Author Douglas LeBlanc’s Tithing is a book full of the stories of people who tithe faithfully and how God has blessed their lives as a result. The people LeBlanc interviewed for this book come from all over the nation and from all denominations of the Christian faith. Something unique about each of them is that their giving is done very generously and without the feelings of regret or worry. They often give more than the usual 10% that many pastors recommend today. They also give of their time and their talents.
The topic of the ancient spiritual discipline of tithing can be a touchy one and one that people often avoid. Especially in these tough economic times when so many are out of work, it is difficult for many people to think of tithing. But the stories in this book show evidence that when you tithe, as commanded by God, you will be blessed. Your needs will be met.
I am a testimony to that fact. My husband was out of work for nine months and we tithed off of every little bit of money that came into the house during that time. God never failed us. We always had food to eat and we were able to keep our house.
There were several stories in this book that captured my attention immediately but many of them were long and did not quite get to the point quick enough. It was nice to hear the background of each person and how they decided to tithe, but many of the stories fell short of that. Overall, I would recommend this book if you are looking for proof that tithing will bless you.
