The Ten Commandments are woven deeply into the fabric of American history—not only the commandments themselves, but also the irrepressible habit of giving them physical form. Stretching back to the mid-19th century, observes Joselit, a historian at George Washington University, the American people “saw to it that the Ten Commandments were just about everywhere: in houses of worship and private homes, on the street, in school, in the subway, and even on the interstate.”Set in Stone shows how depictions of the Ten Commandments have provoked “heated exchange on some of the big, juicy issues of the day: national identity, inclusion, pluralism, change.”

“In recent decades,” write Finn and Whitfield, the editors of this volume, “evangelicals in North America have shown a growing interest in missional thought and spiritual formation—but not necessarily at the same time. Unfortunately, though the missional and spiritual formation movements among evangelicals overlap each other chronologically, they have rarely intersected in meaningful ways.” In these pages, Finn (Union University) and Whitfield (Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary) have gathered a variety of Bible experts, theologians, historians, and other scholars committed to bringing these movements into more fruitful conversation.
