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?
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.
