The Ten Commandments were not demands from a distance: they were intrinsically linked to Israel's covenant relationship with God. They touch on our relationship with Him, too, and they bring into relief vital issues that are highly relevant to life in the twenty-first century:
* Consider the significance of loyalty – to God and to others
* Understand the true meaning of taking the name of God 'in vain'
* See how a concern for respect underlies some commandments
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application and 'Seeing Jesus' sections make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
