A challenging commentary, this second tome in the Trilogy is a stupendous theological endeavor. Each commandment is meticulously explained and its applications amply expressed. Using the brief question and answer format, this work in unsurpassable in its scope of bringing heavy topics down to an easily comprehensible level. Absolutely enjoyable, its savor will linger for long.

Part of the three volumes that make up Watson’s famous Body of Practical Divinity. Spurgeon called this “One of the most precious and peerless works of the Puritans, and those best acquainted with it prize it most.” Watson produces thoughtful exposition on this vital portion of Scripture that is foundational to the Christian life.

Watson, Thomas, The Ten Commandments (Carlisle, PA: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1962).
"In this book Watson (c. 1620-1686) continues his exposition of the Shorter Catechism drawn up by the Westminster Assembly. Watson was one of the most popular preachers in London during the Puritan era . . . The series of three volumes, of which this is the second (the Body of Divinity is first and The Lord's Prayer third), makes an ideal introduction to Puritan literature. There are few matters about which the Puritans differ more from present-day Christians than in their assessment of the importance of the ten commandments. The commandments, they held, are the first thing in Christianity which the natural man needs to be taught and they should be the daily concern of the Christian to the last. In this book Watson examines the moral law as a whole as well as bringing out the meaning and force of each particular commandment. In view of the important function of the law in Christian life and evangelism, this is a most valuable volume." -- SWRB
"Excellent study. Highly recommended for personal and group study. The need for understanding the Law of God is always of great importance for the Christian. Watson is an excellent expositor of it." -- GCB
"The most famous commentary on the Ten Commandments was by Lancelot Andrews (1555-1626), a huge folio. . . ." -- Jay P. Green, Sr.
