In many ways the Law of God has lost its place in the church, often being relegated to the dustbin of history since the church age is “under grace and not law“. And while it’s indisputably true that the new covenant sealed in Christ’s blood is central to the Christian faith, I submit that a working knowledge of the Law of God as encompassed in the Ten Commandments, and an understanding of its eternal nature as a revelation of God’s unchanging moral character is indispensable for His new covenant people.
With this in mind Dr. Al Mohler has written a very timely, theologically sound, and eminently readable tome on the subject of The Ten Commandments entitled Words from the Fire: Hearing the Voice of God in the 10 Commandments. I personally found the book to be very useful and scholarly in addition to being chock full of useful and interesting historical tidbits, not to mention Dr. Mohler’s signature plain-spoken, practical teaching. I highly and unreservedly recommend this book to Absolute Dominion’s readership.
With this subject in mind I’m also pleased to submit for your listening pleasure a sermon series on the Ten Commandments by Dr. Mohler:
The First Commandment, The Second Commandment, The Third Commandment, The Fourth Commandment, The Fifth Commandment, The Sixth Commandment, The Seventh Commandment, The Eighth Commandment, The Ninth Commandment, The Tenth Commandment.
