 THE BATTLE OVER the TEN COMMANDMENTS: Challenging the Witness of Christians in Society is set in the context of the current court battles by some Christians to bring back the Ten Commandments in public schools and other public places. The book recasts the debate in a radically new light, and calls upon the wisdom of religious persons on both sides of this controversy to unite and serve in the interest of Christ Jesus and the Church because a house divided cannot stand. The book first puts forth contemporary insights from the Ten Commandments referred to as parallel, as the background of the reflection. It then critiques the witness of the Christian community, especially in light of these insights, and offers an alternative to the proper role of religion, in particular, Christianity in society and how best to impact the general public. The thesis of the book is the most effective way for Christians to impact the moral and spiritual decline of society in our time and it is not a call to bring back the Ten Commandments in public schools, but for Christians to live out the teachings of these commandments in their private and public life.
