The Ten Commandments for Jews, Christians, and Others

˹
Roger E. Van Harn
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 28 .. 2007 - 222 ˹
In this book eminent Jewish and Christian scholars come together to illuminate the Ten Commandments. Roger Van Harn has arranged the volume so that writers from both traditions dialogue over each of the Ten Words. A Christian or a Jew writes a penetrating essay about one of the commandments, followed by a shorter response from a member of the other tradition ? all done, remarkably, without sacrificing either Jewish or Christian identity. Unique for its authentic interfaith dialogue on dogmatic matters, The Ten Commandments for Jews, Christians, and Others offers pertinent guidelines for believing Jews and Christians today, with the goal of stimulating deeper conversation between the two groups. As Van Harn says, ?Listening to one another may hold pleasant surprises that open us to new possibilities.'? Contributors: Carl E. Braaten Roger Brooks Shalom Carmy James A. Diamond Elliot N.

˹ 1 - Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work; but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work...
˹ 1 - You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
