Format: Paperback
Any manifestation of God's grace, even His law, is a gift (James 1:17).

A decade ago Michael Horton emphatically stated: 'That is why, throughout this book we will make a conscious effort to see these commandments not merely as stones to throw at secular society, but as a witness to our unfaithful record at the end of the 20th century.' Horton starts out by immediately directing our attention to important distinctions that have now become blurred, e.g. God's revealed will and God's secret will; the sustainability of the moral (God's) law and the passing of the Jewish ceremonial and civil law; the confusion between the gospel and civil 'righteousness', as set forth by J Gresham Machen a century ago; and the false dichotomy created repeatedly between the Spirit and the Word, as if they had competing agendas. 'Only the Spirit can take those dead in trespasses and sins (Eph 2:1) and make them alive. And once one is made alive, he or she is able to respond positively and affectionately to the law of God for the first time.' p 26

Throughout the Bible sin and its consequences are depicted in uncompromising terms. Israel's failure to walk before God alone and forsake her unfaithful ways brought God remorse. 'We cannot be expected to put God at the centre of our existence if He is not at the center of our theological system.' p 76 Yet that is precisely what happened. "There is no hesed (covenant loyalty), no love, no acknowledgment of God in the land." Hosea 4:1 Horton recounts the enormity of the consequences this had on Israel as a nation, as divine judgment followed.

Though they were a people under the law, Israel was still expected to maintain the spiritual relation presupposed by the patriarchs in the covenant of grace.

Very easy to read, deep in its teaching, not a list of dont's but rather thorough exposition of Ex 20.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ben W on July 11, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I liked this book, it really went after the heart attitudes & what is positively required by the commandments, not just forbidden. It was like a huge expansion on the Shorter Catechism. Unfortunately, he believes in the 9 commandments, greatly weakening this book (Lord's Day).

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Luke B. on May 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
Though I didn't agree with everything he wrote; I did find his applications pointed, interpretation to be in depth, and the book very well written. I ordered other books dealing with the Decalog and believe this to be far and away the best. For the pastor preaching through Ex 20 this book is a great resource.
