Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


A thorough, clear, and concise style characterized many Puritan works, and Watson’s The Ten Commandments is no exception. Watson very sensibly divides his commentary into four sections: first, he discusses themes central to the Decalogue; second, he examines each commandment one by one; third, he explores the relationship between God’s law and sin; and finally, he shows his readers the way of salvation, enabled by Christ through faith and the sacraments. Centuries later, Christians still find Watson’s devotional commentary practical and accessible. Pastors and Sunday School teachers may find this book an exceptionally helpful reference for sermons and classes.
