The payment of tithes is one of the most controversial topics in the Christian world today. While some people believe that paying tithes is compulsory for every Christian, others do not agree with this. In The Tithe by Derek M. Cranstoun Sr., the author logically and intelligently breaks down this topic. With references to notable Biblical events and verses, he analyzed this topic and showed why tithing is not an obligation for every Christian. Grab a copy of this book to join him as he carefully explains this notion.
One thing I look out for in the analysis of any argument is how logical it is. This author was very logical in presenting his stance on this topic, and I enjoyed every bit of it. Using references from Bible verses and biblical events, he built this topic from scratch. I loved how every reference properly aligned with whatever he was talking about at the moment. His style of writing is precise and clear, and it was easy to grasp the points he was making.
I also loved how he arranged his arguments in chronological order, starting with the argument between the Apostles in the Temple. The author’s logic is top-notch, and I liked how he presented his points. He did not just lay out his points; he also tried to educate the readers. Before reading this book, I always believed that paying tithes was an obligation for me as a Christian, but this book opened my eyes to new knowledge.
The only thing I may not have liked was that this book left me with unanswered questions. I wish that there was a way to ask the author these curious questions that were sparked while reading this book. I found minor errors in this book, but they were not enough to disrupt my reading.
The dislikes are not sufficient to remove a star from this book’s perfect rating, so I am going to rate it 5 out of 5 stars. This book was professionally edited. I recommend this book to Christians as a whole, but specifically to Christians who want to have more knowledge on the topic. I think the teachers in the clergy should also grab a copy of this book for better enlightenment on the topic.
