Tithing - Leblanc

To write the book "Tithing" Leblanc travels around America and interviews a number of different people who are living out a commitment to tithing. 

Rather than a biblical or theological treatise on why we should practice tithing, Leblanc shares stories.  In many ways this creates a very effective way of talking about this neglected spiritual practice.

At times it can seem that there is a 1 to 1 relation between tithing and being blessed by God.  But I think that Leblanc does a good job of making the point that we are not supposed to tithe so that God will bless us, but rather tithing is a way that we experience more of what it means to live in relationship with a giving God.

Some of the interviews are better than others, but in the end it is a good read and sure to challenge some to start giving more.
