What do the Ten Commandments say to us today? For many, they are remembered as a list of dos and don'ts. Their content may be unknown and, in today's morally relativistic society, they are no longer the rule for living or the basis of moral and ethical decisions. But what do we do when we need to make a decision about what is right and wrong? Dr Cowdell shows that the Ten Commandments are surprisingly relevant to today's morally complex world, giving us rules for living, as part of a larger, richer vision of who God is and who God is calling us to be. This book takes a fresh look at the Ten Commandments. It sets out to rediscover them, exploring their strength as an ethical code grounded in God's wider purposes for Israel and the Christian church. These reflections are practical, insightful and accessible to a wide readership. They come with questions for personal reflection or for group discussion, that have been tested in practice, making The Ten Commandments & Ethics Today an ideal resource for the individual Christian reader, Bible Study group or Religious Instruction class.

Scott Cowdell

Scott Cowdell (PhD, in modern Christology, University of Queensland) has been Rector of St Pauls Anglican Church, Canberra, Australia, since Easter 2002. He also teaches theology at Charles Sturt University (through St Marks National Theological Centre), and is the Editor of St Marks Review.
Dr Cowdell taught in the United Faculty of Theology for a year at Trinity College, Melbourne, then moved to Adelaide as Principal of St Barnabas Theological College for four years. He has been a Member of the Doctrine Commission of General Synod since 1995, bringing considered written contributions to the Churchs debates on women bishops, lay presidency and homosexuality. Elected in 2004 as a Fellow of St Pauls College at the University of Sydney, he spent sixteen weeks in residence there in late 2004 as a Visiting Scholar during a period of Long Service and other accrued leave. In late 2006 he was appointed one of six Founding Fellows of the new Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics.


Dr Cowdell is the author of four books, most recently Gods Next Big Thing: Discovering the Future Church (Melbourne: John Garratt, 2004) and A God For This World (London & New York: Continuum, 2000). As time allows he is currently working on a topical book about the nature of faith today, tentatively entitled Abiding Faith: Christianity Beyond Certainty, Anxiety and Violence.
