The Commandments We Keepby Peter J. Vaghi
In his latest addition to the Pillars of Faith series, Msgr. Peter Vaghi guides readers in an exploration of the choices they make in their daily lives. With simplicity and clarity, he unpacks each of the Ten Commandments using a three-pronged approach: discover how the commandment was understood in the Old Testament, understand how Christ fulfilled the commandment in his life and teaching, and examine the personal and practical implications of each commandment for life today. James Martin, S.J., author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, hails Vaghis books as firmly grounded in scripture and tradition, well written, clear, orthodox, to the pointand, best of all, wonderfully concise. In The Commandments We Keep, Vaghi draws from scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the writings of Benedict XVI to help readers understand that Christs purpose was not to replace the commandments, but rather to empower his followers to live them in a new way.
