According to polls less than half of all Americans can even name than four of them Fewer still can name all ten or have a clear idea of the ideals they were meant to promote For most of us agnostics and faithful alike they have been relegated to the level of a symbol and the teachings they contain are 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 Old Testament’s most riveting stories and ancient rabbinic.

Legends with a fearless 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—one that is as relevant now as it was when they first appeared than two millennia ago The Ten Commandments 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 Rather than making a statement about faith or mystical realms inaccessible to reason they contain a coherent prescription for how to make a better world At their core stands what Hazony calls the spirit of redemption which he describes as one of the two basic spiritual components of Western civilization While the Greeks gave us the spirit of reason teaching that we should be free to explore and express our views the spirit of redemptio.

    Epub The Ten Commandments MOBI ð The Ten MOBI :↠ ✓ anthropomorphic.co commandments kindle, The Ten download, The Ten Commandments PDF/EPUBAbout the only thing I had an issue with in this book is the fact that my own view of the Talmud is far less than that of the author  This is a book written by a conservative or Orthodox Jew for someone who at least has a belief that the Talmud has insight to give to contemporary readers  I would have liked to have seen biblical exegesis and fewer stories from the Talmud  It is striking to see how the author views the Bible including the Ten Commandments through the filter of what centuries of uninspired rabbis thought about it  That said the author is fundamentally right that paying attention to the Ten Commandments would help to renew modern life  I don't think it very likely that this will happen but to the extent that it is possible it is something that should be encouraged and this book is one I can recommend to a reader who is at least willing to read stories about how it is that failing to stick up for a guest may have helped sabotage Jewish freedom in Rome a

    Epub The Ten Commandments MOBI ð The Ten MOBI :↠ ✓ anthropomorphic.co commandments kindle, The Ten download, The Ten Commandments PDF/EPUB The Ten Commandments By David Hazony is a very realistic traditional but truly modern book that addresses Moses’ ten ‘Laws’ factually Hazony takes ideal measures while handling each of the ten verses of the commandments as fragments of human beings’ versatile measures which should be taken with due regards to respect integrity compassion forgiveness understanding lust violence falsehood adultery poverty and treason The format of the writing which the author uses to address the Ten Commandments is very much residing on in depth and informative analysis of both today’s world and that of the biblical The idea behind redemption and that of the real significance of the first commandment is displayed through variable perspectives on God as the latter being the deliverer from misery The central story of the bible is taken to a relevant stand with meaningful and consistent exploration of modern social issues

    Epub The Ten Commandments MOBI ð The Ten MOBI :↠ ✓ anthropomorphic.co commandments kindle, The Ten download, The Ten Commandments PDF/EPUBI am only on chapter 5 of an obvious 10 and I adore this book There are so many truly awful books on this important subject Dr Laura springs to mind As a progressive but observant reform Jew I feel that most texts on the 10 commandments either side step the difficult issue of what do we do with a God who gives utterances which is a far better translation of the Hebrew or they march in lock step to the simple drum beat of fundamentalism This book walks a careful elegant line between scholarship and moral prescription It's not particularly heady but challenging This text examines the ten commandments with in their historical and cultural contexts but does not leave them there

    Epub The Ten Commandments MOBI ð The Ten MOBI :↠ ✓ anthropomorphic.co commandments kindle, The Ten download, The Ten Commandments PDF/EPUBA very well written interesting and instructive book The author starts from the Ten Commandments and uses them as a base to explore or touch on the whole Bible rabbinic lore Mark Twain CS Lewis on and on Each Commandment gets its own essayHis interpretations of the few lines of the Commandments are thought provoking but sometimes too inventive for me He reminded me of reading GKChesterton so smooth that he can make you think that white is black and black is white I particularly disagreed with Hazony saying that coveting your neighbor's house and wife etc is caused by the sin of insecurity A lot of criminals seem uite sure of themselves to me
