FC Publishing Releases New Book Debunking Church Tithing Traditions

If you pay ten percent of your income as a tithe in church every week, it may be the biggest Sunday morning stickup in history. Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway is a manifesto that exposes the real meaning of biblical tithing. Taking the first step to understand what tithing is could save your financial future and the future of your children's children for generations.


Madison, Ala. - Aug. 22, 2016 For Church-goers who are tired of being told they rob God of tithes and offerings every Saturday and Sunday and that God requires a tenth of their income until death, the new book opens the biblical scroll and shines a light on the truth of scripture by debunking centuries-old tithe doctrines, which say a tithe is ten percent of a person's income. Author, Dr. Frank Chase Jr. and theologian explains in his new book released August 14 why many Church-goers are not the ones who really rob God, and that the God robbers are religious leaders who misrepresent and misinterpret what the tithe is in the Bible. The book dissects the word tithe and places it back in its original scriptural context and explains its orthodox meaning. The real story of the book is that ten percent of a person's income does not represent a tithe, which is food, but a monetary ten percent is a tax for religious purposes. Signed copies of the book are at FC Publishing, LLC at Copies are available from the Publisher Book Baby at

The book was written to help people understand a familiar term in the Bible called tithing, so they will know how to properly interpret this biblical term that's been reinterpreted outside of its proper scriptural context. The book will end the confusion that exists about what certain words mean in the Bible, such as tithe, tithing, tenth or ten percent by using the Hebrew and Greek language to bring to life what these words actually mean. This book upends common beliefs held by many Christians that tithing is money. However, this book takes on the tithing doctrine and explains its true meaning based on the original people of the Bible and how they related to money. Kleptomaniac is a scholarly, theological and a proverbial archeological book that takes you on a trek into the land, language, and literature of the biblical people. It is a book that should be read by anyone interested in why church financial scandals happen. An educational book that tackles a religious taboo subject and adds more information to an under-saturated subject in the religious book world concerning tithing. This book is different from other books on tithing because the author brings to light the meaning of biblical words by explaining them from a Hebrew perspective. This is an instructional textbook on tithing that gives specific details to help all people understand the most complicated doctrines on religious tithing.

Respected author, theologian and tithing expert, Dr. Russell Earl Kelly, Ph.D. remarked in his book, Should the Church Teach Tithing? that, "true biblical tithing is narrowly limited to food and clean animals from land inheritance. Also, true biblical tithing was never extended to crafts, trades, and fish. Since Jesus was never a farmer, nor herdsman, he was not among those who were required to tithe."

About the Author:

Dr. Frank Chase, Jr. spent four years in the United States Army and after completing his tour of duty; he attended Washington State University (WSU) and graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and a minor in Sociology. Because the author believes in education, he pursued religious degrees and graduated from North Carolina College of Theology with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies, a Master of Arts in Theology, and a Doctor of Theology. One Amazon reviewer wrote about the book Kleptomaniac: "One of the things I like most about this book is that is does not tell you not to support your local church; it educates us on the proper way to give. For all Christians, this should be a must read?" Frank is also the author of the book, False Roads to Manhood: What Women Need to Know: What Men Need to Understand. An Amazon reviewer wrote, "When I read False Roads to Manhood, it was hard to believe that this was the writer's first book. It is written in the caliber of a very well seasoned author. The information presented is valuable, and I believe that this book can even be used as a non-traditional sociology textbook. I couldn't read it quickly, because it is loaded with insight, information, and inspiration that I could only process bit by bit. Although it focuses on men, women will benefit from it as well. I highly recommend it to other readers interested in this subject matter."
