The Law of Perfect Freedom: Relating to God and Others through the Ten Commandments Paperback – January 1, 2004

In The Law of Perfect Freedom, Michael Horton weaves theological truth with practical application to help believers live out the Ten Commandments. Understanding how to live out these commandments brings vitality and victory to our walk with God.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
The Bible, particularly the Ten Commandments, calls us to discover our obligations to God and to our neighbor and society. It calls the people of God to their posts in society, not as a special interest group demanding its rights alongside everyone else, but as called-out men and women who have a heavy sense of moral duty-not to save their own souls, for that is by grace apart from works, but to bring glory and honor to that gracious King.

Three stars - it's okay. It appeals to reformed theology historical documents more than I would have wished to make whatever case they happen to be making. I'd have preferred less of that and more cross referencing the Scriptures. I'd recommend Philip Ryken's "Set in Stone" over this work, although both are heavy on Calvin and Westminster Catechism quotations.

A fantastic read. Although theological in content, it reads like a story. Thanks to Mike Horton for a wonderful work.. I recommend it highly.

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

OK book, although not life changing for me. I've had a lot of issues in my life at that time and was looking for help in various Christian literature; however, I have found little help if any at all from this book.
