In The Ten Commandments: Ethics for the Twenty-First Century 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. Rooker then moves on to consider the theological importance of the Commandments and what they mean in our context today.
