I can tell the author put a lot of thought and work into writing this book. He did an excellent job of that. Past that I cannot agree with him. First his approach of tithing in the New Testament is not biblically accurate. We live not under the law now but by grace. It still applies.
The concept of the church becoming involved as a worldly business to support itself is a sacrilege to me. The focus will be on money and possessions, not its true calling. The church is not building and assets, it is the people. Is it possible that some churches like individuals have stepped over the boundaries of what they can afford and now cannot maintain it? Yes the church needs an adequate building, classrooms, lights, heating, the basics but beyond that no. It is there to spread God’s Word and Christ’s sacrifice, not have all the latest technology, impressive decorations, etc. To say that God will not provide for the church’s NEEDS is offensive. Yes “needs”, not wants. God does and He will. My husband pastored a small church for 21 ½ years before he died and I still attend there. In number we are on the small side still, and no not all our member’s tithe, but the church has been functioning a alive for 36 years now. The miracles we have seen in God’s provision is nothing short of amazing. When I great need arises God has always miraculously provided, many times to the exact cent. It grieves me to think that God’s church would turn away from complete faith in His promises to take things into their own hands.
I received this book from Baker Publishing in exchange for an honest review. The opinions stated are my own. ( )

I suspect the target audience for The Coming Revolution in Church Economics by Mark DeYmas and Harry Li consists of pastors, elders, and those in financial leadership of a church. I am none of those. While someone with a more vested interest in the topic might find the book more engaging, I understood what the authors were saying. I thought the authors did an excellent job of explaining their positions on the statements they made. They addressed common assumptions/arguments made against what they propose. Overall, it’s a thought-provoking read about church economics.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own. ( )
