The Path To Wealth Book



This book was first published in 1888 with the complete title:

“The Path to Wealth; or, Light From My Forge.”

Revealed within the pages of this valuable book you’ll find powerful, timeless teachings regarding God’s money laws…






The teachings in this book are provided in a series of ‘talks’ that take place in a blacksmith shop over 100 years ago. The discussions include important insights into monetary principles from God’s Word; which continue to reveal to us today How to Acquire Wealth and Have Financial Success!

In this wealth and financial success book, author T.S. Linscott, shares the dynamic tithing truths that have helped thousands of others discover the ‘secret’ of supernatural growing prosperity.

To Tithe or Not to Tithe?

Tithing often causes a spirited debate over the power of giving in the lives of believers.

Are you a tither? Wealthy and successful people are found to give ten percent or more of their income to charity. Those who honor God with their tithe (10 percent of their income), have the right to stand on the promise that says:

“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse…

and prove me now, saith the Lord, if I will not open you the windows of heaven,

and pour out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

— Malachi 3:10


“Is TITHING the Missing ‘SECRET’ for Those Not Prospering?”

How many books and websites do you see about the ‘SECRET’ to this or that?

Well the interesting thing is: Tithing seems to be the missing secret for most people not yet prospering and not yet on the path to wealth.

Of course it is not really a secret, but the truth is, few pastors are teaching it and so it is a sort of a secret to most Christians. And then there are those believers who have been taught the powerful truths about tithing, but need to dig deeper into them until they catch a personal revelation of this biblical principle and begin to put it into practice and reap the benefits.

“Tithing seems to put a person in touch with some mysterious force that attracts money.”

— Norman Vincent Peale

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Thank you for being a seeker of the truth! And for stopping by today for a visit…

If you’ll give me a few moments more of your time, I’ll share a bit of my story and why I’ve had this book republished and made readily available for you…

From the moment I first heard my pastor read a quote from “THE PATH TO WEALTH,” it sparked something inside of me. I went searching online for info about the book and how to get a copy…

I found only three copies available at the time and purchased one.

After receiving my copy of “The Path to Wealth” I got even more stirred up about the power of the tithing message being shared by this author so many years ago. I think because of all the teaching I received over the years on the subject, I instantly connected with the simple and clear way this author presents tithing.

I love the fact that someone over 120 years ago was willing to step out and continue writing about this ‘touchy’ subject and point out that true wealth comes from being obedient to and partnering with God in our finances.

AND, as an active tither for years, having personally experienced the many benefits of tithing in my own life…

AND knowing tithing will bring the blessings of God into the lives of Christian believers, I feel it is a message that can’t be shared enough.

“The church needs today an AWAKENING and a REVIVAL on the subject of Systematic, Conscientious, Spiritual and Worshipful Giving.

It must understand that Giving is the Law of the Fountain-life.”

— Rev. John H. Vincent


Let me share some excerpts from the book…

“He promises money for money; you pay me a tenth, says God, and I will give you earthly and material blessings.”

“A good deal of our preaching, our thinking, and even our devotions, either vaporize or spiritualize God’s promises. Our natural unbelief tends to put off the fulfillment of them until we get to heaven or sometime in the future. Unbelief hates literal and present tense promises. But these promises are literal and material; they are for here and now; they are to be enjoyed on earth; they challenge us to a contract or bargain with God.

As stated before, He promises money for money; you pay me a tenth, says God, and I will give you earthly and material blessings. I will give your fingers skill as mechanics; I will incline employers toward you; you shall get the highest wages; strikes shall not affect you; I am with you, and will see that you are provided for.

I will make you prosperous as businessmen; I will incline you where you can make good bargains; I will send the people around to you to buy; while the man next door, who neglects My cause may become bankrupt, this curse shall not touch you. I will look out for your bills when they are coming due; I will see that your bank account is sufficiently large; in a word, I am your partner and will look out for the interests of your business.

And to you thinkers, who earn your living by your brains, I will make your thoughts clear; I will give you the holy impulse to originate ‘thoughts which breathe, and words which burn;’ your productions shall stir men’s hearts; your works shall be in demand; I will make people buy the productions of your heart and brain; only pay me your tenth, and you shall be cared for.

Seed time and harvest shall never fail you farmers; I will bless your crop; I will multiply your stock; the blight and the mildew shall be kept from your farms; remember, I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; I will do to you as I did to them, only remember me as they did.

I will give health to all of you; death shall not take away your little ones; they shall live to a ripe old age; I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

These are the blessings promised by God in the Bible. Who among this company will this day pledge his tenth to God?

(Excerpt from pages 80-81 of The Path to Wealth)

“Are You Tired of Going in Circles Where Your Finances are Concerned?”

In days of economic uncertainty, it is important for everyone to get a working knowledge of truth to prosper.

You can prosper by using God’s spiritual principles in your finances!

The source of all financial abundance is God and with Him there are no limits. Trouble is, too many people are slow to learn the principles that will cause them to excel financially.

Get your thinking clear on how to work them and you’ll no longer use words like recession, poverty, and lack.

In order to receive financial abundance from God, we must do our part. If we do our part, He’ll do His part and meet our needs according to His riches in glory.

Most people don’t like to hear about tithing and it puts them in fear. But you’ll have no problem tithing if you see God as your source of supply.

The tithe is seed money of wealth and is compared to sowing. The more a person gives, the more that person receives. Financial prosperity is one benefit of tithing. It puts us in partnership with God.

We are told to bring the tithes into God’s house and then test Him and see if He does not open the windows of heaven and pour out such a blessing on us that we don’t have room enough to contain it! (Malachi 3:10)

Tithing is a step of  obedience and trust that God will take care of our finances. God promises to pour out a blessing to the tither.

T.S. Linscott says:

“Tithing is associated in the same rank of merit as
prayer and devotion,
as justice and honesty, as virtue and chastity.”

I truly believe tithing is a key to living a godly, successful, and prosperous Christian life.

“The man who does anything without system is a weak man, and is blown about by every wind and swayed by every feeling;

but a man who has a system and then works to it, always knows what he is doing, and stands a better chance of success.”
— T.S. Linscott


The Path to Wealth book has been republished and is now easily available in an affordable print version.

In it many of the common questions people have about tithing are addressed and answered, such as:


  • Is Tithing Still For Us Today?
  • Who Should Tithe?
  • Is a Person In Debt Obligated to Tithe?
  • If God is the Source of All Supply, Why Does He Need My Money?
  • Where Should the Tithe Be Given?
  • How is the Tithe Calculated?


In The Path to Wealth, Linscott also points out many of the biblical advantages of tithing.

Instead of listing them for you now…

Let me share another excerpt from the book that highlights the great advantage of tithing…


“Our communion with God, and our fellowship with saints and angels is made more precious than by any other means whatever.”

“But the great advantage of tithing, as intimated in my last talk in the blacksmith shop, is in obedience to God, and this draws a man nearer to God than all things beside. It causes a man to take God as companion and guide; it develops confidence in God; help after help is accorded to such a man day after day, all the days of his life, and signal business victories are given to him.

He is enabled to overcome difficulties which he thought were insurmountable; he sees, in the progress of his business, God’s guiding and delivering hand, and this adds to his faith courage and love. He approximates more and more to ‘the mind which is in Christ Jesus,’ as his dealings become more and more familiar with God our Father.

Obedience to God’s laws brings us nearer the spirit world. Our communion with God, and our fellowship with saints and angels is made more precious than by any other means whatever. If a Christian is in any measure disobedient, the heavens seem as brass, he cannot penetrate them with his prayers; but when all the tithes are brought into the store house, the windows of heaven are opened and rich spiritual blessings descend upon his soul.

I strongly advise you, dear friends, to test this matter for yourselves. God distinctly challenges every one of you to make the test, saying, ‘prove Me herewith.’ I would strongly advise you to commence here and now the practice of ‘Systematic Giving.’ Devote a tenth of your income to God and benevolence, and the richest blessings of heaven and earth shall be yours.”

(Excerpt from pages 101-102 of The Path to Wealth)


It is my earnest wish and prayer, just as it was of the original author, that this book may be productive of good, and lead many a person to ‘bring all the tithes into the storehouse’ in response to the demand of God.

“Where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

— Luke 12:34

May you be blessed to be a blessing!

God bless you –

P.S. I have one more quote before you go…


“If it be true that both material and spiritual blessing follow the giving up of substance to the Lord’s work then, I think, it is safe to say that
ninety cents is better with God’s blessing
than one hundred cents without it.”

— T.S. Linscott,
