A short collection of reflections on each of the ten commandments taken in turn, exploring their nuances, exceptions, and difficulties. The readings were okay, but the most enjoyable part was the last chapter, when the editor "talks back" to each of the authors and explains his difference of interpretation from theirs. I felt that if the entire book had been more of a dialogue among the authors, a synthesis of different interpretations with the acknowledgment that perhaps following the commandments isn't so straightforward, the book would have been stronger for it.
