TheyŐre often mistakenly considered GodŐs ŇrulesÓŃhis outdated list of doŐs and donŐts that add up to a guilt-ridden, legalistic way of life. But as beloved author and Bible scholar J. I. Packer probes the purpose and true meaning of the Ten Commandments, youŐll discover that these precepts can aptly be called GodŐs blueprint for the best life possible. They contain the wisdom and priorities everyone needs for relational, spiritual, and societal blessingŃand itŐs all coming from a loving heavenly Father who wants the best for his children.
Not only does Packer deliver these truths in brief, readable segments, but he includes discussion questions and ideas for further study at the end of each chapter. This book will challenge you to view the commandments with new eyes and help you to understandŃperhaps for the first timeŃthe health, hope, and heritage youŐre offered there.
