KLEPTOMANIAC is a journey into the annuals of biblical history concerning what the Bible teaches about tithing and giving and exposes the centuries-old question, does God want or need my money.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway? The Untwisted Truth About the Centuries Old Tithes and Offering Deception examines the history of church tithes, a practice from the early days of Christianity which takes a darker turn as its history and connections to actual Scripture are probed from its original applications to modern times. But if readers expect a supportive Scripture-based emphasis on the value of tithes, it should be advised that Kleptomaniac does not toe a party line of religious propriety but offers a sobering and critical examination of the notion of tithes and how it has changed over the centuries.
The message of the book is that ten percent of a person's income does not represent a biblical tithe. The biblical tithe has always been edible items. A monetary tithe of ten percent represents a tax for religious purposes. A true biblical tithe is narrowly limited to food and clean animals from inside the land of Israel. Also, true biblical tithing was never extended to crafts or trades, and since Jesus was never a farmer, nor headsman, he was not required to tithe.
Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway is an educational book that tackles the religious taboo subject such of monetary tithing and presents information about an under-saturated subject in the book world concerning tithing. The book is a scholastic, theological work and should be read by anyone who has skepticism about the truth and accuracy of the modern monetary tithe system that is not contained on the pages of the Bible.

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."
