Religious leaders and scholars have been interpreting the Ten Commandments since Moses received them. From Jesus' Sermon on the Mount to the rich tradition of thousands of years of rabbinical teachings to Christian and Muslim interpretations of The Law, the literal, practical, and spiritual wisdom has provided a context for meaning and fulfillment and guided our values and lives. Psychologist, activist, scholar, and best-selling author Leonard Felder, Ph.D., gathers all of these rich traditions and adds a contemporary psychological view of them: He sees the Ten Commandments as essential challenges that we face every day of our lives as well as principles that give us perspective on what really matters in life.
Dr. Felder goes back to the original Hebrew meanings of each of the Ten Words from which the Ten Commandments have been derived and interpreted by Jewish and Christian religious scholars, and gives their deeper meanings, which have been lost over the centuries.
Drawing from the case histories of his own psychotherapy practice and stories from other world religions and ethnic traditions, Dr. Felder transforms the Bible's precepts into practical techniques for the daily management and release of spiritually destructive emotions. His wise counsel is a principled template for a way of life that provides genuine fulfillment and joy.
