At a time when the nation's morality is in alarming decline it is surprising that so little has been written on the Ten Commandments. Brian Edwards gives us a modern commentary, carefully uncovering their true meaning and incisively applying them to our contemporary society. Probably never in the history of western civilisation have the Ten Commandments been more neglected and therefore more relevant than today. Andrew Anderson writes, "Brian Edwards has turned his probing mind and expositor's skill, along with a pastor's heart, to this vitally significant part of God's word. This book unpacks the crammed meaning of these terse commands and applies them pointedly to life in a deregulated age".
