Lori D5 Stars Out Of 5Powerful words of insight!June 22, 2021Lori DQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Yet another thoughtful and insightful book by Jen Wilkin! This book is easy to read and is very relatable....yet challenging in the message of what the ten commandments mean to Christians in today's world. Great bible study or book for small group discussion. I also plan to buy a few more copies as gifts. I highly recommend!!
Kendra5 Stars Out Of 5insightful studyApril 1, 2021KendraIn Ten Words to Live By, Bible teacher Jen Wilkin opens up the Ten Commandments for us in new ways. Rather than looking at the commandments as surface rules--"You shall not murder." Haven't killed anyone, check!--Wilkin encourages us to examine our hearts and consider a deeper, more expansive obedience. Jesus taught this when he said lusting in our hearts is adultery and hatred is murder. In some cases, such as those words of Jesus, we might have an idea of what expansive obedience could look like. In others, Wilkin offers insights I'd never considered. It is easy to fall into "surface interpretation" and walk away from the Ten Commandments feeling pretty good about myself, but this book really challenged that perspective. I hope I never read the Commandments in the same way again, for I am guilty of breaking them all. "The Ten Words show us how to live on earth as in heaven, conforming to the image of Christ as representatives of Yahweh. They are engraving tools. The more we obey them, the more we reflect his character, visibly, to a world that very much needs us to (43)."
Each chapter ends with verses for meditation, questions for reflection, and a prayer, making this an excellent personal or group study. Like most things, you'll get out of the study what you put in, so don't skip over those things. I highly recommend all of Jen Wilkin's books.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher (Crossway) in exchange for my review.
ChrisAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Ten Words of LifeMarch 5, 2021ChrisAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jen Wilkin is a treasure! She cares about making the Word of God, rightly divided, easily accessible to each reader and calling all of us in closer to see more of the heart and voice of God. And I am grateful. From the first lines, I was hooked, reading page after page. It was hard to put this book down as night approached.
Jen Wilkin's turns of phrase and observations, bringing out the depth of the meaning of each word, calling us to changed hearts, not just simple moralism, are beautiful. She exhorts us to put off the idols of our hearts and to worship God with single-minded allegiance, to see the building of the commandments, all stemming from the first call to worship God alone. To love God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength. To love the law that helps us see Him better and be transformed into His likeness. To love the law He has so graciously given to us. And to love our neighbors as ourselves - as He has so kindly loved us. Each chapter ends with a reflection question and a call to prayer. It's so good! I highly recommend picking up a copy of this book today!
