Tithing: Why People Give

Most academic and church-based conversations about faith and money focus on the needs of churches and the work they do to meet budgets. These top-down concerns do not excite the people who worship in churches because the discussion usually consists of instruction about “how much should be given.” In this interview on the Resources for American Christianity website, Robert Wood Lynn examines the historical patterns of American church-based giving, and presents his ideas about what needs to be done to change the conversation to get at the heart of why people give as they do.
