Summary

Can you name the ten commandments? That's all right...you're not alone. More people claim to live by the ten commandments than those who know what they are, let alone what they mean. In this audio program, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, author of the best selling How Could You Do That? and host of her own internationally syndicated radio program, and Rabbi Stewart Vogel, spiritual leader of Temple Aliyah in Woodland Hills, CA, collaborate to read their modern application of God's laws, incorporating lively discussions on the Bible and the Judeo-Christian values derived from it.

The Ten Commandments

This book should be mandatory reading for anyone delving into Judeo/Christian studies. My one wish is that Audible had the unabridged version.

The research and clear explanation of the Ten Commandments is wonderful. This is not just a book on what the commandments are, but rather why they are, and how the imapct of each one reaches far and wide into everyones' lives whether they are a Christian or a Jew.

The content of this book is 5 stars...the reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because I found the Rabbi's voice to be distracting because of his lisp. Dr. Laura and the Rabbi trade off every other commandment and I found myself bracing inside when I realized Dr. Laura's segment was coming to an end.

Please do not let that change your mind about this book though. The quality of the information inside is too good to pass up.

Worth a Listen yet not as good as her other books

it was hard to listen to for the first half of the book but I did push myself to continue listening. in the end I'm glad I did. even if it was more of a recap of things I already knew there were points that just cut you down because their right, you have let things slip by. so I'd recommend we put these factors of the 10 commandments and what is shared into our lives. to better live and be good as God would want it to be and not society.

I've listened to 3 of her books and all deserve a 5 star rating. But the reason I wasn't too impressed with this one was

1st because the Rabi she has randomly reading chapters sounds as if he has a retainer in his mouth as he reads. when he read the 3rd commandment and says Idolatry I thought he was saying Adultery.
2ed I thought they were going to make a religious book about the Bible. instead it became a book where it compares Jewish religion with Christians. Not mentioning another bible chapter and verse to reference beside the 10 commandments.
3rd Now I'm not going to say it's a bad book. it's a good book for those that aren't familiar with the bible. or has ever considered living what the good book tells then to live. yet I being dedicated to the Bible growing up this book sounded like listing to a series of sermons of how to relate the commandments to today's life.
