KLEPTOMANIAC, Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway is a trek through the pages of the Bible to find the untwisted truth about the centuries-old false teachings on tithes and offerings. Every page of this book has information that will make you become an analyst in getting to the bottom line of what tithing is in the Old and New Testament. It takes you on a journey to first define the word tithe and then breaks down the differences between giving and tithing as the Bible instructs. The author attempts to expose what most people believe as fact to bring them to what the Bible actually teaches when it comes to true giving. Are the arguments put forth today about tithing fact or fiction? This book tackles tough questions like, did God ever require a tithe of money? Was the contents of the tithe always money in the Bible? Who is really robbing God today? Did God change the tithe at some point in biblical history? Are first fruits money? Is the tithe food, money or both? Is the church the storehouse? Did Jesus, Paul and the Disciples tithe? Did the early church honor a money tithe system? Are Christians really cursed for not tithing ten percent of their income? These questions will be answered based on scholarship, the land, the language and the literature of the original Biblical people. Not only will questions be answered for those confused about whether or not they are required to pay ten percent of their income to religious institutions, they will learn what the Bible really teaches about money and stewardship. The author meticulously examines the word tithe in both the Hebrew and Greek language. To understand every Bible verse that contains the word tithe, the author gives context and definitive definitions for clarity of the text. This book also explains the concept of giving from a New Testament perspective without the mandate of ten percent and explains why the Apostle Paul never mentioned tithing to any of the New Testament congregations. From Genesis to Revelation, this book is about how to properly interpret biblical terms to arrive at the proper interpretation of a biblical text that refers to money or tithing.
Horace Williams, Jr.’s non-fiction Christian Worship and Prayer book, Unleash the Power of Prayer in Your Life: A Power that Transforms Lives, briefly and eloquently explores the benefits of prayer and the richness of having a personal relationship with God.
I was moved by his story and appreciated how he shared his own experiences throughout the book to help the reader absorb the import of his message. Williams answers a lot of the questions that many have about what prayer actually is if it works, and why it may seem like God is not listening — when in fact He really is.
The Scriptures Williams quotes work quite well with his topics, and the PowerPoint summaries are a great way to make sure you’ve gotten the full message of the chapter. As Williams states, prayer is much more than just repeating Hail Marys or The Lord’s Prayer repeatedly.
A careful and reflective reading of this work will give the motivated reader a good starting point for establishing their relationship with God. Unleash the Power of Prayer in Your Life: A Power that Transforms Lives is most highly recommended.

The way writing in my genre is different from others is that my genre removes your personal opinion out of the way and it primarily focuses on facts and truth. Talking about Religion and Faith always makes the writer take the stance of a narrator rather than a dictator.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
The advice I would give aspiring writers is to be honest and relevant in their writing. Readers can tell if a writer is genuine in delivering the message they are trying to present. Our readers respect honesty and it is our responsibility to provide this service. Being relevant is highly important because it make the information that is being distributed applicable for the current times we live in.
Fountain Hendricks was born in Chicago, IL. He was raised in a Christian house-hold. He was a young man driven by worldly morality which prevented him from living underneath the power of the Holy Ghost. Through experience and many failures he has gained understanding and knowledge on how to exhibit Godly character. Going to church became a ritual for him but God never became the center focus of his life until he had a “Damascus” moment in his mid-twenties. The Lord spoke to Fountain in a loud voice through his transition of condition. After being isolated from love ones, betrayed by those whom he was familiar with and being separated from everything that was common he discovered that God allowed this to happen for a reason.
The Lord was calling Fountain out of deception and darkness to live in the truth and light of holiness. Fountain realized that he was serving God under the influence of religion, tradition and commonality which empowered him to inherit misfortune but the Lord gave him clarity, understanding and great wisdom. This experience allowed him to see that “Becoming holy” is the difference between practicing Christian ethics and Christian character. Becoming holy has allowed him to live a joyful, purposeful, exciting and influential life. The Lord has placed him in a position to teach and nurture others on how to live a life, modeling Jesus internally and externally.
The Holy Spirit inspired me to write this book. This book contains powerful and illuminating wisdom that will help people achieve their individual greatness in Christ.
