With this volume, WJK is proud to introduce an exciting new phase in the renowned Interpretation commentary series. Instead of focusing on individual books of the Bible, these new additions to the expanded series will focus on the Bible's most enduring passages and most vital themes, bringing to these topics the insight and faithful wisdom that are longtime hallmarks of the Interpretation series.
In this first offering, Pat Miller studies the Ten Commandments as ancient document and as contemporary guide. With careful attention to each commandment in its original context, this book shows the reader the modern relevance of these basic principles, as well as how the ideas of each commandment influenced the New Testament and the history of Christian thought.
More than an intellectual exercise, The Ten Commandments applies the call of the commandments to modern-day issues. For example, Miller discusses how the commandment "You shall not kill" relates to manslaughter, murder, execution, and war, and suggests that the story of Ruth may be read as a commentary on how to honor one's father and mother.
Future volumes are underway to address passages such as The Lord's Prayer and the Sermon on the Mount. Issues of violence, wealth, or eschatology will be addressed as well. Surely this expanded Interpretation series will be an excellent resource for all those who teach, preach, and study the Bible.
