A carefully selected list of books on topics of stewardship and personal finance.
G. Edward Reid answers the following questions from the biblical record and the counsels of the Spirit of Prophecy: Just where is the storehouse today? And even if I knew where it was, do I have to turn in all my tithe there, or can I use my own discretion and return my tithe as I see best? What should I do with my tithe if I sincerely believe that those charged with the responsibility of distributing the tithe are not doing so in a responsible manner? If I know of an independent ministry that is doing good work that I want to support, can I send my tithe to them? Isn't that a gospel ministry?
The encounter with God in the Bible is life-changing. To really get to know God through His Word, however, you have to read the Bible for yourself. This book shows you how to do this in very practical steps. This Bible-reading plan leads you through the entire Bible in one year. It is designed in such a way that you can start reading your Bible at any time. In order not to forget precious thoughts that come to your mind while reading the Bible, you can jot them down every day. Looking back to see what thoughts of Scripture accompanied you throughout the year is a fascinating and encouraging experience.
