Publisher's Summary

The most important words ever written are the Ten Commandments. These words changed the world when they were first presented at Mt. Sinai to Israelites, and they are changing it now. They are the foundation stones of Western civilization.

Given their staggering importance, you would think that all societies, and certainly our educational and religious institutions, would be intent on studying them closely. Sadly, this is not the case. Our schools ignore them and our churches and synagogues take them for granted. But here's a simple test: Who among us can even name all of the Ten Commandments? And even among those who can name them, how many can explain them in a way that makes sense to the modern eye and ear?

If you are a person of faith, this book will strengthen it; if you are agnostic it will force you to rethink your doubts; if you're atheist, it will test your convictions. For people who have thought little about the Ten Commandments, as well as for those who have a sophisticated understanding of them, it will be a revelation.

That's a lot to ask of a short book, but the only thing that's short here is the length. The ideas are very big.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "A fresh take on the Decalogue!"

    I think that this is the first time that I have heard the Ten Commandments covered in such depth before and, with the exception of how I perceived the handling - or description of - the 1st Commandment (it came across as quite dismissive to me), I welcomed some of the clarifications and additional meanings. Once said, they make perfect sense, however I doubt that they've often been said!

    This is a study book, so I intend to obtain the PDF supplement and listen to it a few more times. Definitely worth the money!

    "A quick, bracing ethical tuneup"

    If your views are reasonably compatible with those expressed in the Ten Commandments, you will likely find this fits nicely into a busy modern schedule, and much of it is edifying.

    "Truth"

    This book wasn't anything I didn't already know but it defined how these principles are essential to maintaining order in our society.

    "Great book"
    Would you listen to The Ten Commandments again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to it again. There is a lot of new and interesting insights into the Ten Commandments. Definitely will take more than one listen to comprehend everything. Which is what makes a great book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed his explanation on the 3rd commandment "not take the name of the Lord in vain".


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is a relatively short book so it could easily be done in one setting but it is one you will want to listen to again.


    Any additional comments?

    Great insight into the commandments. I really appreciated the Jewish insight into the commandments because it gave me a great understanding behind different meanings for the commandments.

    Such a simple, yet profound solution to our society's ills. And not only society, but also in solving the corruption and misuse of politics and government. If only.......

    "Excellent"

    I would definitely recommend this book! Myself, I just wish it were a little longer. But many may like the fact that it is short. It does get you thinking about each commandment and its relevancy to today's world and issues of the day.
