Can we really expect an ancient list of do's and don'ts to apply to life in the twentyfirst century? J. John believes that far from being outdated or irrelevant God's ten commandments represent the best compass for a society that is lost in a thick moral fog. Imagine a world where people loved each other. What would it look like? How would people behave towards one another ...more

I love reading books about the Old Testament, especially ones which show clearly that God's revelation given in ancient times is entirely relevant to us today. Books like these help to show us that God's Word stands the test of time and we would do well to soak ourselves in the whole counsel of His truth (reading the New as well as the Old Testament).

One of the points John brings up about the third commandment that I have only ever heard one other preacher touch on, is that to use God's name in

Set aside (not a library book). Will read as devotional and not track

The 10 commandments, from ten to 1. Kind of a 'chart count down' of commandments. There is also an accompanying study guide, but I won't cover that here. I read this book because we are planning to run 'Just 10' in September - November 2010.
Each commandment is looked at using a similar approach. A detailed discussion of the problems caused by not following the commandment followed by some suggestions about how following the commandment may be achieved more successfully.

I am about 60% through this book. To be honest, I'm finding it a bit of a slow and difficult read. In some of the Commandments, there's too much explanation, but in others, there's nowhere near enough!

For instance, the 5th Commandment to honour your father and mother. I come from a broken and dysfunctional environment. My mum left when I was 3. I grew up with my Dad and step mum, with far too much rejection and neglect. We see each other maybe 3x a year but otherwise aren't involved in each oth

This book is very good...

There is a lot in there! I loved the way J. John worked through the Commandments backwards, what a refreshing way to study them.

He draws so much out of each commandment as well; the implications that are more far reaching about our heart attitudes and how each command speaks to those attitudes.

Worth a read, and a study!

Practical; explains how the 10 Cs still apply today and why they are still important. Can read it over and over again, putting it into practice is going to take a lifetime.

This is an excellent book for individual or small group study. The commandments were given not to enslave us but to set us free to live in harmony with God and others.
Carl Palmer
An incredible practical guide to putting the ten commandments into practice.
Brilliant study guide for personal and group use.
