About the Book

This informative book on the Old Testament practice of tithing will give the reader a clear understanding of exactly what tithing was to the Israelites. This book will answer questions about what items were tithed, how often tithes were collected, whether everyone was expected to tithe, if anyone was cursed for not tithing, and of course, whether tithing is for today's Christian. Tithing in the Age of Grace contains every pertinent scripture as it relates to tithing. This book will also explain why Christians aren't required to tithe, and indeed, why they shouldn't tithe. Tithing in the Age of Grace contains chapters entitled:

  • Tithing prior to Old Testament Law
  • The command to tithe in the Old Testament law
  • Tithing throughout the Old Testament (especially in the Book of Malachi)
  • Tithing in the Gospels and book of Acts
  • Tithing for the New Testament Christian
  • Guidelines for giving in the New Testament age
