HILARIOUS......

From the best selling author of "The Know it all", comes a fascinating and hilarious exploration of religion and the Bible.

One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible. 399 pages

Raised in a secular family but increasingly interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J.Jacobs decides to dive in headfirst and attempt to obey the Bible as literally as possible for one full year. He vows to follow the Ten Commandments. To be fruitful and multiply. To love his neighbour. But also to obey the hundreds of less publicised rules: to avoid wearing clothes made of mixed fibers; to play a ten-string harp; to stone adulterers.

Throughout the book, Jacobs also embeds himself in a cross-section of communities that take the Bible literally.

The resulting spiritual journey is at once funny and profound, reverent and irreverent, personal and universal, and will make you see history’s most influential book with new eyes. It will charm readers both secular and religious. It is part CliffsNotes to the Bible, part memoir, and part look into worlds unimaginable. Thou shalt not be able to put it down.
