Item description for Written in Stone: The Ten Commandments and Today's Moral Crisis by Philip Ryken...

Overview
The Ten Commandments are the crystallization of God's law. All across our nation they appear in churches, homes, and even some public buildings. But how do we apply them today, and how do they relate to the Gospel? Philip Graham Ryken believes that the Ten Commandments are an expression of God's eternal character and thus have binding force today. In this book he explains the value of the law for us - to convict us of our sin, to restrain sin in society, and to show us how to live for Christ. Dr. Ryken offers basic principles for interpreting and applying God's law and explains these holy words commandment by commandment, illustrating each with a biblical account and relating each to the person and redemptive work of Jesus Christ. This is a book to be read and savored with reflection. God's holiness and his standards for life are clearly related, and the joy of living by God's law is vividly portrayed. Readers will find themselves examining their own lives, changing their ways, and delighting in the grace of God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Written in Stone: The Ten Commandments and Today's Moral Crisis?

"I thought I knew the 10 Commandments"  Sep 9, 2006
In preperation for my fall adult bible class I asked our minister to recomend some resources. Written In Stone, was one of them. I have been pouring over this book all summer and will be leading my class though this material over the next few months.

I thought I knew the 10 Commandments, but quickly learned that I didn't have a full appreciation until I read this book. It is great and I have been deeply blessed by reading it. I highly recomond it. God Bless.
 
Review of this Reformed book by an Evangelical seminary student  Jul 23, 2005
First, I do not agree with Brother Ryken on all theological issues put forth in this book. Despite that, I think he has written a superbly beneficial book based on Scripture. His ideas on the Law and how it applies to Christians today is a very sound idea. He divides the Law into 3 categories, Ceremonial, Civil and Moral Law. He states that the Moral Law applies to us today while the others were tied to the Israelites alone, which I could not agree with more. He makes a great argument for why the 10 Commandments still apply to us today and writes a moderately Reformed book. I disagree with his ideas of predestination (I believe Scripture but have a different interpretation, but we both find God to be completely sovereign).

Brother Ryken goes through each of the 10 Commandments in a separate chapter. He makes sound Scriptural references to show why these still apply today.

Brother Ryken has a full set of notes at the end of the book to guide us in further reading while giving deeper tangential inputs that would not fit well in the main text of the book. He also adds 2 indices- a Scriptural index and a General index.

Ryken's basis in writing is that we do not keep God's law in order to be saved. We have been saved by grace alone through faith in Christ alone. But why are we saved? To glorify God, which we do by keeping his commandments. John 14:15.

Whether you are Reformed, Evangelical, Charismatic, Catholic or simply identify as Christian, this book will benefit you on your Walk and will help you know more about how we should act as Christians.
 
One Of The Few Books Which Is Right On Target  Feb 18, 2004
In this book, Pastor Ryken offers basic principles for interpreting and applying God's law and explain these holy words... commandment by commandment, illustrating each with biblical account and relating each to the person and redemptive work of Jesus Christ. This book should be read along with your bible and savored with reflection. I could hardly put the book down...from the first page to the end. Gods holiness and his standards for life are clearly related, and the joy of living by Gods law is vividly portrayed. His explanation on the The Ten Commandment open my eyes up to the deep meaning of the law. Readers will find themselves examining their own lives, changing their ways, and delighting in the grace of God.

This book is, Highly Recommended. Great Commentary for any home library. One book you will want to come back to so that you can refresh your memory. My next book and my suggestion to you will be Ryken's The Communion of Saints
