A BETTER TEN COMMANDMENTS: A GUIDE TO LIVING LIFE WITH, AND ON PURPOSE by JAMES MILLER.
Do we know better than God?
Is it our duty rather than a deities to make the most of our lives?
For the millions of non-believers and the rapidly growing number of religiously disaffected, A Better Ten Commandments filters through the chaos and confusion of everyday life and provides a foundational framework for finding fulfilment without taking anything on faith.
It combines the best from history and philosophy, religion and science in a simple yet powerful framework that you can incorporate into your life.
A Better Ten Commandments is about who we are, what we want, and what truly matters in life. The only life you can count on.
