Rick Shrader‘s Review:
I was given this book by my good friends at Mt. Tabor Baptist Church in Brownsburg, Indiana. I had not read Begg except by references. He is a pastor in the U.S. but with British background. This is a study of the Ten Commandments which have been adapted from his sermons. The most interesting part is that he holds that Sunday is a “Christian Sabbath.” Begg, therefore, takes the position that though the civil and ceremonial parts of the Mosaic Law have ended, the moral part has not (Sabbath keeping being part of the ten commandments in the moral law). The famous modern example of this position was missionary Eric Liddell who refused to run on Sunday in the 1924 Olympics. Many of the rest of us hold that all of the Law is ended and the principle of rest is an abiding principle of scripture but without the legal specifications of certain days or times. Sunday, of course, is the day of Christian gathering with which Begg also agrees. Begg has a good introduction on the loss of absolutes in our culture.
