Words That Changed the WorldThe most important words ever written are the Ten Commandments. These words changed the world when they were first presented at Mt. Sinai to the Israelites, and they are changing it now. They are the foundation stones of Western Civilization. Given their staggering importance, you would think that all societies, and certainly our educational and religious institutions, would be intent on studying them closely. Sadly, this is not the case. Our schools ignore them and our churches and synagogues take them for granted.

A short book describing the Ten Commandments.

I don't agree with everything the author writes such as suggesting the fifth commandment (honor thy father and mother) is the best antidote for totalitarianism.

Even if you are not a person of faith, there is much to be appreciated about the ten commandments explained in this book and how they can be used in society today.
