HURST, TX (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — RoseDog Books, an imprint of Dorrance Publishing Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania announced the October 2005 release of “The 11th Commandment” (ISBN 0-8059-9823-3) by Abraham B. Medina. The book is concise for easy reading and its dissertation-type presentation comes from the writer’s background as a professional science editor. A universal non-fundamentalist approach to faith and a political treatise on the politics of the war in Iraq is absorbed within a beautiful love story.
The chapter on religion challenges religious fundamentalism and emphasizes the sanctity of every human life. When the hero declares to the girl “I am an atheist believing only in intelligence and what my five senses tell me…” the heroine answers “God understands you. He is not going to smite you and send you to hell…God knows better and is far greater than that.”

In the politics section, the hero declares “What right do we have to dictate the kind of government a nation should have? Have we not learned from history that nations, like individuals, have their own pride and will never bow down to any nation to tell them what to do?…”
The chapters on the wages of the war describe the suffering and death among both our troops in the battlefield and the civilians caught in crossfire. The hero declares “indeed, God’s Thou Shalt not Kill commandment could not be taken lightly especially if you witnessed first hand, its intensity in war where a seemingly endless flow of the maimed and the dying was the order of the day and of the night, a surrealism I could hardly endure…”
The reader will find candid answers to basic questions most Americans and people from all over the world who have been wanting to know why a war was launched that has consequently damaged the credibility and popularity of the president and his administration.
The author, Mr. Abraham B. Medina is a retired biomedical information scientist who worked and lived near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, not far from Lancaster, home of some 20,000 Amish. He has a graduate degree in biology.
