Life & Faith: Ten Commandments

John Dickson explains how ten ancient instructions have shaped Western ideas about the good life.

“The Ten Commandments are among the great cultural icons of the West,” John Dickson writes in the introduction to his new book, ‘A Doubter’s Guide to the Ten Commandments’.

For some, doubters and believers alike, the Ten Commandments conjures an image of a white-bearded Charlton Heston standing on top of a mountain, with the voice of God booming like thunder from the sky, and lightning bolts of fire inscribing these ancient instructions on two tablets of stone.

But perhaps there’s more to the Ten Commandments than this mystical event.

In fact, John Dickson says that these ten ancient instructions have changed the world and shows us, even today, what it means to live a good life.
