Description

On such Scriptural mandates Susan Pace Hamill based her masters thesis in theological studies at the Beeson Divinity School. Her thesis, titled "An Argument for Tax Reform Based on Judeo-Christian Ethics," first appeared in the Alabama Law Review in the fall of 2002. A story by the Mobile Register outlining her Bible-based arguments for tax reform in Alabama triggered a response that no one, including Hamill, could have predicted. The media, the public, churches, civic groups, and politicians all began to rally behind the idea of ethically based tax reform, while others vehemently -- even viciously -- attacked Hamill personally. On February 12, 2003, The Wall Street Journal published an extensive front page story analyzing the wave of support for Hamill's work. That story brought a surge of interest from across the nation, proving that Hamill's moral arguments apply beyond Alabama's borders. Today Susan Hamill's thesis, and her related writings, are at the center of what can only be described as a grassroots tax revolution. This book contains those writings.
