Dan Wolf’s life can be divided into his career and vocation. By way of career, he is a successful professional with over twenty years’ experience helping organizations solve problems. He possesses a rich mix of research experience, analytical abilities, and the capability of turning complex abstract ideas into something tangible. These same skills of research, analysis, and communication carry over to his writing. He deeply believes that things do not happen in isolation; that understanding different facets leads to a better understanding of issues.
He is a CPA with a Master’s degree in Finance and two years of doctoral coursework in human judgment and decision-making. He taught himself programming, and has extensive experience in utilizing technology to design and develop business processes that support cost modeling, performance metric development, financial and operational analysis, and the distribution of information from those processes. He has used analytical methodologies to identify cost improvement, cycle time reduction, data quality improvement, and human performance management opportunities.
His vocation began at a young age with a penchant for history, but started in earnest with the events of 9/11. In trying to understand those events he has been led on a journey which has included learning the tenets of Islam, the contents and history of the Bible, and exploring Christian philosophical/theological thought related to our purpose. This purpose directly translates into how we should govern ourselves and is born out in the history of freedom’s development. Future works will focus on these and related topics.

Our country is changing. Founding principles are being replaced by post-modernism. But, post-modernism is not new. Instead it is a return to the pagan beliefs of the ancient state religion societies. A time when man looked to himself, defining his own truth. Today’s interfaith movement grows from this same root. How should we as Christians respond? Can we maintain our faith in such a society?
Feel like we’re on the wrong track? Wondering how we got here, what needs to change? Many others feel it too. Look at Donald Trump’s nomination and the Brit’s vote to leave the E.U. Underlying both: independence set against control. The key is charity; self-sacrifice versus self-love, virtue versus vice. Collectivism and Charity uses education and the war on poverty to examine these question
Are we losing our freedom by forgetting the very things which set us apart? We no longer understand our history’s lessons. Two governance philosophies have existed since the ancient world.

In the process you will discover your purpose – and find hope.
