Product Description

This book, the first in the Great Texts series from Abingdon, offers a preaching commentary on the Ten Commandments, which includes exegetical and homiletical resources for the pastor. Holbert seeks to provide the context for the commandments and their relationship to other parts of the Hebrew Bible. He also seeks to show how the New Testament writers viewed and used the Ten Commandments, as well as the history of their influence in both Christian and Jewish communities. Walter Brueggemann calls this book a "mediation between critical background and contemporary pertinence" and a "welcome addition" to the corpus of publications about the Ten Commandments.

Overview of The Great Texts: The Ten Commandments: A Preaching Commentary by John Holbert:
  • Part of the Great Texts series
  • Covers both versions of the Ten Commandments (Exodus and Deuteronomy), comparing and contrasting each version and explaining the differences
  • Theologically conservative (Reformed Evangelical)
  • Uses the author's own translation
  • A verse-by-verse (commandment by commandment) exposition of the Ten Commandments
  • Non-technical (no knowledge of Hebrew necessary)
  • Geared primarily for pastors

Publisher's Description

Many resources have been written to offer assistance in exploring and understanding the lectionary texts for the purpose of preaching. However, few have sought to provide this kind of preaching commentary on texts that do not follow the lectionary's grouping. For those whose preaching does not customarily follow the lectionary, and for those who depart from the lectionary text during certain periods of the year, little guidance has been offered for how to select, and preach on, important biblical texts.

The Ten Commandments: A Preaching Commentary, the first book in The Great Texts series, gives guidance to preachers on preaching about this central part of faith. The principles by which volumes in The Great Texts series have been chosen are primarily two-fold: (1) Thematic: Texts on certain overarching themes or ideas of the Christian faith are brought together; (2) Biblical/traditional: Texts that have long been recognized as belonging together, and as being particularly beneficial to the work of preaching.
