The Ten Commandments. No other document has done more to shape the values of Western civilization. And yet, God's rules remain no less controversial today than when Moses presented his infamous stone tablets to the nation of Israel. Even now, their role in our courts and schools is under scrutiny and has sparked heated debate. But just as important as this public discussion is a more private question: How well do I live by the Ten Commandments?
To help you answer this question and better understand its public ramifications, author and pastor Michael Horton has written this comprehensive guide to the origin, significance, and social impact of God's rules for mankind. In it he weaves together theological truth and practical application to challenge readers to delve deeper into their understanding of what it means to live lives steeped in the wisdom of the Ten Commandments. With a foreword by distinguished scholar J. I. Packer, this is an insightful book you don't want to miss!
Michael S. Horton is professor of Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary in California and president of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. He is the author of more than a dozen books, and lives in Escondido, California with his wife, Lisa, and four children.
