In this brief and highly accessible volume in the For Today series, distinguished biblical scholar and churchman Walter Harrelson explores the meaning and continuing importance of the Ten Commandments for Christians today. Harrelson writes in his preface: "The premise of this book is that the Ten Commandments are still an inadequately mined treasure, a storehouse of wonderfully helpful insight and guidance for the entire population of earth."
The For Today series was designed to provide reliable and accessible resources for the study and real life application of important biblical texts, theological documents, and Christian practices. The emphasis of the series is not only on the realization and appreciation of what these subjects have meant in the past, but also on their value in the present--"for today."
