This book outlines what the author believes to be ten important issues or concepts that merit discussion or at least some thought. Some are not new ideas by any stretch of the imagination, but may have been glossed over, over reported or covered and debated so much they may have lost their luster and are worth polishing up for a fresh roll in the brain. The others you will find enlightening if you happen to find yourself in "violation" for lack of a better word. Now with a new official title of "Commandment," perhaps some older but still relevant concepts may be revived and repaired and the new ideas understood and accepted. Let's face it; it's tough to get a new idea across anyone these days! But when it's a commandment... well how can you say no to a commandment? Though obviously not written by god himself, the wish is that after finishing the book you will agree that keeping 11 thru 20 in mind and executing the fundamental spirit of the script would not be a bad thing. Just like the original version! History has shown that nothing is fiercer than an aroused mind moving in the direction of positive change. The Bible is a magnificent book and reveals itself with the wonderful vernacular of the time. Like listening to the inflection and dialect delivered by the actors from a movie shot in the 1930's, turning the pages of the bible is like eaves dropping on another time. But unlike the thirties, these days most men don't call each other "Fella" "Mac" or "Daddy-o" as often as they once did. So to have been dropped words like begat, shalt, and thou. In the interest of smooth reading and less aspirin, Don too shalt... uh... shall leave the tradition speak of the day to the titles of the commandments only, and opt for an easier more casual discussion into their meaning.

In this new volume from the New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology series, Mark Rooker discusses one by one the language of each of the Ten Commandments and its complete meaning in the ancient context. Adding a depth of understanding that can’t be obtained by looking only at the commandment itself, he shows how each commandment echoes elsewhere in the Old Testament, how it was violated in Israel’s history, and how it surfaces again in the New Testament. In conclusion, Rooker includes an extended section on the theological significance of each commandment and its contemporary implications.

The Ten Commandments and Human Rights sets out to evaluate the importance of the Ten Commandments for the life of faith today. The general thesis is that the commandments are immensely important not only for Jews and Christians, but for all persons seeking to find or to reaffirm a moral foundation for their life and for the life of their children, their religious community, and their society.The fact that the commandments are put negatively is immensely important, for it means that the community that claims these commandments and builds on them has to work out for itself the positive import of not having other gods, not worshipping idols, not profaning the sabbath, not killing and stealing, and committing adultery. Put negatively, these commitments become the groundwork for a humanly free and responsible search for the will of God for individual, family, and corporate life today and in any day.It is true that the commandments originate in ancient Israel, are central to the faith of prophets, priests, and sages, and are claimed and made foundational by Jesus for the Christian community. But these commandments also share much with, for example, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which has been presented by the United Nations for adoption by all the nations of earth.The Ten Commandments and Human Rights seeks to show how to avoid moralistic use of the Ten Commandments in religious life today while still affirming that there are absolutely foundational prohibitions that can and must guide the moral life of all peoples. The Ten Commandments need very little revision in order to become such a foundation for a free and responsible life today.

For 2,000 years Western culture has leaned heavily on the Ten Commandments for guidance in religion, ethics, and morality. The author, drawing upon modern Biblical science, demonstrates that those laws were designed for an entirely different purpose--to provide alternatives to repressive policies Israel reeled under in Egypt. The Decalogue is a political document designed to limit government intrusion into private lives. Its precepts deal with matters like political parties and intellectual freedom, central banking and taxation, occupational choice, free economy, humane working conditions, local government, right to life and international relations, land possession and inheritance, equal justice and education, and citizenship and public health. The author's interpretation necessitates a wholesale repositioning of Biblical religion. The Bible is not a book about religious worship, but is rather a book about citizen-empowered local democracy. This essay suggests a way out of the woods for an American democracy that has lost its way in a headlong veer toward heavy-handed central government.

Written with the finger of God nearly 3,500 years ago, the Ten Commandments still provide GodOs moral standards and principles for worship. EWhile these laws were central to the people of the Old Testament, they remain vital to GodOs people today.E The Ten Commandments is a series of sermons preached from the pulpit of Ashley Baptist Church in Belding, Michigan.E These sermons explore several facets of each commandment, and at the same time provide the reader with a big picture statement and point of application. These messages on the Ten Commandments are "profitable" (II Tim.E3:16) for practical living, but most importantly, they point to the Jesus Christ as the Savior from sin (Gal.E3:24).E
