Author
Paul H Spohn
Abstract
The purpose of this project is to examine the concept, teaching, and biblical understanding of tithing in relation to Lutheran theology. A large number of Lutherans were interviewed and tested as to their knowledge and attitude toward tithing and stewardship. After an examination of the materials in terms of the historical context, with an emphasis on Luther's scholarship, conclusions were presented and a retreat was designed. The retreat affirmed tithing from a perspective of Christian love.
