Bible

Rabbi Daniel Lapin is known worldwide as “America’s Rabbi.” He is an Orthodox rabbi who is the son of a renowned rabbinical family. Before immigrating to the United States in 1973, Rabbi Lapin studied Torah, physics, economics and mathematics in Johannesburg, London and Jerusalem. In 1991, Rabbi Lapin relocated to the Northwest and formed Toward Tradition, a national educational movement of Jews and Christians seeking to advance the nation toward traditional, faith-based, American principles. 

“Jews and Christians need each other if Biblical civilization is to survive,” says Rabbi Lapin. As a result, he started the American Alliance of Jews and Christians, a non-profit educational organization working to advance our nation toward the traditional Judeo-Christian values that define America’s creation and became the blueprint for her greatness.

He also says, “It was twenty three years ago that I was led to begin building bridges between Jews and Christians. We all should feel bonded by what we share—the Bible. The American Alliance of Jews and Christians grew from my deep conviction that despite theological differences, millions of us Jews and Christians share a common ethical vision of how people can best live alongside one another.” In making the case for Christianity in America, Rabbi Lapin believes that Jews at the very least should stop speaking and acting as if Christian America is their enemy.

Many people's generosity over the years has enabled the AAJC to bring the tools and the inspiration to hundreds of thousands of people via radio, television, personal appearances, and the books and audio CDs that today are found on every continent. 

Rabbi Lapin was motivated to write the book to address the issue of poverty and debt that God’s people face, especially in the church. He shares his wisdom with such people so that they can also experience the way to wealth and be instrumental in the kingdom. The book argues that the basic knowledge necessary for financial, relationship and spiritual success can be found in the Bible. Rabbi Lapin distills forty powerful permanent principles from the vast body of Jewish biblical wisdom, all of which are essential for increasing revenue in today’s business. Business Secrets from the Bible reveals the clear link between making money and spirituality. He not only urges readers to focus on self-discipline, integrity and character strength in order to achieve personal prosperity, but he puts the reader on the path to attain prosperity.
Rabbi Lapin comes from a rabbinical lineage. This enables him to give advice from the Hebrew language. It is the original language of the Bible and a pathway to Jewish wisdom and tradition. He connects the truths from both cultures to help people prosper with their finances.

Rabbi Lapin says that money making is a spiritual gift that only humans have. The ability to prosper is one spiritual gift that is imparted in man. Money can be made in different ways but the inspiration comes from above. The gift of wealth is given by God and when man works for it, he is blessed accordingly. This is Rabbi Lapin’s guidance to wealth and the basic principle of the book. He also says that this principle can be applied by all, irrespective of Jews or Christians. Any man who follows this principle is said to be successful.
