The Ten Commandments are the first direct communication between a people and God. Designed to elevate our lives above mere frantic, animal existence to the sublime levels humanity is capable or experiencing, they are the blueprint of God's expectations of us and His plan for a meaningful, just, loving, and holy life. Each commandment asserts a principle, and each principle is a moral focal point for real-life issues relating to God, family, sex, work, charity, property, speech, and thought. Written in collaboration with Rabbi Stewart Vogel, The Ten Commandments incorporates lively discussion of the Bible and the Judeo-Christian values derived from it. Filled with passion, emotion, and profound insights, it will move, enlighten, inspire, entertain, and educate you on the meaning each commandment has in our daily lives today:

When it comes to the Ten Commandments, many theologians and spiritual leaders agree: the classic golden rules remain the best guiding principles available. Syndicated radio psychologist Dr. Laura Schlessinger utilizes these sacred Commandments to speak from her favorite pulpit of "do the right thing" therapy. Fans of Dr. Laura delight in her uncanny skill for zeroing in on the moral indiscretions and confusion at the core of most people's problems. With the Ten Commandments to back her up, Dr. Laura offers readers a day-to-day context for making healthy, loving, and morally correct choices. (So hopefully they can avoid the emotional pickles that her call-in guests frequently find themselves in.)
The esteemed Rabbi Stewart Vogel is the cowriter. As a result, the narrative fluctuates between real-life moral struggles (often based on people who've called into Dr. Laura's show) and biblical quotations that lead into intelligent, brief sermons. Readers who hunger for a clearer understanding of how the Ten Commandments can be applied to modern life will certainly be satisfied. Topics include "You Can't Ship God by UPS," "Which Vows Hold Water," "Honor Your Parents ... or Else," "Teachers Are Not Pets," and "Holy and Unholy Sex." --Gail HudsonAbout the Author:
