Product Description

In addition to being one of the finest commentaries on the market today, WJK press' Interpretation series, with the release of its new thematic oriented commentaries, has also become, arguably, the most dynamic. Moving beyond commentaries that focus on entire books of the Bible, Interpretation will now focus on "enduring passages" of Scripture seeking to garner not only a critical understanding of a given passage in its original context and historical setting, but also seeking to construct and articulate a theology out of that is relevant for our modern world.

In this volume, The Ten Commandments Patrick Miller sets forth an understanding of the Ten Commandments rooted in their original context, but also illuminates their prominence in the New Testament, and their influence in Christian theological and ethical thinking throughout the centuries. Thus, in many ways this commentary serves as not only a historical, and critical commentary, but also as a theological commentary. How else could you write 446 pages on The Ten Commandments?

Publisher's Description

In this volume, Patrick D. Miller studies the Ten Commandments as ancient document and as contemporary guide. With careful attention to each commandment in its original context, this book shows the reader the modern relevance of these basic principles, as well as how the ideas of each commandment influenced the New Testament. More than an intellectual exercise, The Ten Commandments applies the call of the commandments to modern-day issues.

Westminster John Knox Press is proud to introduce an exciting new phase in the renowned Interpretation commentary series. Instead of focusing on individual books of the Bible, these new volumes will focus on the Bible's most enduring passages and most vital themes, bringing to these topics the insight and faithful wisdom that are longtime hallmarks of the Interpretation series. This expanded Interpretation series will be an excellent resource for all those who teach, preach, and study the Bible.
