Editorial Reviews

Peter Lillback
"The holy nature of God and the fallen nature of man collide at the tablets of stone bearing the ten commandments of God. With pastoral care and clarity, Dr. Phil Ryken applies timeless theological insights to his exposition of God's eternal moral law. Read Written in Stone and the fear of God and the love of God will meet with thanksgiving as the spirit of God writes his law upon your heart."
Dr. Joel Beeke
"Dr .Phil Ryken's Written in Stone is one of the best popular, practical and Christ-centered treatments of God's comprehensive moral law available today. Providing the right balance between law and gospel, Ryken shows, primarily through the use of Bible stories and contemporary illustrations, how to use God's law as a mirror to expose our sin, and muzzle and keep us from yielding to temptation, and a map to guide our conduct. Here you will find answers for today's moral crisis. Read this book slowly and prayerfully, then give copies to your friends."
R. Albert Mohler
"Philip Ryken is one of the most faithful expositors of Scripture found anywhere in Christendom today. He is a sensitive pastor, a true Christian intellectual, a faithful student of Scripture, and a passionate preacher. Written in Stone: The Ten Commandments and Today’s Moral Crisis is a tour de force for our times and a much-needed word of clarity in a time of moral confusion. Philip Ryken’s exposition of the Ten Commandments is a much-needed antidote to contemporary misrepresentations and a powerful exhortation to Biblical Christianity. God has blessed his church with the gift of Philip Ryken, and Philip Ryken has blessed us with this book."
Pastor Ken Jones
"Written in Stone" is a timely and refreshing reminder of the importance of the 10 Commandments. While Evangelicals obsess over their removal from public facilities, the sad reality is that there is a woeful ignorance of their content and implications for daily living. As a true Pastor/Theologian Phil Ryken expounds the moral law in a way that properly delineates the crucial Law - Gospel dynamic. I am grateful for his faithful handling of God's Law and pray that this book will be used by God to further strengthen His church.
