Beyond Tithes and Offerings is a wonderful book! Many of the books and articles I have thus far read concerning this perspective of the tithe are often negative, critical and neglect to encourage the practice of true Christian giving principles according to the Word of God, which can only be effectively enacted out of a changed heart, filled with God's love and divine purpose. Beyond Tithes and Offerings is for certain a brilliant exception!
This book not only outlines clearly and simply the proper biblical context of tithing (in contrast to the traditional view taught in most churches today - including my own, yikes! hehe), but it presents a practical challenge to invite the Lord to come and inspire our motivation to give out of our abundance to supply the lack of others; not out of necessity or by compulsion, but out of love.
If you are one who perhaps has chosen a non-tithing position thinking that this means you are now exempt from a responsibility to give (even of your finances), this book will, on the contrary, prove you otherwise and challenge you directly in your faith and your relationship with Jesus.
Beyond Tithes and Offerings does not neglect the importance of understanding Christ's heart as it concerns our giving.
Since reading this book, in addition to my own personal Bible studies and prayer, I have experienced a revitalized sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and a fresh liberty in the area of giving that I had been missing before. I learned so much more than what tradition has taught me over the years (or perhaps I should say mis-taught).

Michel webb et al, have done a masterful job of proving once and for all that tithing is NOT a New Testament command.
It has been taught by many ministers and TV preachers that tithing is THE key to prosperity for the believer. Some preachers and teachers even go so far as to state that unless you tithe (work of the law, mind you) you don't even qualify for blessing.
Excuse me, but the New Testament example for prosperity and any gift we receive from God is based on 2 Corinthians 8:9. By His poverty, we become rich...not through the work of tithing. Giving should be from the heart as we have purposed; not by compulsion to a law. We are under Grace NOT the Law. We give because we are already blessed NOT to get blessed.
**The authors have covered this masterfully in their book.**
In addition, tithing was under the OT Law to which Christ did several things:
* Fulfilled it
* Abolished it
* Nailed it to His cross
* Slew the enmity (through his cross)
* Blotted out the handwriting of ordinances which were against us
All of these references deal with the Law. Consequently, as a one Dr. Jay Snell has noted, we obey the Law not as an external document which damns; but as an inward impulse. And further, if you are a Gentile by birth, you were NEVER under the Law to begin with. Only the Jew was given the Law.
Under the New Testament, the Christian was never and is never told to give a certain percentage by compulsion; on the contrary, we have the freedom to give freely as we have purposed in our hearts. Not a legalistic 10%, but an amount that we have chosen from the heart because we give out of love. This also means that giving beyond 10% is both possible and probable.
**The authors cover this in their book as well.

I have felt coerced and guilty by my (former) pastor who insisted we give 10% of our gross salary to our local church, or else face God's wrath... I have always given 10% out of love but then after being hammered at, I started doing it out of guilt, fear and self-righteousness. Money seems to be very important today. This is a good - but rather long book. Also read the great internet article "Old testament giving vs. New testament giving" by Brian Anderson of Solid Rock church in Milpitas, CA.

I want to commend the writers for a wonderful and uplifting book. On the surface this book is about money, but in reality it is more about the freedom and grace that we have as christians. Next to the Bible this is one book that has truly shown me the love and grace of God, this book has had a profound effect in my walk with the Lord. From now on I will be lead by the spirit in my giving and not lead by well meaning but mislead men or women.
My hope and prayer is that we who have read the book and realize the truth in it will have the courage and conviction to stand up for those who are less fortunate than we are, to not fear men but to fear God. Let us also put this book in the hands of men and women that are responsible for handling the money in our churches. As for me I am going to get a few copies and send them out to my church leaders, if they read this book and are not touched by it than I will know that their heart is not for the poor but for the money. Now I know the true freedom I have in Jesus Christ.
Once again I thank the writers for letting God use them in such a powerful way. And most of all I thank Jesus my savior for my salvation and for my FREEDOM.
