The Truth About God: The Ten Commandments in Christian Life
by William H. Willimon and Stanley M. Hauerwas
Two popular authors consider not only what the Ten Commandments say about the people who observe them, but what they say about God. They are not some set of universal rules - they simply offer ways for a certain people to know a certain God-our God. What truths about God can be known through the Ten Commandments? God cares how we treat other people. God cares how we behave in marriage. God cares about the importance of being truthful. God wants people to take a day off from work each week. Readers will encounter Willimon and Hauerwas at their best as they explore the overarching question - What does it mean for people and the way they behave when they know some of these truths about God?
