    1. I really enjoyed reading this book and for that matter, I like all of Watson s books I think he expounded the true meaning of the Decalogue from the context of the Christian epoch we now find ourselves in Namely the age of the Church and the observance of the moral law of God still applies as it always will.


    2. This was not my first time reading this book Actually, it was my third But I really like this book Watson is not nearly as tedious as some Puritan authors, so if you ve found reading other Puritans to be a bit, well, discouraging, then I commend this to you I enjoy his prose, Scriptural awareness, and theological insight I ll probably read this as a devotional in another couple years.


    3. A wonderful treatment of the ten commandments I love how the Puritans have so many applications for each point they make from the text, from being obedient to the text to glorifying God because of what is expressed therein.


    4. Good exposition of the 10 commandments Very dense, took me a while to read Shows all the explicit and implicit requirements of following the 10 commandments.


    5. Beautiful, masterful treatment of the moral law and the Westminster Shorter Catechism Occasional puritan legalism, but incredibly convicting and ever timely.


    6. This is one of the most helpful commentaries I have found on the 10 Commandments As I prepared to teach the 10 Commandments to the College and Career Sunday School class at my Church I found that I was referring to this work constantly than any other.Watson has a great ability to take heavy topics and bring them to a day to day level, which makes this both a great theological work, as well as a practically challenging commentary.In my mind this is a must have for any serious student of the 10 C [...]


    7. Excellent book right from the start Rev Wastson s exposition of the Decalogue is one of the best I ve ever read He sets out the biblical and Confessional view of the Ceremonial, Judicial, and Moral Law, but he mostly focuses on the moral law This book is a must read, especially his treatment of the 4th Commandment or Sabbath command, it s extremely needful in a day where the Sabbath is completely disregarded.



    8. I have read chunks of this, but what Watson says particularly on the Lord s Day is well worth study I also wass extremely impressed with his treatment of the 5th commandment.




    9. This is the first Watson I ve read I want , lots He s incredibly gifted at using metaphor and exposing the heart.
