I Am the Lord Your God explores anew the place of the Ten Commandments in contemporary civil society, their relation to natural moral law, their relevance for Christian instruction, and their pertinence to ethical issues such as abortion, killing, homosexuality, lying, greed, and the like.

Written by an outstanding group of ethicists, theologians, and Bible scholars from various church traditions — Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist — this timely work argues unequivocally for the divine authority and permanent validity of the Ten Commandments in both church and society While including the Judge Roy Moore controversy in Alabama and other pertinent current issues in their discussion, the authors above all call the church to remain faithful to its heritage — ultimately to the Lord God — amid our postmodern culture at large.
Max L. Stackhouse
"The arresting thesis of this striking collection of essays is that, as one of the authors says, 'the dominant heresy of the contemporary Western church is antinomianism.' Many people don't want to hear of a God who lays down the law. Most conveniently position themselves between 'It's a free country' in regard to areas where they want latitude and others to be nonjudgmental and 'There ought to be a law,' invoking civil compulsion in areas where they want others to stop what they are doing. These authors, however, take the laws of God as found in the Ten Commandments very seriously as a prophetic message for today. The essays on 'Thou shalt not kill' and 'Thou shalt not commit adultery' are especially telling. But the whole book should be required reading in every seminary and recommended reading for serious church study groups."
