James Kennedy points out the oft-forgotten importance of following God's law. As Christians, we tend to place all the importance in the Gospel and tend to neglect the fact that "faith without works is dead". To show our gratitude for God's grace, we should desire to follow his commands. Kennedy explains the commandments in modern terms with examples to show how we might not think of all the applications of God's commands.

This book would have been a very excellent read if it weren't for the author's claim that Jesus changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. Nothing in the Bible says that. ...more

A very good, readable book that is enlightening to Christian and unbeliever alike. The book was written in 2005.

As I was reading the book, the news came out that the Presbyterian church, the denomination of D. James Kennedy,announced its support for gay marriage, allowing gay marriages to be conducted in its churc ...more

The book starts off strong but then it seems to lose it's direction. It has many good points but they don't fit the points they are listed under. For example a section in chapter nine goes way of base. It talks more about not walking in the fullness of your salvation than stealing. Some of the prayers are inconsistent with the topics they're listed under as well. Dr. Kennedy has a lot of heart and he does make many good and valid points however it is overall inconsistent and goes off topic at ti ...more

This guy is harsh. He's irritated with Born to Shop bumper stickers and then goes so far to answer the question of "why did my child die?" with "you took the Lords name in vain". Still am not sure what exactly that commandment means. This book didn't explain it well. ...more
