Gods code of conduct is as relevant and insistent today as its always been.
The landscape of contemporary society reveals that we neither know nor care much about the Law of God. There is:
- A general lawlessness in the lives of professing Christians.
- An absence of the fear of God in public worship and private living.
- A growing confidence in ourselves and doubt concerning God and His Word.
Amidst this moral crisis, the message of the Ten Commandments can give us order, direction, and hope.
With dynamic implications for how each of us lives every day, Pathway to Freedom will challenge you to think long and hard about the significance of Gods Law.
"We have entered into a time of moral crisis in our culture and in the church as well. Stories about divorce, adultery, and the individualized picking and choosing of doctrines abound. Pathway to Freedom is forthright and necessary teaching that todays church cannot afford to ignore. How now shall we live? The beginning of the answer must be in obedience to Gods moral law summarized in the Ten Commandments."

Brianna4 Stars Out Of 5Pathway to FreedomDecember 3, 2016BriannaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In Pathway to Freedom, Alistair Begg challenges the reader to reexamine the Ten Commandments as foundational for modern living. Although it took me a while to be drawn into the book, I appreciated Beggs perspectives.
I think it is easy to read the Ten Commandments and think that we are pretty good Christians if we havent murdered, cheated, lied, or stolen. However, Begg reviews how each of the Ten Commandments may be broken in subtle ways and how society has come to accept certain trespasses of the Ten Commandments. This challenges readers to inspect their own lives, including underlying attitudes that may be counter to the Ten Commandments.
As would be expected in a book on the Ten Commandments, Begg incorporates Scripture throughout Pathway to Freedom. He also includes lines from various hymns, poems, and quotes; these sentiments help to balance the almost academic nature of the book. Pathway to Freedom is not for the faint of heart. Begg does not shy away from bold, to-the-point statements.
