About this Item

98 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.4in. x 0.7in.God of Justice by David E. Leininger is a book on the sermons on the ten commandments. Included topics in this book are as follows: - sermons on the ten commandments- sermon series on the ten commandments- ten commandments- bible ten commandments- the ten commandmentsWith the Ten Commandments such an integral part of todays culture wars, it would seem to be a safe assumption that most people are familiar with what the commandments actually say. Yet many surveys indicate otherwise -- and even when people can name all of the commandments, they often misinterpret their meaning. For example: Do not take the Lords name in vain has nothing to do with avoiding getting ones mouth washed out with soap; Remember the sabbath day is not about going to church; Honor your father and mother is not a way to get recalcitrant kids to clean up their rooms; and despite what most folks think, You shall not commit adultery is not primarily about sex!In God of Justice, David Leininger sets the record straight with a new look at this ancient document. He examines the commandments in the context of todays social, cultural, and political environment -- and he concludes that rather than the traditional view of them as ironclad laws, the commandments are actually Gods policy statements about what is the bedrock of a good, decent, and just society. When properly understood, the commandments offer Gods guidance in establishing a healthy way of life that is rewarding for everyone. With discussion questions included for each chapter, God of Justice is an excellent study resource for adult classes -- and clear and accessible reading that will be stimulating and rewarding for any thoughtful Christian. David E. Leininger is the pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Warren, Pennsylvania. He has also served congregations in North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Prior to entering the ministry, Leininger worked for almost 20 years in radio and television.

With the Ten Commandments such an integral part of today's ""culture wars,"" it would seem to be a safe assumption that most people are familiar with what the commandments actually say. Yet many surveys indicate otherwise -- and even when people can name all of the commandments, they often misinterpret their meaning.

For example:
* ""Do not take the Lord's name in vain"" has nothing to do with avoiding getting one's mouth washed out with soap;
* ""Remember the sabbath day"" is not about going to church;
* ""Honor your father and mother"" is not a way to get recalcitrant kids to clean up their rooms;
* and despite what most folks think, ""You shall not commit adultery"" is not primarily about sex!
