Product Excerpts and Related Resources


“Gamble has explored that question on her own and with groups and the result is a marvelous book that delves deeply into the commandments and their relevance to our lives today. Words of Love would be a meaningful resource for adult education, small groups and individual study, brought to life with the spiritual practices and reflection questions that conclude each chapter.” – The Presbyterian Outlook

“Using a rich level of story-telling, Gamble blends biblical scholarship with pastoral insight into the struggles of day-to-day life. This intimate engagement with the Ten Commandments beautifully highlights God's constant love and grace-filled care, as well as the potential transformation available to us.”

-Janice E. Catron, author of God’s Vision, Our Calling

“Here we have a splendid, substantial study of the Ten Commandments, the ‘Ten Words’ as the author explains their meaning and context. Gamble combines excellent writing with good scholarship and vivid storytelling.”

-Lou Weeks, President and Professor Emeritus, Union Presbyterian Seminary

Words of Love demonstrates Gamble’s myriad gifts as preacher, teacher and writer. Gamble’s generous reading of this foundational Scripture evokes a sense of wonder, rather than fear, creativity instead of restriction. The spiritual practices and questions at the end of each chapter make it a perfect book for both individual and group study.”

-Jill Duffield, author of Lent in Plain Sight and Advent in Plain Sight

“A wonderfully fresh take on the Ten Commandments. Drawing on Hebrew word meanings, scholarship, and a rich array of stories, Gamble offers healing for those who have felt shamed and condemned by these verses. Exploring the ‘Ten Words’ as God’s self-revelation and invitation to participate in the Beloved Community, this book deserves to be widely read, discussed, and worked through. It holds great promise for individual and communal transformation.”

-Marjorie Thompson, author of Soul Feast and Forgiveness
