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.
