Written In Stone: The Ten Commandments and Today’s Moral Crisis, By Philip Graham Ryken

Written In Stone: The Ten Commandments and Today’s Moral Crisis

By: Philip Graham Ryken

The Pastor’s Monthly Book Selection – July, 2017

In this well written work on the Ten Commandments, Phil Ryken expounds on the Reformed view of the three uses of the Old Testament law – Ceremonial, Civil, and Moral. Noting that the moral law is binding on all people everywhere, the author examines the Ten Commandments in a manner that is relevant to our 21st Century culture. Ryken’s remarks on law vs grace, as well as on interpreting God’s law laid a good foundation for the subsequent chapters where he worked through each of the individual 10 Commandments. Each chapter ended with follow up questions that can be used for personal devotion or group discussion questions. I recommend this book as a helpful tool for any study on this valuable yet neglected topic.
