Using an approach similar to the one he took in Parables from the Back Side and Old Testament Stories from the Back Side, J. Ellsworth Kalas opens new possibilities of insights into the familiar Ten Commandments. Restating them in the positive, Kalas explores how these "prohibitive" laws actually are our dear friends, intended to make life richer and more fulfilling. Kalas uses contemporary illustrations and personal experience to show how these timeless laws give us an appetite for divine excellence.

SonjaAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5December 27, 2009SonjaAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleOur class just finished this study and everyone felt they had gained a lot more practical, relevant feeling of what these commands mean to us as Christians today. They reflect God's love in wanting us to live in the best way to bring good to ourselves and others. The questions in the back for each chapter are good, but we also enjoyed just discussing the 9-12 pages of reading for each week. I asked them to mark the things in their books which most impressed them and then I let them bring out the highlights of each chapter before we discussed the questions.
Gale L. Player5 Stars Out Of 5August 29, 2008Gale L. PlayerThe author has done a wondwrful job of presenting known material to most of us in a very interesting new way. His down-to-earth thoughts are able to give readers of all ages a lot to think about. I questioned the title at first and didn't know what to expect. The book is well worth the nominal cost.
