The Ten Commandments : how our most ancient moral text can renew modern life by David Hazony( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 723 libraries worldwide
Journalist and philosopher David Hazony offers a new look at our most venerable moral text. Combining a fresh reading of the Old Testament's most riveting stories and ancient rabbinic legends with an exploration of what ails society today, Hazony shows that the Ten Commandments are not just a set of obscure laws but encapsulate a deeply valuable approach to life, as relevant now as it was when they first appeared more than two millennia ago. He begins with a daring claim: Although they have become a universally recognizable symbol of biblically based religion, they are not, strictly speaking, a religious text.

The Ten Commandments [how our most ancient moral text can renew modern life] by David Hazony( Sound Recording )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
Across the Western world, the Ten Commandments have become a source of inspiration and controversy, whether in court rulings, in film and literature, or as a religious icon gracing houses of worship of every denomination. But what do they really mean? According to polls, less than half of all Americans can even name more than four of them. For most of us, agnostics and faithful alike, they have been relegated to the level of a symbol, their teachings all but forgotten. In Western life today, the Ten Commandments are everywhere---except where we need them most. In The Ten Commandments, David Hazony offers a powerful new look at our most venerable moral text. Combining a fresh reading of the Bible's most riveting stories with a fearless exploration of what ails society today, Hazony shows that the Ten Commandments are not just a set of obscure laws but the encapsulation of a valuable, relevant approach to life
