Westminster John Knox Press The Ten Commandments: Interpretation: Resources for the Use of Scripture in the Church

In addition to being one of the finest commentaries on the market today, WJK press' Interpretation series, with the release of its new thematic oriented commentaries, has also become, arguably, the most dynamic. Moving beyond commentaries that focus on entire books of the Bible, Interpretation will now focus on "enduring passages" of Scripture seeking to garner not only a critical understanding of a given passage in its original context and historical setting, but also seeking to construct and articulate a theology out of that is relevant for our modern world.

In this volume, The Ten Commandments Patrick Miller sets forth an understanding of the Ten Commandments rooted in their original context, but also illuminates their prominence in the New Testament, and their influence in Christian theological and ethical thinking throughout the centuries. Thus, in many ways this commentary serves as not only a historical, and critical commentary, but also as a theological commentary. How else could you write 446 pages on The Ten Commandments?
