Item description for God's Guarantees for Giving: A Biblical Look at the Law of Tithing... Was It Rescinded by Grace? by Ron Knott...
God is ready to increase the wealth of anyone who will obey His Word. God is bound to honor His Word. But what exactly does His Word tell us? Many Christians are either confused or deceived about the subject of giving. Should we pay tithes or give freely? Do we give all our funds to our local church? What about giving to the poor and needy? Jesus stated that we would burn in an eternal fire if we did not care for those in need (Matthew 25). Why do many Christian leaders avoid this command?

Excellent book on the reality of New Testament Giving Oct 10, 2003
Ron Knott has written an excellent book dealing with the question of tithing for New Testament believers. The issue has become somewhat of a sacred cow for many in the church and Knott masterfully lays out his thesis and delves into much scripture to prove his points.
if you are committed to tithing and believe it is New testament in its application, you should read this book anyway as there are many more scriptures dealing with tithing than Malachi 3:8-10. In fact, Knott shows that the tithe was NEVER money and further that the tithe was sometimes consumed by the individual.
Knott's book does have one peeve with me: he takes Jesus' teaching above giving to the poor and misapplies it to the Born Again believer. Jesus stated in the Gospels that those who do not give to the poor would not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Knott is correct in that this is in the Bible but he fails to apply it in light of the rest of scripture. The ONLY requirement for one to go to heaven is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Period. To make giving to the poor a requisite would violate salvation by grace through faith.
Other than this theological oversight, the book is remarkably balanced and tempered in its presentation as Knott does not have an axe to grind. He does make his points however.
Good book on christians and tithing and a must-read!
