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 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.

    "Refreshing!"

    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.

    Without audiobooks my mind would not have known nearly a fraction of what I have learned!

    "Informed"

    A refreshing and thought provoking look at well known scripture. My eyes were opened to a couple of commandments when described so in depth.

    "Wow! Dennis knocks it out of the park again!"

    Dennis, as always, takes a seemingly complex topic and makes it easy to understand and more importantly easy for the person learning to repeat and share with others. Thank you Dennis

    "Another great Dennis Prager book!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, it brings light to the importance of the ten commandments and how they help form a just society.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It brought understanding of stealing, jealousy, and how following the ten commandments can help society.

    "Everybody should listen and learn !"

    Great educational material for a better world. I learned extensively about the Ten Commandments in my younger years, but this was far superior to any knowledge I acquired earlier.
