B 17 Using the Ten Commandments

Opinion is divided on the Ten Commandments. It is not uncommon to hear the view that they are outmoded and irrelevant in the modern world — nor the view that they are at the centre of Christian social ethics.

Avoiding both these extremes, this study considers the Commandments themselves in their context in Scripture, and examines ways in which they may be taught faithfully as an important part of the scriptural resources for Christian moral thinking. It concludes with some practical resources — written and visual — to support this.
