Eric Butterworth has written a book about the 10 Commandments that was released in the 1970’s. It has recently been re-released with its new title, Breaking the 10 Commandments: Discover the Deeper Meaning.
The overall concept of this book is to help you better understand how to apply the 10 Commandments, found in the Old Testament, to your life today. The book is divided into chapters based on the commandments. These chapters then take each commandment and explain its meaning when written and also how to apply them now.
All the information on applying the 10 Commandments to your life today was beneficial. You will better understand what it means to not have idols that take our attention away from the Lord. Along with other principles you will learn what it means to honor your parents. Each commandment is explained in such a way that you will have no problem applying it to your day to day life.
All the information on what the commandments meant to the Israelites was actually the best part. It was very interesting to learn what some of the original words meant. These commandments were written to benefit the Israelites and help guide their lives.
This is a very in-depth book. There is a lot of information to take in and try to understand. I found parts of it hard to comprehend but overall it was helpful. If you are looking for a fast read this is not your book, but if you are looking for an in-depth book on the 10 Commandments this is it!
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
I gave this book 4/5 stars.
