The Jubilee theme is the Old Testament concept of declaring a special season for attaining spiritual renewal. In Jubilee, Mel Lawrenz skillfully takes readers through a season of renewal, pausing to examine the following themes and inviting readers to consider their own lives and their response to God:
-Sabbath: a time and an attitude in which we rehearse that God and God alone is in control
-Proclamation: knowing what we stand for in life, and letting others know it
-Redemption: being freed by God's great acts of deliverance
-Freedom: cherishing the liberty that God brings to every area of life
-Forgiveness: accepting the mercy of God and releasing those we have held indebted to ourselves
-Healing: letting God restore our spirit, our body and our relationships
-Justice: standing for what is right and being an advocate for those who are downtrodden
