-Johnny Hunt, Senior pastor of First Baptist Church of ^Woodstock, Georgia, and president of the Southern Baptist Convention
Al ^Mohler is a like a biblical prophet of old speaking into a modernday wilderness ^of confusion and compromise. In this exposition of the Ten Commandments, he is following ^in a train of faithful Christian ministers who used the ten words (along with the ^Apostles' Creed and the Lord's Prayer) to teach "Christianity 101." But there are ^riches here for those both new to and mature in the faith. Read and grow.
-Ligon ^Duncan, Senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
In ^our noisy culture, voices of all kinds are bombarding us. In Al Mohler's book ^Words from the Fire, he challenges us to hear the voice of God roaring from ^the fire. God's Word to us through the Ten Commandments is clear, convicting, and ^compelling. This incredible read will silence the noise around you and call you ^to hear the only voice
that leads you to a life of holiness. Get this book, read ^it, share it, teach it, and give another copy of it to a friend.
-Ronnie ^W. Floyd, Senior pastor, First Baptist Church of Springdale and The Church at Pinnacle ^Hills, Arkansas
I love how my friend Al Mohler instills in Words ^from the Fire a sense of reverence, respect, and mystery at the awesomeness ^of God's truth proclaimed to God's people. Something's going on that is so much ^bigger than you and me. "We have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing ^greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves" (2 Corinthians 4:7). ^This reminder will never grow old.
-James MacDonald, Senior pastor of Harvest ^Bible Chapel
This is a rare book of deep scriptural insight combined with ^acute cultural analysis. Dr. Mohler helps us see that, far from being simply "rules" ^about Christian living, these Ten Commandments embody the heart of Christian faith. ^Serious Christians, pastors, teachers, and all those wishing to understand the urgent ^relevance of this ancient code for today's confused world will greatly benefit from ^this book.
-J.D. Greear, Lead pastor, the Summit Church, Raleigh-Durham, ^N.C.
Dr. Mohler has admirably achieved the difficult task of being both ^faithful to Holy Scripture and relevant to the cultural crises of our day. These ^essays take God's timeless Ten Commandments and apply them in an inspiring and timely ^way to the moral crises of our current culture.
-Dr. Richard Land, President ^of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
Of ^the myriad of books written on the Ten Commandments, I put Al Mohler's up there ^close to the top of the list. It is contemporary, insightful, interesting, and above ^all biblical. If you want a fresh but thoroughly Christian perspective on the BIG ^TEN, here it is!!
-Phil Roberts, President of Midwestern Baptist Theological ^Seminary
If we are to know God, He must speak-and He has! In Words ^From The Fire, Al Mohler Jr. carefully and clearly reveals to us the God who ^spoke in the Ten Commandments. This book is exegetically sound and theologically ^solid. I never hear or read Al that I am not blessed and challenged. Reading this ^book was no exception.
-Dr. Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist ^Theological Seminary
"A lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God ^has spoken; who can but prophesy?" (Amos 3:8). In his new book, Words from ^the Fire, Al Mohler, like Amos, reminds us that God's revealed Word in Scripture, ^specifically in the Decalogue, changes everything for everyone! By His grace, God ^hasspoken His Word. We ignore it or disobey it at our own peril. But if we obey ^it, our lives are blessed. This work is a welcomed breath of fresh air in our day ^of self-centered, antiauthoritarian relativism. I commend it wholeheartedly.
