Tithing

“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this’ says the LORD Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.'” Malachi 3:10, NIV

when you pick up Tithing by Douglas Leblanc there’s a question on the back of the book: “In these uncertain economic times, does it really make sense to tithe?”

do you ask yourself this question?

does your community of faith ask this question?

i’ve been challenged by this question and the importance of tithing.

Tithing is a volume in the wonderful Ancient Practices Series from Thomas Nelson. edited by Phyllis Tickle, the series covers beautiful spiritual practices that have been observed throughout spiritual history.

Tithing is a great addition to the works. it’s well written and easy to follow.

it’s not merely a book about tithing, it’s a book about community and fellowship with God and with others.

Tithing contains thoughts and reflections from many generations and many traditions. Leblanc shares from the many conversations he had regarding the ancient pracitce of tithing.

this is a wonderful book. i recommend it for anyone on a spiritual journey.

*Full Disclosure: I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson through “Book Sneeze.” They give free books to bloggers for honest reviews.*
