The Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes: Biblical Studies and Ethics for Real Life

In The Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes Yiu Sing Lúcás Chan brings together biblical studies and Christian ethics to look at these foundational texts in a new way. For each passage Chan asks both what the text meant and what they mean today. He helps readers to carefully study the text’s original meaning, then interpret the text within a sound ethical framework.


A Lúcás Chan Reader: Pioneering Essays on Biblical and Asian Theological Ethics

Roughly 15 years ago, each of the editors met Yiu Sing Lúcás Chan, George first, then Jim. From the beginning Lúcás was a younger theological colleague. Like others, Lúcás asked each of us to review his writings before he submitted them. His untimely death interrupted the work of a true pioneer, as Joshua McElwee called him in an obituary in the National Catholic Reporter. But even those who knew some of his writings would have no idea of just how much he had written. Moreover, since his writings were so widely published (Germany, Poland, Japan, Macau, India, Philippines, and US), many would not know where to find them.

As his two readers, we decided to honor his legacy by editing a collection of some of his writings. Two unpublished writings bookend this collection. In 2014, he submitted to Marguette University an “intellectual autobiography.” We begin the collection with these words. A week before he died, Lúcás presided at his Jesuit community liturgy. The words of his sermon were then and now remarkably consoling and so we close the collection with these words.
