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!
