    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.

    Jonathan says: "Excellent... But tongue in cheek"
    "Did he really give it his honest shot?"

    Story
    What did you like best about The Year of Living Biblically? What did you like least?

    There are some learnable lessons for anyone who considers themselves religious.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Jacobs made a lot of excuses that poorly reflected on his validity.


    Did A. J. Jacobs do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The characters were him and his family, with the occasional interview, so yes.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not, though apparently it might be happening.


    Any additional comments?

    Entertaining - yes. At times because it is a joke. I'm glad he was changed, but so much more was possible.
