Who has the time for a list of rules from an authoritarian deity?
In a society prone to self-interest and resistant to the notion of authority, the Ten Commandments are widely misunderstood or simply ignored. Monotheistic and directive, they smack of exclusivity and demand absolute obedience. Not even believers, though quick to defend the Commandments as part of our heritage, spend much time learning or teaching them to their children. Curious treatment for words that reveal God and frame the identity of His people.
Yet, there is great reward for those who explore these words in all their beauty and truth, for they speak of One who loves. And because He has spoken, we can know His love and respond in kind.
In Words from the Fire, Al Mohler skillfully explores the Ten Commandments, revealing our Creator--the only living God--in His own words. These words, both authoritative and compelling, embody God's pledge of love and mercy toward those bound for self-destruction.
Though invisible, God does speak, forthrightly revealing what He is like and how we can know Him. Even written on tablets so long ago, these words still resonate and apply to our minds, hearts and lives today.
