    Our fearless author, A. J. Jacobs, tackles a new intellectual adventure, an exploration of the most influential book in the world: the Bible. He determined that the best way to explore the Bible was to live it, as literally as possible. For one year.

    "Did he read the Bible before he started?"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, A.J. Jacobs is a very good narrator. I was continually anxious for what would be next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't remember the fellows name, the guy that helped him keep grounded in the Jewish Faith and all of it's twists.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Passover dinner.


    Did The Year of Living Biblically inspire you to do anything?

    No. I am a Born again Christian, I continually waited for A.J. to be inspired by the life of Jesus and the New Testament and find Jesus himself. What happened? He cut his beard and left his robe behind and became the same person he was before he started. As it turned out for A.J. the year was a "project" for a book and not something life altering that Jesus went to the Cross for.


    Any additional comments?

    I am glad that I spent the time with A.J. Jacobs. I do wish that he would understand that living biblically after the crucifixion of Jesus changed greatly. After Jesus died on the cross we must accept Him as the Messiah born of a virgin and ask Him to forgive our sins and the Trinity fills in where all of the "do this at this time" was in ancient" Trinity--Father,Son,Holy Spirit.
