In Keeping the Ten Commandments, Packer probes the purpose and meaning of the commandments, which he believes are often mistakenly viewed as a legalistic list of dos and don’ts. Under Packer’s guidance, readers discover that these precepts are God’s blueprints for the best life possible—containing the wisdom everyone needs for relational, spiritual, and societal blessing.

Delivered in brief, readable segments with discussion questions and ideas for further study at the end of each chapter, Keeping the Ten Commandments will challenge you to view the commandments with new eyes and appreciate the heritage of health and hope that they offer.

Author Bio

J.I. Packer (1926–), or James Innell Packer, is considered one of the most influential evangelicals in North America. Packer committed his life to Christian service after hearing lectures from C. S. Lewis while studying at Oxford. In the 1950s, Packer was ordained a deacon and priest in the Church of England. Before moving to Canada, he lectured at several schools, including Tyndale Hall in Bristol, Latimer House in Oxford, and Oak Hill Theological College in London.

Packer is currently a professor of theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, and serves as the honorary president of the Latimer Trust. Packer has written and edited several books: he was the editor of the English Standard Version Bible, the New Bible Dictionary, and the New Dictionary of Theology, and his books include Illustrated Manner and Customs of the Bible and A Quest for Godliness.
