This short, accessible, but theologically substantive volume unfolds the significance of the Ten Commandments for the Christian life. Gilbert Meilaender, one of today’s leading Christian ethicists, places the commandments in the larger context of the biblical history of redemption and invites readers to wrestle with how human loves should relate to the first commandment: to love God above all else. As he approaches the Decalogue from this perspective, Meilaender helps Christians learn what it means to say, “Thy will be done.”
Gilbert Meilaender is among the few master theologians at work today. Brilliantly and constructively Lutheran, freely at odds with Catholic teachings on this or that matter, Meilaender at the same time draws deeply from the moral teachings of Pope John Paul II and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. There are few things more worth doing than pondering the Decalogue and few theologians more worth doing it with than Meilaender.
—Matthew Levering, James N. and Mary D. Perry Jr. Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary
