A.J. Jacobs narrates his spiritual journey of living according to biblical commands for one year in an effort to determine whether living the Bible literally will make him a better person. The biblical principles he adopts include the Ten Commandments, as well as lesser known commands on clothing, facial hair, eating insects, and stoning adulterers. What he doesn't realize is the effect his experiment will have on his soon-to-be-pregnant wife. Jacobs's delivery and timing are impeccable and frequently express his quixotic humor. His quest contains many choices, challenges, and epiphanies. The result is an extraordinary view of one man's search for God. Listeners will enjoy this well-narrated production for its wisdom and humor. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
