In The Rule of Love, J.V. Fesko gives an introductory exposition of the Ten Commandments. Beginning with the importance of the prologue, and then addressing each Commandment in turn, he sets forth a balanced and biblical approach that places the law in proper perspective. Throughout the book, Fesko analyzes the historical context of God’s giving the law in order to help us accurately understand the moral demands God places upon humanity.

Yet, Fesko does not stop there; he also discusses the covenantal and redemptive context in which the law was given. Thus, he shows that the law is not presented to us in order for us to present ourselves right before God. Rather, it demonstrates our failure to love God as we should and points us to Christ and his perfect obedience. Fesko also shows how Christ applies the commandments to his people by the indwelling power and presence of the Holy Spirit. This survey of the Ten Commandments promises to bring about a more accurate understanding of the proper uses of the law, as well as profound gratitude for all that God has for us in Christ.

The Rule of Love refreshingly sets each of the Ten Commandments in its historical, covenantal, and redemptive context, then proceeds to show that each commandment covers a broad range of issues that convict us as believers of sin and encourage us to flee to Christ who is the great Law-fulfiller and our complete remedy for all our Law-breaking.
