During it he looks again at the Ten Commandments- the narrative about David and his children- the ethical issues of ecology, sexual morality and property- human morality as the express command of God- and the motivation for moral conduct. By the end of the book it is clear that although the Old Testament comes to us from a remote, alien and apparently unsophisticated context, the powerful minds who worked on its books still have things to say which remain evocative and suggestive for our own moral enquiries.
