Alistair Begg begins by outlining the threefold use of the law: 1. The Civil or Political Function of the Law, 2. The Pedagogical Function of the Law, and 3. A Rule of Life for Believers. The following two poems encapsulate the essence of the law, not for justification, but as an expression of our lives once we have been justified:
When once the fiery Law of God
Has chas’d me to the Gospel Road;
Then back unto the holy law
Most kindly Gospel-grace will draw.

Not the labors of my hands
Could fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

The rest of the book is spent going through each of the Ten Commandments (one per chapter), discussing their relevance and application to our lives today as Christians.
