This book is an in-depth analysis of tithing from the perspective of the New Covenant. It evaluates the scriptural references to tithing in their context: before the Law, during the Law, and after the Law. It exposes the faulty theology of tithing and explains why it hinders the body of Christ from entering the fullness of God’s provision and purpose. It also describes God’s plan for Spirit-led giving today.
This book goes far beyond the discussion of tithing and financial giving. Most importantly it lays the foundation for understanding the New Covenant paradigm of life in Christ as a son of God. For more about the perspective this book was written from, please read the Preface, which is presented under Excerpt. For more detailed information about the contents, please see the Table of Contents and the Publisher's Comments.

Have you ever questioned the myriad of conflicting doctrines on the subject of tithing? Do you have solid scriptural answers to the barrage of teaching that constantly proclaims tithing to be God’s plan for New Covenant believers?
In this book you will find a thorough scriptural study of tithing as it relates to born-again Christians, who have entered the new and glorious spiritual life of being sons of God through Jesus Christ.
·How the tithing doctrine contradicts the New Covenant and destroys the power of Christ’s finished work on the cross.
·What the Bible actually says about tithing before the Law and why the popular teaching that promotes tithing is wrong about the tithe that Abraham gave to Melchizedek.
·The truth about tithing during the Law and how the confusion about tithes, offerings and gifts contributes to the erroneous teaching that Christians should tithe.
·What the Bible actually says about tithing after the Law and where the misunderstanding originates that causes people to think that tithing is God’s plan for the church.
·Answers to more than twenty of the most popular statements that are used to promote tithing—each statement scripturally analyzed and exposed as being contrary to the New Covenant.
·God’s glorious New Covenant paradigm for giving which is separate from and superior to any concept of tithing.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
This book is about much more than tithing or not tithing. It's about setting people free from a wrong, religious mindset so they can experience the reality of New Covenant life in Christ. It’s about recovering a glorious spiritual inheritance that Christians have been defrauded of, exposing wrong doctrines that negate Christ’s finished work on the cross. It’s about living like a righteous, new-creation son of God, born again through spiritual union with Jesus Christ by his resurrection from the dead. This book is just a beginning. Tithing is just the tip of the iceberg of carnal mentalities that dominate most of Christianity.
I was taught to tithe as a child and did so for many years without question. It was never a problem to me, spiritually or financially. I thoroughly agreed with the teaching and wasn’t looking for any reason to contradict it. However, after many years of seeking God and studying his word, I have come to see the doctrine of tithing, and all other financial giving as well, in a new light—the revelation of the mystery of being in Christ.
I have two objectives in writing this book. One is that Christians would wake up and realize that tithing is part of the old carnal religious way of life and put it aside to enter the New Covenant way of living. The New Testament’s description for this way of living is, in Christ. Religious traditions that man has created are the biggest obstacle to the glorious life of God that we were created to enjoy. Tithing is one of those well-meaning-but-misguided traditions.
Another objective is to equip Christians with a solid scriptural foundation to answer the constant barrage of teaching that is promoting tithing and keeping the church in a low-realm, religious mode of living. The doctrine of tithing has been mindlessly taught and accepted for so long that some of the most outstanding Christian leaders do not recognize how it contradicts the very foundation of the gospel they are preaching.
This book may challenge some of your deepest beliefs. It may contradict your most esteemed spiritual leaders. But no brother or sister in Christ is being personally judged or attacked. I appreciate those who have given their lives in service to the Lord and his church. The Bible tells us to "esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake" (1 Thess. 5:13). However, their teachings are at all times to be examined in the light of scripture.
This book exposes the error of some very popular teachings but does not accuse those who are teaching them. No names are ever mentioned, but you may recognize some statements. There are many well-known ministers, whom I greatly respect, that I have to disagree with when it comes to the subject of tithing.
Paul the apostle said in 1 Corinthians chapter 13, "we know in part" and "we see through a glass, darkly;" therefore, we can never expect perfect doctrinal unity. However, we can pursue a better knowledge of the truth and we can extend the love of God to one another in the process. If we disagree, we can do so respectfully. Each person must walk with God in the best way they know.
I ask you to lay aside preconceived ideas and traditional thinking, and prayerfully consider the message of this book. Its purpose is to move the church toward the highest and best that God has provided in Christ. I pray that it will be the beginning of a spiritual revolution in your life.
