Rate this:
Through a series of deftly-rendered vignettes, prominent historian Jenna Weissman Joselit offers a compelling and fresh-eyed perspective on the Ten Commandments, situating them within the context of modern America. Rich in incident and in colorful personalities of the 19th and 20th centuries, her account shows that the Ten Commandments are not cast in stone but a fertile repository of American history.
