In some form or way, everyone is familiar with at least a few of the Ten Commandments. Thou shalt not steal, kill and commit adultery. But after those, things begin to get a bit hazy. Cleanliness is next to godliness, God helps those who helps themselves, and treat others like you want to be treated, are next on the list. Then you have those who refuse to believe or acknowledge that the Ten Commandments are even relevant to our time and place in this culture.
In this book, A Doubter’s Guide to the Ten Commandments, Australian theologian and scholar, John Dickson, takes a look at the ten commandments given to Moses and to show how they have affected western thought. He takes into account the fact that not everyone believes the Bible but he makes a great argument for how we all abide by these commandments in some form or fashion.
This book is a great laymen’s introduction to the topic of apologetics, starting where we all start, with the basics. There are plenty of insights and topics that would make this a great book for small groups as well as for the individual seeking to deepen their understanding on why we believe what we do.
