Item Description...
Overview
An in-depth study of how the Ten Commandments impacted the development of laws in America and influenced the legal philosophy of government framers. For example, the 4th Commandment-"Keey Holy the Sabbath" was cited in PENNSYLVANIA'S FRAME OF GOVERNMENT, April 25, 1682, Article XXII: "That as often as any day of the month....shall fall upon the first day of the week, commonly called the Lord's Day, the business appointed for that day shall be deferred till the next day" and the US Constitution, 1787, Art.I, Sec. 7 "If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted)...the Same shall be a Law". Read how the Ten Commandments affected the views of America's leaders: "The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days."-Harry S. Truman, February 15, 1950, Attorney General's Conference.

Publishers Description
An in-depth study of how each of the Ten Commandments had a historical impact on the development of laws in America and affected the legal philosophy of our government framers. For example, the 4th Commandment-"Keep Holy the Sabbath": PENNSYLVANIA FRAME OF GOVERNMENT, April 25, 1682, Article XXII: "That as often as any day of the month...shall fall upon the first day of the week, commonly called the Lord's Day, the business appointed for that day shall be deferred till the next day, unless in the case of emergency." U.S. CONSTITUTION, 1787, Article I, Section 7, Paragraph 2 "If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law" Read how the Ten Commandments affected the views of America's leaders: "The Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount contain my religion" - John Adams, Nov. 4, 1816, letter to Thomas Jefferson. "The fundamental basis of this nation's laws was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days." - Harry S Truman, Feb. 15, 1950, Attorney General's Conference. See references to the Ten Commandments in court cases: "The Ten Commandments have had an immeasurable effect on Anglo-American legal development" - U.S. District Court, Crockett v. Sorenson, W.D. Va. (1983) "It is equally undeniable ...that the Ten Commandments have had a significant impact on the development of secular legal codes of the Western World." - U.S. Supreme Court, Stone v. Graham, (1980) (Rehnquist, J., dissenting) An ideal book forstudents, teachers, journalists, writers and those interested in researching the foundations of American law

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hard to hear for secularists but EXCELLENT!  Apr 23, 2008
This is a book very much needed these days. Even the constitution leaves out the Sunday according to the 4th commandment and the framers of the consitution signed it :in the name of our LORD". Which LORD? Mohammed? Marx? Darwin? You know better than that...
 
Where is the evidence?  Aug 26, 2007
Before you read this book, do a little research on your own. If the Ten Commandments played a role in the formation of the laws of this country, you would hope to see them discussed in the forums where these laws were formulated. For example, the transcripts of the Constitutional Convention, the Federalists Papers, the transcripts of the first meetings of our new Congress, all are logical places where the Decalogue would have to be discussed to claim its role in US history. Are they there? No. The Supreme Court has never cited the Ten Commandments as a legal authority for any of their decisions. Federer's arguments are fuzzy and dance around the edges of reality. This is not a book for those who want their history without attached agendas!
 
My Favorite Part of the Commandments  Jul 2, 2006
Where does this fit into American Law:

You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me
