Year of Living Biblically by A. J. Jacobs
Book DescriptionAvoiding shellfish was easy. The stoning of adulterers proved a little more difficult - and potentially controversial. Was it enough to walk up to an adulterer and gently touch them with a stone? Even that could be grounds for accusations of assault, especially with female adulterers in Manhattan. So what's a good Bible-reading boy to do? Raised in a secular family but increasingly interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J. Jacobs decides to dive in head first and attempt to obey the hundreds of less-publicized rules. 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.

Books By Author A. J. Jacobs
Drop Dead Healthy, Paperback (July 2013)
An account of one man's painful journey from slob to superman, and a fascinating and eye-opening examination of what it really means to be healthy. It reveals the ugly truth about the assumptions and obsessions we have about our bodies.
My Experimental Life, Paperback (June 2010)
The author puts himself to a series of bizarre and ridiculous tests, from total obedience to his long-suffering wife and 'Radical Honesty', to living as a beautiful woman and outsourcing his personal life to India (whether sending an email, having a weekly chat with his parents or arguing with his wife).
Know-it-All, Paperback (February 2006)
As an editor at "Esquire", AJ Jacobs had built up knowledge of celebrity trivia - and the cure was going to take a long time. While others read a broadsheet at the weekend, or become casual newsnight enthusiasts, Jacobs elected to read the "Encyclopaedia Britannica". Part assemblage of trivia, part journey through adulthood, this is fun to read.
Fractured Fairy Tales, Paperback (November 1999)» View all books by A. J. Jacobs
Culled from the 1960s television cartoon series of the same name, a collection of off-the-wall revisions of immortal fairy tales is illustrated with art from the original series.
