Item Description...
This 288 page book began as a Ph.D. dissertation. It is an easy to read reference commentary which also contains many Greek and Hebrew word studies, and an extensive bibliography. Every tithing text is covered, plus every possible extension of it in the New Testament. The author demonstrates how the Church must replace this last taboo remnant of the Old Covenant Law and enter fully into must better New Covenant provisions for accomplishing God's work. No stone is left uncovered. A thorough historical survey of the first 300 years of church history and verse by verse studies of key chapters adds compelling evidence.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent book!  Aug 30, 2007
The author has demonstrated through overwhelming biblical evidence that tithing is not for Christians today. I wish Christians would study the scriptures he quotes and follow the Word of God instead of the words of some pastors who follow a tradition instituted by the Catholic church hundreds of years after Christ. Jesus and all the apostles never taught tithing. They taught the concept of free will giving. Apostle Paul even contradicts tithing in 2 Cor 9:7-10 "Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

Beside the numerous New Testament biblical evidence stating that we are no longer under the old law, Dr. Kelly shows through his Old Testament biblical text proofing that even if were still under the law, we are only allowed to tithe to the Levite priesthood which no longer exists. This is the reason Jewish Rabbis who strictly follow the Old Testament today do not collect tithes, to do so would be a sin, instead they tell the congregations to tithe to the poor or to a charity.

I recommend this book to any Christian who wishes to explore the bible in great detail on this topic. Dr. Kelly takes you on an excellent study relying more on the Word of God than personal opinions.
A great book. A must have  Aug 24, 2007
You should know what the scriptures show about this subject.
90% of those who tithe can't answer the most basic questions about it.
How can you be dead and hid in Christ, and under a curse at the same time?
Why is it that Jesus is the True fullfillment of **ALL** that is in the Old testament accept one thing..... the tithe?
Wisdom cries in the gates of this book.
Prove all things.
A good purchase :)
If You Read One Book on the Doctrine of Tithing...  Aug 19, 2007
If you read one book on the doctrine of tithing, let it be this one.
The Standard for books concerning the tithing issue  Aug 6, 2007
This is easily the best book on the topic of tithing out there. It is professionally done and well-written. Not only will the reader learn truths about tithing that are not revealed in church, there is a great deal of quality teaching concerning priesthoods and the new covenant.

The only questions I might have are that the author believes that in the old covenant there were three distinct and separate tithes taken. It is my opinion that there was only one annual tithe, spent in three different ways according to the tithe cycle, with every 7th and 50th year having no tithe requirements at all (sabbath rest for the land... the tithe, after all, was food and never money!)

This is a book you can dive into and get something new in multiple readings of the same chapters. Kelly even discusses in-depth the secular history of tithing, as well as how the practice crept into Christian circles well after the early church (Which, of course, never mandated a 10-percent temple-tax to build churches, pay pastors, or influence politics.)

Your pastor will hate it, but God loves it.

The truth will set you free; this book will help loosen the bonds of finacial voo-doo that the mainstream church preaches today.
Covers the subject entirely  Feb 8, 2007
This book was extremely in-depth and well researched. He promoted his arguments from sound documentation and study. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in studying the historical roots of tithing. Very thorough and still easy to understand.
