Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Psychologist Felder (Making Peace with Your Parents) presents the Ten Commandments "...not as ancient artifacts or angry warnings but as useful psychological insights about how to have a fulfilling life." After years of being interested in spirituality and studying with various spiritual teachers and on his own, Felder feels that "...the issues raised by the Ten Commandments are ten of the most essential challenges we face in our lives." Among the issues he raises are how to honor one's parents when they have been abusive and how to keep from being seduced or addicted by habits or lifestyles that interfere with the achievement of personal potential. Each chapter includes spiritual and psychological exercises intended to help readers attain insight into the various commandments. While Felder's use of the Ten Commandments offers a road map to spiritual health in contemporary society, most of his insights are based on nothing more profound than common sense. (Mar.)
Library Journal
Felder (coauthor, with Harold H. Bloomfield, Making Peace with Yourself, 1986) here reexamines the overlooked wisdom of the Ten Commandments. Referring to the Exodus precepts as the "ten challenges," Felder offers subtle interpretations of each commandment that are more far reaching and difficult to put into practice than the traditional shalt-nots that we've come to take for granted. For example, Felder interprets the sixth precept, usually phrased "thou shalt not kill," to mean that we should take care not to crush any person's spirit, including our own. These ancient commandments take on fresh relevance as Felder illustrates their deeper meanings and possibilities for application in daily life. A sophisticated yet practical addition to spiritual self-help collections.
