The book begins with a chapter on ethical decision-making that examines various ways in which non-Christians approach matters of morality, critiquing these and comparing them with basic biblical principles. Each of the succeeding chapters focuses on one of the Ten Commandments, beginning with an explanation of the principles on which the commandment is based, then moving on to consider practical questions and controversial issues associated with it.
