Publisher's Description

As Christians, we learn the ten commandments and use them as guides to help us in our relationships with our loved ones, our neighbors, and God. God gave the ten commandments to us because He only wants what's good for us. But what do they tell us about living in today's world? How do we follow guides that were written thousands of years ago?

Living the Ten Commandments as a Catholic Today is written to "open up" the commandments and make them understandable and relevant for our lives today. Their messages are timeless--tell the truth, respect your parents, don't commit adultery--but it's hard sometimes to put their meaning into the context of today's hectic, fast-paced world. This book brings the holy messages alive and helps us understand that the word of God lives on through our actions and reactions to the world around us.

In this book, the ten commandments are viewed and explained in contemporary language through modern eyes, but the message is the same--God loves us and wants us to be happy. These guides that he gave for living a fruitful life enable us to be happy and be good neighbors, good spouses, good children, and good parents.

Living the Ten Commandments as a Catholic Today provides an additional meditation to the originally published articles that "Bring Home the Message" of the commandments. With questions after each chapter, this book would be perfect for small groups discussions or personal reflection.
