Thinking about the origins of the Ten Commandments can be fun:

But according to journalist David Hazony, the commandments themselves are woefully under-valued and insufficiently understood by religious and non-religious thinkers alike. By his measure, they offer deep and valuable insights into how to form just societies and lead redemptive lives. He makes that argument in his new book, The Ten Commandments: How Our Most Ancient Moral Text Can Renew Modern Life, as well as in conversation with host Sara Ivry on Monday’s episode of Vox Tablet.
