An internal Southern Baptist squabble has brought to my attention two previously unnoticed papers on the subject of tithing.
“Will a Man Rob God?” (Malachi 3:8): A Study of Tithing in the Old and New Testaments
Reconstructing a Biblical Model for Giving: A Discussion of Relevant Systematic Issues and New Testament Principles
These are two parts of the same subject. The first deals with the Old and New Testament verses on tithing, and the second with principles used to support tithing and finally a suggestion for "a more excellent way": or as one of the writers put it -- "...the New Testament contains sufficient guidance for our giving". The papers are written by Andreas Köstenberger (Southeastern Seminary) and David A. Croteau (Liberty University).
A reader at Bart Barber's blog, commenting on the squabble, wrote, "If any good comes from this whole brouhaha, I hope it will be that a few people will read Croteau and Kostenberger's excellent paper." I hope so, too.
