"The Year of Living Biblically"
by: A.J. Jacobs
Here's what I've been reading for the last couple days. It's funny as well as educational. I heard A. J. Jacobs interviewed on the radio (On 'Coast, Dec. 15th, 2007) and was interested immediately.
As I read, I've been running back and forth to my computer googling things mentioned in the book, to give myself some visual reference. I've had a few "Oooooh, now I understand" moments. I recommend it, for whatever my opinion is worth.
