The Ten Commandments are often portrayed as ominous warnings -- cold, harsh words from an all-powerful and vengeful God. This paperback release of the popular hardback The Tender Commandments recasts them as messages of love -- ten declarations of our Creator's love for us. Pastor and Gold Medallion award-winning author Ron Mehl interprets the Ten Commandments as guiding steps that can keep us from being bruised and broken by the deadly traps of a fallen world. He shows how, rather than running into the same brick walls of life, clawing helplessly up the same impassable sandbanks, we can be led by God's guiding Hand and walk through life with confidence.
