Ten Commandments Booklet Updated

Ten Commandments Booklet Updated and Reprinted

Earlier this week we completed and approved for printing an updated version of our booklet The Ten Commandments. This has been one of our most popular booklets, with more than a quarter million copies printed and distributed since it was originally produced 12 years ago (that works out to more than 1,700 copies sent out each month for the last 12 years).

This newly designed version has been converted to color with photos added to make it more readable and attractive. Printing on lighter paper will make it less expensive to mail, which will save us money on postage. The updated version will be available on our Web site soon.

Several years ago we started a lengthy project to update our booklet library, also redesigning them and converting them to color. With this booklet, 27 of our 33 booklets are updated and redesigned. Tom Robinson has done tremendous work in updating the content of these booklets, and Shaun Venish has done a great job on their redesigns.

We look forward to completing updates on the remainder of the booklets this coming year so we can get to work on several other needed new booklets.

  1. Hopefully the book warns you break the eighth commandment when you don’t smile. That was part of my pastor’s message last weekend.

    • If you don’t smile? Explain?

      • The pastor said the “flip side” of “thou shalt not steal” is giving. He declared if you don’t “give a smile” or a proper hug to other people, you’re thus in violation of that commandment.

  2. Thanks for the update
    Will the booklets be sent to members or do we apply
    for them.

    • Ms. Pyle,
      SInce the textual content did not change significantly, there are no plans to send a fresh copy to all the membership. The main updates were graphical in nature.

  3. Will they be available during the Feast of Tabernacles for the brethren to take home?

    • Ramon, you will need to write in to request a copy if you’d like a copy of the new layout. The text is very similar. The main change is color and some graphics. You can also view the PDF version online to see how it looks.
