The political hijacking of theological language and God's prerogatives is always a danger. In this perceptive study, an Old Testament theologian sets these issues in the context of the Ten Commandments, and especially the First Commandment. From that statement of God's person, work, and expectations of loyalty, Miller articulates the modern challenge of faithful living in a complex world with complex choices. As he states it, the abiding problem has been "the coalescence of God and country, the takeover of the language of faith in the speech of politics, and the confusion of loyalty with obedience."
