The Ten Commandments
A few days ago I posted an interview with Dr. Mark Rooker on his brand new book The Ten Commandments: Ethics for the Twenty-First Century (see here). Thanks to Jim Baird at B & H Publishing I have been making my way through the book. But I thought I would share a bit more about the book.
In this new volume from the New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology series, Mark Rooker discusses one by one the language of each of the Ten Commandments and its complete meaning in the ancient context. Adding a depth of understanding that can’t be obtained by looking only at the commandment itself, he shows how each commandment echoes elsewhere in the Old Testament, how it was violated in Israel’s history, and how it surfaces again in the New Testament. In conclusion, Rooker includes an extended section on the theological significance of each commandment and its contemporary implications.
