Many Christians view the Ten Commandments as laws they are forced to obey in order to stay on God's good side. In her book His Loving Law, Our Lasting Legacy, Jani Ortlund invites readers to look at the Ten Commandments from a different perspective. Ortlund urges believers to recognize the Ten Commandments as a mirror, reflecting our need for God's cleansing and forgiveness.
Throughout the book, each commandment is presented not as another rule to follow, but as an invitation to experience more of God's love. As readers grasp this knowledge, they are able to experience true freedom in Christ. They will begin to understand how embracing God's laws and passing them along to future generations offers a needy world a glimpse of the truth of God's love.
"Jani Ortlund has once again written a convicting work for women seeking after God. She clearly and thoughtfully demonstrates the powerful relevance the commandments hold for Christians who seek holiness by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Mary K. Mohler, wife of R. Albert Mohler Jr.
"Any parent or adult who ministers to children will find here a rich curriculum for themselves and for their children."

"Jani Ortlund blows the dust off the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. Written with the wisdom and insight gained through a lifetime of teaching God's Word and raising four children who love the Lord, His Loving Law, Our Lasting Legacy equips readers not only to see themselves in the revealing light of God's Law, but also to guide children into loving God with their lives."
