Publisher's Summary

Christianity isn’t about following rules, it’s about a relationship. The rise in popularity of this phrase coincides with a growing disinterest and misunderstanding regarding the role of God’s life-giving, perfect law in the Christian life. Rather than the source of joy it was intended to be, the law is viewed as an angry god’s restrictions for a rebellious people.

Unpacked

This book really helped to unpack something that perhaps I had mentally classified as archaic and basic (The 10 Commandments). I’m really appreciative that this is applicable to my life today and forever. God knew and knows what he’s doing. Besides being a good read, it cuts to the heart.

10/10 • Ten Words to Love

Jen Wilkin is one of my favorite teachers. She has a gift for communication in both written and spoken word. Her delight in God is evident in her work and this work is no exception. She opens up the ten commandments, making them accessible in a whole new way, and calling each reader (listener) closer in to the heart of God. She brings the text alive with context and home with thoughtful questions.

Jen considers each word carefully, bringing out new depths from old commands, calling us to changed hearts, not just moralistic deism. She offers the hope of a future where "things we have exalted will be cast down to the level of their real worth" - and an exhortation to cast them down now, giving "undivided allegiance to the God of our costly deliverance." She calls us to worship with single-minded allegiance, being conformed in thought, word, and deed into the image of our God, not the image of the enemy. It all starts with the worship of God alone and builds beautifully in a practical call to love God with our whole hearts, souls, minds, and strengths - and then to love those made in His image as we love ourselves. It's a call to love His law, His ten words, and let them transform us more into His likeness. Each chapter ends with reflection questions and a call to prayer. 10/10, would recommend.

Loved every bit!

An amazing book and very convicting. From my legalistic tendencies, I was convicted by Jen’s delivery of the 10 words!
