Are the Ten Commandments absolute or conditional? Is idolatry still a problem for contemporary people? Does a child have an obligation to honor an abusive or selfish parent? Is assisted suicide a form of murder? Does the spirit of capitalism contradict the commandment against coveting? This book discusses the most quoted section of the Bible in the context of today's complicated moral issues, and from the perspective of the Sages of the Jewish tradition. It shows how ten simple utterances are both timely and timeless.
