Are the Ten Commandments a set of laws, rules for living a good life, or Words from God? Learn the story behind the ten laws that served as a guiding light of Judeo-Christian belief.
This historical book covers more than the story of Moses. Take a look back at the time when the commandments were written, how the belief in one all-powerful God set the Israelites apart from other ancient peoples, and the roles of the Ten Commandments played in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Examine what each individual commandment means, and how together they form the basis of leading a moral life as well as forming a just government.
