There has been an erosion of the role of the Ten Commandments in the life of today's church. There has been a twofold pressure - both from outside, and inside, the church. From outside the church, the post-modern world-view regards regulations that restrict personal choice as old fashioned. Whilst most Christians would feel that they are not in agreement with such concepts, they have been subtly influenced by them. From inside the church, ideas have gained ground that the Ten Commandments have been superseded by other commandments from Jesus. Whilst most people base these ideas on biblical grounds, they do also reflect the change in world-view surrounding the church.

David Searle clearly shows the distinctions between the Ten Commandments and other Old Testament law. He demonstrates that there is still a role in your life for the Ten Commandments. He explains the background to each of the commandments and what they mean for you today. He also explains how the Ten Commandments are there for you to enjoy the Christian life.
