Publisher's Description

The 10 Commandments -- the laws given to Moses by God -- are beyond the scope of human law. They are rules meant to hold us together but, when dishonored, they lead to discord and violence.
In this fierce, articulate narrative, Hedges, who graduated from seminary at Harvard Divinity School, looks through the lens of each commandment to examine the moral ruin of American society. With urgency and passion, he challenges readers to take a hard look at the disconnect between their supposed values and the shallow, self-absorbed lives many people actually lead.
Taking examples from his personal life and twenty years of reporting, Hedges explores one commandment at a time, each through a particular social group. With each story, he reveals the universal nature of personal suffering, discovery, and redemption -- and explores the laws that we have tried to follow, often unsuccessfully, for the past 6,000 years.

Author Bio

York Times, The Dallas Morning News, The Christian Science

2002 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting for The New York Times
coverage of global terrorism, and he received the 2002 Amnesty International
Global Award for Human Rights Journalism. Hedges is the author of the bestseller
American Fascists and National Book Critics Circle finalist for War Is
a Force That Gives Us Meaning. He is a Senior Fellow at The Nation Institute
and a Lannan Literary Fellow and has taught at Columbia University, New York
University and Princeton University.

Editorial Reviews

"At a time when the mere mention of religion can excite so much passion . . . and discord, Losing Moses on the Freeway offers sane and bracing ways to think about, and rethink, the whole subject of faith." -- O, The Oprah Magazine
"Unfailingly well-written, compelling, and disturbing. . . . It's not an easy faith that Hedges describes, and that is the point." -- The American Prospect
"Hedges' main point is that America is a nation marked by self-satisfaction, false piety, hypocrisy, and covetousness and that its institutions and culture aid and abet these very real failings. . . . If you're fed up with the sorry state of things in America today and aren't sure why, Hedges lays it out for you here." -- Baltimore Sun
