Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jani Ortlund has once again written a convicting work for women seeking after God. She clearly and thoughtfully demonstrates the powerful relevance the commandments hold for Christians who seek holiness by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Mary K. Mohler, Director, Seminary Wives Institute; Wife of R. Albert Mohler Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Any parent or adult who ministers to children will find here a rich curriculum for themselves and for their children."
Tasha Chapman, Associate Dean of Student Life; Adjunct Professor of Educational Ministries, Covenant Theological Seminary

"Takes us right to the heart of God and offers biblical principles for us to practice and to pass on to our children so that we may live according to God's law."
Margi Galloway, Minister to Women, Scottsdale Bible Church, Scottsdale, Arizona

"Jani Ortlund blows the dust off the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. Written with the wisdom and insight gained through a lifetime of teaching God's Word and raising four children who love the Lord, His Loving Law, Our Lasting Legacy equips readers not only to see themselves in the revealing light of God's Law, but also to guide children into loving God with their lives."
Nancy Guthrie, Bible Teacher; author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series

Format: Paperback
Jani Ortlund has written this book with mothers who are raising children in mind. Her purpose is to help women learn to delight in God through his law and to help them pass on that love for God to their children.

What do you think about the Ten Commandments? Many of us, I'd say, tend to think of them in either of two ways, both of them wrong. We think of them as a list of very demanding rules that we need to keep in order to become righteous, or we think of them as a list of very demanding rules that no longer, since we are new covenant people, have any relevance for us.

Jani Ortlund argues that God's law has three purposes for us today. First, it leads us to the Saviour because it shows us our sin. Second, the law helps us understand who God is. And third, the law is a guide to those who are being saved through Christ, because it shows what living the like-Christ life looks like.

His Loving Law has an introduction, a conclusion, and ten chapters, each chapter examining one of the Ten Commandments. The chapters end with two sections of study questions and activities. One section is for the woman herself, to help her consider how she might live out each specific commandment, and the other contains suggested questions and activities for children to help mothers give each commandment to their children.

In the chapter on the sixth commandment, for instance, we learn that the command "You shall not murder" prohibits us from taking human life, but also includes positive expectations of us along with that prohibition. At its core, it's a call to value and protect human life, or using Jani Ortlund's words, "we obey this command by being life giving to others, rather than life depleting.

This book was an added resource as I am teaching a ladies class on the Ten Commandments. Very relevant for all times and speaks to the importance of teaching the Ten Commandments to our children. We live in a time where many believe the Ten Commandments are no longer important, but it is the exact opposite. A loving God gave us these laws to show us how to relate to Himself first and then in all of our relationships. Good stuff!
