Building on a long career in the field of Christian ethics, Paul Lehmann here examines the role of the Ten Commandments in Christian life. Driven by the fundamental ethical question What am I as a believer in Jesus Christ and as a member of his church to do?, Lehmann moves beyond the inadequacies of both an ethic of law and a utilitarian ethic to his unique proposal of a contextual ethic grounded in the concept of koinonia. Part One discusses the commandments generally while focusing on insights from sociology regarding the structure of human life. Part Two takes up each commandment individually as a springboard for discussing critical issues in today's world.
