Filling a gap in the current literature, the author presents the first detailed study in English on the Quranic ten commandments as depicted from Surah Al An'am, verses (6:151, 152 and 153). The study is presented in two volumes. Volume I* covered an introduction and the first five Quranic commandments; and Volume II analyzed the last five commandments. The full meaning of each commandment is shown by studying the Quranic verses related to the subject, as well as the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions. With extensive research and careful selection of Quranic verses and reliable sources of Prophet Muhammad's traditions, this book would be beneficial to students and teachers of schools and academic institutions, religions comparative studies, Quranic study groups, interfaith group dialogues, as well as any Muslim or non-Muslim who is asking: "Is there anything in the Quran similar to the Ten Commandments in the Bible?

Compares and contrasts texts from the three religions as they deal with their origins, their role in society, the law, worship and the spiritual life, and the end of the world
This is volume two of a two-volume study of a war and moon god religion that was based on the Mideast moon god religion of Sin.
The world's three great monotheistic religions have spent most of their historical careers in conflict or competition with each other. And yet in fact they sprung from the same spiritual roots and have been nurtured in the same historical soil. This book--an extraordinarily comprehensive and approachable comparative introduction to these religions--seeks not so much to demonstrate the truth of this thesis as to illustrate it. Frank Peters, one of the world's foremost experts on the monotheistic faiths, takes Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and after briefly tracing the roots of each, places them side by side to show both their similarities and their differences. Volume I, The Peoples of God, tells the story of the foundation and formation of the three monotheistic communities, of their visible, historical presence. Volume II, The Words and Will of God, is devoted to their inner life, the spirit that animates and regulates them. Peters takes us to where these religions live: their scriptures, laws, institutions, and intentions; how each seeks to worship God and achieve salvation; and how they deal with their own (orthodox and heterodox) and with others (the goyim, the pagans, the infidels). Throughout, he measures--but never judges--one religion against the other. The prose is supple, the method rigorous. This is a remarkably cohesive, informative, and accessible narrative reflecting a lifetime of study by a single recognized authority in all three fields. The Monotheists is a magisterial comparison, for students and general readers as well as scholars, of the parties to one of the most troubling issues of today--the fierce, sometimes productive and often destructive, competition among the world's monotheists, the siblings called Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
This book is the sequel to Human Development in the Indian Context: A Socio-cultural Focus, Volume 1. A contextual complement to its prequel, this volume presents the major socio-psychological and cultural influences on the development of an Indian. This volume analyses development of person from childhood to adolescence in the Indian context. The author incorporates psychological, sociological, anthropological and even economic and socio-political dimensions that affect development, giving the work multi-disciplinary breadth. It has a futuristic perspective and focuses academic attention on social reality frames as well as on indigenized constructs, attempting to analyze through empirical data the development theories relevant to the Indian subject. While most books on the subject are based on Western patterns and examples, which are vastly different from the Indian setting, this book is context-specific and content-sensitive to the Indian psyche. It culminates its discussions with identifying the future foci that could give empirical information for creating a theoretical base on the development of the Indian.
This book will open your eyes, your heart, and your Spirit as you journey through each letter written to the Church. It is very much like the previous book, “Jesus is Coming-Soon, Are You Rapture Ready?” -- which was penned in the same manner as the letters written to the Church, by the Apostle Paul. The Pauline Letters, “Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon,” were written under the guise of the Holy Spirit. Each letter, in “Jesus is Coming Soon: Book II, Are You Walking In Wisdom?” as well as the previous book, “Jesus is Coming-Soon, Are You Rapture Ready?” are both written under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit for today’s Church. This book contains thirty one letters. It addresses distinct circumstances of the End Time Church. It can be read in succession or by a selection of the topic that interest you most. Each letter stands alone and is not to be considered a prerequisite of another. This book is meant to revive you and launch you into the newness of life. It will prick your conscience and cause you to check your walk with Christ.
The Ten Commandments are a set of rules or laws, God gave to the people of Israel. The commandments exist in different versions. One version can be found in the Book of Exodus of the Bible. Another version can be found in the Book of Horeb. In the book of Exodus, the mountain is called Mount Sinai, the book of Horeb talks about Mount Horeb. Both are probably different names for the same mountain. The rules were written on stone tablets. These rules are important for Judaism and Christianity and for all societies based on their principles. Sometimes these rules are also called Decalogue (from Greek, can be translated as ten statements). The name decalogue first occurs in the Septuagint. The Jews received the commandments after they had left Egypt during the reign of Pharaoh Thutmose. There are different texts talking about the commandments. Most of them are in the Bible: The Book of Exodus, Chapter 20 and the book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 5. The Noble Quran mentions the tablets but does not list exactly the same commandments. For instance The Noble Quran verse 17:23-39 starts with worshipping God alone (Tawhid) and honouring your parents.
Are the Commandments really written in stone? A biblical scholar offers an “engrossing and enlightening guide to one of the world’s great legal codes” (Booklist). In this lively, provocative book, Michael Coogan takes us into the ancient past to examine the Ten Commandments, also known as the Decalogue. How, among all the laws reportedly given on Mount Sinai, did the Ten Commandments become the Ten Commandments? When did that happen? There are several versions of the Decalogue in the Old Testament, so how have different groups determined which is the most authoritative? Why were different versions created? Coogan discusses the meanings the Ten Commandments had for audiences in biblical times and observes that the form of the ten proscriptions and prohibitions was not fixed—as one would expect since they were purported to have come directly from God—nor were the Commandments always strictly observed. In later times as well, Jews and especially Christians ignored and even rejected some of the prohibitions, although the New Testament clearly acknowledges the special status of the Ten Commandments. Today it is plain that some of the values enshrined in the Decalogue are no longer defensible, such as the ownership of slaves and the labeling of women as men’s property. Yet in line with biblical precedents, the author concludes that while a literal observance of the Ten Commandments is misguided, some of their underlying ideals remain valid in a modern context.
Both the Quran and Bible purportedly hold the keys to creation, but when you examine both closely, only one of them holds up. A closer examination of Muhammad’s life and the Quran shows that both are opposed to all that God declares pure and holy. Join author John Tharp, who has traveled the world and studied these texts side by side, as he explores • why it’s no accident that the Ten Commandments were omitted from the Quran; • which facts show Muhammad’s life and teachings are not pure and holy; • how Islam’s teachings contribute to a world full of turmoil. Tharp also examines the secrets that Muslims don’t share with people outside of their religion, as well as the future implications of the continuing conflict between Islam and Christianity. Cross the boundaries that divide Christianity, Islam and, other world religions to determine how and why they are different and why these differences are important. You’ll develop a deep understanding of how satanic deception breeds hostility against those who live a godly life in The Quran.
