Publisher's Description

To most people living in today's world, the Ten Commandments represent archaic rules dictated by a taskmaster God, meant for a society long gone. Many see them as irrelevant, even unattainable, today. But what if we're not that different from those who gathered around Moses as he handed down God's Ten Words to his people? What if they were never meant to be a set of rules, but instead a promise of a covenant relationship? In Ten, Sean Gladding invites you into the story of John, a pastor who spends his mornings in a local coffee shop, as he engages the viewpoints of regular people who wonder at the relevance and meaning of those Ten Words today. Sit in on their lively, heart-felt conversations as they tackle each Word over a cup of coffee and realize the hope of God's promises to his chosen people—yesterday, today and forever.

Editorial Reviews

"I have read Ten with great interest. Two things in particular struck me. First the way Sean shows how the 'rules' are in the service of a relationship. And second, the way Sean weaves the commandments into real life situations with real people. The latter is a special pastoral gift." -- Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

"This is a book I'd be confident in suggesting to the wide variety of folks I serve. In fact, I'm fairly certain that Gladding didn't have clergy in mind as the primary audience for this book. It would serve well as a book to be shared by adults or older teens. Though one would need to figure out how to schedule each chapter, reading and reflecting on this test would make for an interesting Lenten discipline. I am grateful to Gladding for the book, and commend it wholeheartedly." -- Sara Olson Dean, Englewood Review of Books, Lent 2014

" Ten is worthwhile reading for anyone, but especially intriguing for a couples group, or either a high school or college-age group study. Gladding helps us see these 'Words of Life' as far more than 'rules' eclipsed and made void on the cross. Candid. Incisive. Interesting. Valuable." -- Andrea Hunter, Worship Leader Magazine, May/June 2014

"Sit in on this lively, heartfelt and heart-rending conversation about the Ten Words of God - those commandment etched in so much stone, causing so much turmoil and yet inviting us into a world we dream about, a life we had given up believing is possible." -- Light Magazine, Canada, February 2014
