The book’s title stood out. I wanted to get into depth about the reason why God was a genius when it came to finances. While I thought I would receive profound religious and spiritual lessons, things were easy and better. Cynthia begins by informing us how she got into tithing and how it has enhanced her life. God and faith are the roots of this book. And while tithing is essential, the author profoundly states the purpose for doing it. When we do so, we plant a seed and let God take care of our lives. And in times like this, when the economy is rough for most people, these words resonated with me immensely.
The author breaks down the book into seven concise chapters. Each contains personal experiences and biblical quotes. Tithing unlocks shut doors, and God provides more and better opportunities for us. Then there were more reflective teachings about Jesus Christ and how his death liberated humankind.
One thing I truly enjoyed was the use of the author’s personal experiences. To be particular, Cynthia detailed her first breakthrough when she began tithing. She was earning a $900 monthly salary and decided to start tithing 10% of it, and better things began to happen. She got a second job and then a third one that was better paying with the inclusion of bonuses. That’s the power of faith!
Another thing I appreciated was that each chapter was precise and straightforward. For example, chapter seven talks about gratitude. When you sow a seed through tithing, you ask your request to God in faith and humility, and you will get it. Cynthia advises us to be joyful because it is a “spiritual force.” In the Bible, Job is a definitive example of that, and God promised joy to those who’d obey and serve Him.
The author includes many biblical excerpts about what she discusses. For instance, when Cynthia talks about reasons for tithing, she inserts a quote from the Bible with the book, chapter, and verse. To avoid making the book dull, once she details her lessons, she gives a personal past or recent experience. Hardly did I take my eyes off the book.
God: The Financial Genius by Cynthia Flynn is well edited. I say so because I detected no grammatical errors. I did not identify any reason to despise it. I rate it 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend it to people who’d appreciate a deeper understanding of tithing.
