With the Ten Commandments such an integral part of today's "culture wars," one would think that most people are familiar with what they actually say. Yet many surveys indicate otherwise -- and even when people can name all of the commandments, they often misinterpret their meaning. In God of Justice, David Leininger sets the record straight with a new look at this ancient document. He examines the commandments in the context of today's social, cultural, and political environment -- and concludes that rather than ironclad laws, the commandments are actually God's policy statements about what is the bedrock of a good, decent, and just society. When properly understood, the commandments offer God's guidance in establishing a healthy way of life that is rewarding for everyone. With discussion questions included for each chapter, this book is an excellent study resource for adult classes -- and clear and accessible reading that will be stimulating for any thoughtful Christian.
