Foucault in Exile
While he ultimately discovers meaning in some of the most problematic of the Bible's laws, A. J. Jacob's entertaining recollection of his effort to live a literally Biblically - mandated life for one year highlight the dangers lurking in Biblical literalism. He emphasizes the need to respond to sacred scripture with a critical eye, championing "cafeteria religion" despite the disapproval of fundamentalists.
Fun, interesting, humorous, yet also insightful and reflective. Give this very short speech an attentive ear.
