Ask yourself Would it be fun to literally follow the bible for one year If like most people I know would answer no then un away from this book as fast as you can I got about 200 pages in when I ealized I can t fucking stand this guy and his story is getting old uicklyHere s the problem There are so many etarded things the bible says you should and shouldn t do Take for example do not lie thou shalt not lie or however they fucking say it in there You could write a long entertaining article about what life would be like telling nothing but the absolute truth to those around you the absolute truth to those around you AJ Jacobs actually did that in an Esuire article that is easily one of the best magazine articles I ve ever The Magistrates' Court: An Introduction (Fifth Edition) read Here s the article But there are so GK Chesterton once wrote Christianity has not been tried and found wanting it has been found difficult and not tried In this book AJ Jacobs not only tries Christianity he tries out the whole Bible both the Jewish and the Christian ScripturesHe does indeed find it difficult But he doesn t find it wanting In fact his year long uest to follow all of the commands of the Bibleesults in a most delightful and insightful eadIt is delightful because Jacobs is such an engaging writer His style and approach are uite efreshing in this age of vitriolic attack Most books on Nomadische Lebenswelten Und Zarische Politik: Der Aufstand In Zentralasien 1916 religion these days are apologetic trying to thrust an opinion onto theeader often through dense prose or angry The Crimson Thread: A Retelling of Rumpelstiltskin rhetoric that dismisses those who disagree Such books are one sided and narrow minded Jacobs however breaks free of the contemporary love for irony sarcasm and a It s mean of me to say so because it s clear that writing it was aather significant spiritual experience for Jacobs but this book is just silly It s meant to be entertaining yet thought provoking but I only found it mildly entertaining and not at all thought provoking I actually found his wife funnier than him My favorite part by far was when she was temporarily unclean and it annoyed her to be thought of that way so in revenge she sat on all the furniture so that AJ would she sat on all the furniture so that AJ would no place to sit when he got home Now that was funny This is what I call a snork book So funny in parts that if you are drinking coffee its going to come spluttering out of your nose AJ Jacobs is a secular Jew me too and spends two thirds of this book The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog's Life Quality and Longevity researching biblical law and trying to live it The last third addresses the New Testament in the same way Living biblically for AJ means dressing in whiteobes growing a ZZ Top beard and trying to literally fulfil each commandment even if terribly embarrassing Like buying "the guy behind him in Starbucks a coffee a guy he doesn t "guy behind him in Starbucks a coffee a guy he doesn t to be generous To fulfil not lying when his wife meets old school friends who say let s get together for a play date he tells them no he s not interested in making new friends No Beast So Fierce: The Terrifying True Story of the Champawat Tiger, the Deadliest Animal in History right now and so it goes Along the way practising the laws inidiculous ways or trying to understand Close to the Land: The Way We Lived in North Carolina, 1820-1870 ridiculous laws he points out the side benefits. The Significant Seven September 2007 Make no mistake AJ Jacobs is not aeligious man He describes himself as Jewish in the same way the Olive Garden is an Italian estaurant Yet his latest work The Year of Living Biblically One Man'. ,
The peace and est of the sabbath day the inner thanksgiving prayer calls forth and perhaps most important the utter gratitude to anyone or no one just for having life and a familyIts a great fun book to ead and this little bit of moralising is like the salt on your food it would be nice without it but that extra savour makes it even enjoyable My fiancee has been bugging me for months to ead this book and I am oh so glad that I finally did Her enthusiasm for it was
Unflagging She Brought Home 
she brought home advanced Münchhausen's Pigtail, or Psychotherapy Reality reader s copy from work as soon as she heard it was in the works She then bought at least two copies for friends during the holidays bought them even though she works for the publisher and could have probably finagled a pair of free ones But I kept hesitating despite her praise For one thing it s non fiction which I sometimes take to sneering at mostly because I know that mosteaders would ather ead a non fiction book about the history of Cod than a work of new fiction by some bright young author My fiancee incidentally works for a fairly strictly non fiction imprint so she The Pink Pearl reads a ton of it now and so I feel it s my silent duty to even out the scales Finally I made the mistake she was waiting for I was set to embark upon a long flight followed by a two day car trip followed by another long plane trip She caught me staring at my shelf disappointedly and I said I don t have anything I feel likeeading I d fallen Migrant Resistance in Contemporary Europe right into her evil trap of course because no sooner did I blink and her advancedeader s copy of The Year of Living Biblically was The Violinist and The Son of Redhead: Two Plays by Leonard Melfi resting in my hands Just to keep things balanced I stillead Vile Bodies firstOf course she was Fairy Tales are True: Silent Reach from the Dunes to the Khumba Mela right The Year of Living Biblically was fantastic The author AJ Jacobs Esuire writer and previous author of The Know It All which is about himeading the Encyclopedia Brittanica from A to Z decides that he is going to try and live the Bible as literally as possible for one year This means not just the Ten Commandments which would be difficult enough as it was but as many of the hundreds of minor commandments that scattered along the way between Genesis and of minor commandments that are scattered along the way between Genesis and eading the book was certainly enhanced because I was coincidentally simultaneously concluding a sixteen week evening Introduction to Judaism course My fiancee you won t be surprised to learn was also the driving force behind the class But I digress the point is that the book is written such that even if you ve never set foot in a eligious center or Dying to Be Ill: True Stories of Medical Deception read a line of the Bible you ll still be able to enjoy it immensely aside from which you will also learn everything you never knew you wanted to know about the BibleJacobs begins his yearlong uest as an agnostic non practicing Jew living in New York City with his wife Julie and a two year old son Jasper He dives in with earnestness and naivet certain only that he is going to suffer immensely as he begins to work He compiles a list of commandments and tries to follow as many as he. S Humble uest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible is an insightful and hilarious journey foreaders of all faiths Though no fatted calves were harmed in the making of this book Jacobs chronicles 12 months living a emarkabl.
Can as literally as possible Soon he discovers as did his Philosophy in Social Work religious Jewish brethren long ago that dozens are actually impossible to follow at all because they involve things like sacrificing animals at a Temple that was destroyed two thousand years or so ago But he grows his beard out he wears all white he builds a Sukkot in his livingoom He stops shaking hands with women for fear they may be impure which incidentally causes trouble with the aforementioned wife Julie He stones an adulterer eats locusts gets a slave intern writes out the Ten Commandments on his doorframe and so on and so forth Of course he also tries to pray diligently cease lying cease coveting and figure out how to better aise his son By the end he has certainly changed although I won t uin it by explaining exactly how He puts it well in his introduction if Present AJ were to have coffee with Year Ago AJ they would both leave wondering what the hell was wrong with the otherWhen I was about halfway through the book I confessed to my fiancee that I loved it and she d been ight all along halfway through the book I confessed to my fiancee that I loved it and she d been ight all along smiled and said that the way he thinks just made her feel like she was in my head which I took as a high compliment even though I know she means both the parts where he is being soulful and brilliant and the parts where he is struggling with his own flaws She s got me pegged though I d been having the exact same sensation in some places I felt like I was eading a transcript of thoughts I d been having over the past few months as I too debated God s existence as I delved into our Judaism class In the beginning Jacobs makes a list of things he covets and his first item is Jonathan Safran Foer s eading fee an alleged 15000 Now I knew plenty of other writers in grad school who were insanely jealous of JSF s Bipedal, By Pedal: Confidential Mad Libs rise to fame and I was even one who held out and always claimed he was a truly great writer when others were hating him see earlier entry on JSF s 2nd book I suppose there may not be a writer under the age of 40 in New York that isn t somewhat jealous of him But it was wonderful to see it laidight out in print Jacobs also admits to Googling himself and checking his sales anking every day also bad habits I m surely forming Later he is making a List Of Lies He of lies he in just one day Numero Uno I lied to Julie about how much internet access at Starbucks costs I told her 8 instead of 10 so she d be 20 percent less annoyed Yep I d do thatIn the end the book may not make you want to go out and grab a Bible but it might It at least got me to esolve to at least keep eading the weekly portions as I ve been doing the past few months during my class More than anything I liked that the book made me think about what I m going to be like someday with my son and to appreciate the fact that I have a fiancee like Julie in the book who knows I ll love the book and will harass me to ead it for months without fail And who eads books this insightful and honest and believes that s how I think. Y strict Biblical life full of charity chastity and facial hair as impressive as anything found in The Lord of the Rings Through it all he manages to brilliantly keep things light while avoiding the sinful eye of judgment Dave Callan. .
