The Year of Living Biblically

jacobs.jpgI’m currently reading the book that inspired me to go on this series of 30 day tasks. It’s an interesting look into the mind of an agnostic and it’s awesome to see some of his honestly about himself and his journey. His goal is to live as traditionally as possible and has a number of aids to help him including a number of Bibles, concordances, and friends.

He uses a mix of humor (telling his son the truth about English Muffins instead of bagels) and insight of the Bible. For example, he analyzes the play, Inherit the Wind to the real record of the trial.

As a Christian, it’s pretty cool to see an agnostic person see value in the Bible, though in the beginning of the book, he’s still an agnostic and I’m sure he’ll end up that way.
