Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway?

By Frank Chase Jr


"An invaluable resource for anyone looking to gain a greater comprehension of the act of tithing as well as its significance in today's culture."

An eye-opening and instructive book that pushes the reader to reassess their view of tithing and donating.


Frank Chase Jr., has written a book that challenges the centuries-old doctrines on tithes and offerings. This book is thought-provoking and well researched. The author guides the reader on a journey through the pages of the Bible to discover the truth about tithing, and each page is packed with facts that will cause the reader to question whether or not they have a proper knowledge of the concept.

According to the instructions given in the Bible, the first part of the book offers a definition of the word “tithe” and a breakdown of the differences between giving and tithing. The author debunks what the majority of people accept as truth in order to bring them to what the Bible in actuality teaches about what it means to give generously. This book addresses some difficult subjects, such as whether or not God ever required a tithe of money. In the Old Testament, did the tithe always consist of monetary offerings? Who exactly is cheating God in this day and age? When it comes to the tithe, did God ever make any adjustments throughout the course of biblical history? Do the early fruits amount to money? The tithe may consist of either food, money, or both. Is the church supposed to serve as a repository? Did Jesus, Paul, and the disciples observe the practise of tithing? Did the early church practise a system of tithing using money? To what extent does the failure of Christians to tithe ten percent of their income bring about a curse?

The author performs a painstaking analysis of the word tithe in the Hebrew and Greek languages in order to gain an understanding of each and every Bible text that uses the word tithe. For the sake of better understanding of the text, the book provides both background and definitive definitions. This book also explains the concept of giving from the perspective of the New Testament without the mandate of ten percent, and it uncovers the reason why the Apostle Paul never discussed or taught tithing to congregations that were under the authority of the New Bible.

Frank devotes a sizeable portion of its content to explaining to readers the distinction between tithes and money by providing specific examples of its use throughout the Bible. The book is an exposé that investigates how the current theory of tithing came into being and who the perpetrators were who played a key part in what churches teach today. Tithing is a practise in which believers give 10% of their income to the local church. The book raises concerns about the financial impact that modern tithing practises have on individuals, as well as the ways in which these practises differ from those that were common in the past.

The author analyses and evaluates both the tithing and non-tithing theological camps during the course of the book, and then draws conclusions and recommendations for the reader, so that they are able to make an educated decision about how they will give in the future. This book casts doubt on the commonly held conceptions of the tithe and raises concerns about the viability of the practises that are already in place. This is especially relevant when times are difficult economically for individuals who might not be able to offer too much.

Everything in the book, from the very first chapter all the way through to the last, is backed up by scripture and research. The author of the book, Dr. Frank Chase Jr., based it on his own personal experience of what occurred as a consequence of adhering to the giving principles outlined in the New Testament that are found in the New Covenant. This book discusses the tithe in the Old Testament and reveals what the New Testament teaches about giving by evaluating some of Apostle Paul’s epistles addressing his thoughts and directions on charitable giving. The Old Testament tithe is also discussed in this book.

Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway is, all in all, an eye-opening and instructive book that pushes the reader to reassess their view of tithing and donating. The book’s subtitle, “Who’s Actually Robbing God Anyway,” says it all. This book is not only well-written but also well-researched and thought-provoking; therefore, everyone who is interested in understanding the genuine meaning of giving as it is described in the Bible should read this book.

This is done in order to provide context and definite definitions for the sake of clarity in the text.

The author gives arguments from both the tithing and non-tithing theological camps, presenting analysis and conclusions so that readers can make an informed choice about how they will contribute in the future. The writing style is instructive and analytical. As additional evidence to support their interpretations, the author provides research as well as language and literature from the people who originally wrote the Bible.
