In his new book, THE YEAR OF LIVING BIBLICALLY, author A.J. Jacobs does just that — and now he’s discussing his story with Beliefnet members. From playing the harp on New York City streets to hammering idols and stoning adulterers, Jacobs has a remarkable journey. Join the book club to meet A.J., ask questions and get the inside scoop his year-long biblical life, and join his thoughtful — and hilarious -investigation into faith. THE YEAR OF LIVING BIBLICALLY is the December 2007 Featured Book of the Exploring Faith Book Club.
