A.J. Jacobs - The Year of Living Biblically

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2007/10/24/A_J__Jacobs_Year_of_Living_Biblically Author A.J. Jacobs discusses the motivations behind his book, "The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Qest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible." ----- A.J. Jacobs discusses "The Year of Living Biblically." "The Year of Living Biblically" answers the question: What if a modern-day American followed every single rule in the Bible as literally as possible. Not just the famous rules - the Ten Commandments and Love Thy Neighbor (though certainly those). But the hundreds of oft-ignored ones: don't wear clothes of mixed fibers. Grow your beard. Stone adulterers. A.J. Jacobs' experiment is surprising, informative, timely and funny. It is both irreverent and reverent. It seeks to discover what's good in the Bible and what is maybe not so relevant to 21st century life. And it will make you see the Good Book with new eyes. Thou shalt not put it down. A.J. Jacobs is an editor at large at Esquire magazine, for which he wrote the article "My Outsourced Life". His last book was "The Know-It-All" in which he described the process of reading the entire Encyclopedia Britannica. - Cody's Books
