Perhaps you’ve felt like the rich young ruler.

He came to Jesus asking what he should do to gain eternal life. Pointing him to the commandments, Jesus led him, yet, “all these I have kept from my youth” (Luke 18:21) he declares.

Then, Jesus extends an invitation: sell everything, and follow me.

The man he just addressed as “good teacher,” presents him with a bold summons. A step of humility, obedience and trust, revealing it wasn’t so much about the rules, as it was about the desires of the heart

Ten Words to live by. Ten words to show us the pattern of Christlikeness and to stir in us a longing for the kingdom to come. Ten words to convict us, to shape us, and to give us hope. Ten words that Jesus came not to abolish, but to fulfill. Though for us they are prohibitions, for Jesus they proved prophetic. The Ten words rest like a benediction from the Father to the Son on the eve of carnation.
You shall have no gods before me.
You shall not make a graven image.
You shall not take my name in

In this new book, Jen Wilkin takes a deep dive into the Ten Commandments and shows how the commandments are not irrelevant to Christians today. She looks at each of the commands and provides historical context to help the readers understand why God instructed His people to follow that particular command. She also applies each of the commands to our modern way of life in a way that is both gently convicting and thought-provoking. By the end of the book, Wilkin makes it clear that the Ten Commandm ...more

Jen Wilkin's new book, Ten Words to Live By, is for anyone who would like to dig deeper into the Ten Commandments. As a companion to my bible, I read Exodus while using this book as a guide to each of these teachings. I was truly impressed by Ms. Wilkin's knowledge and expertise on the subject. Her insight opened my eyes to so much that I had not considered before. I will highly recommend this lovely book for those hoping to enhance their relationship with Christ and His word. Thank you NetGalle ...more

Another homerun of a book from Jen Wilkin. If you like and are familiar with Wilkin's pervious books, this one will fit right in. It is an in depth look at the 10 Commandments from a wholistic Biblical perspective. Wilkin dives deep into what the Commandments mean and what they do not mean. There is a final refrain in each chapter that when we follow the commandments, we are bringing God's kingdom here on earth. The follow up Biblical passages and question do a great job of bringing the truth of ...more

10 Words to Live By links each of the Ten Commandments with teachings by Christ in the New Testament. The book gives an eye-opening look at how these commandments are still applicable to our faith today. Interesting and challenging!
