Skeptical Readers - Bookclub

Let's read a book and have a discussion!

This month's book is The Year of Living Biblically by A. J. Jacobs. This book is available on Amazon.

From the bestselling author of The Know-It-All comes a fascinating and timely exploration of religion and the Bible.

Raised in a secular family but increasingly interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J. Jacobs decides to dive in headfirst and attempt to obey the Bible as literally as possible for one full year. He vows to follow the Ten Commandments. To be fruitful and multiply. To love his neighbor. But also to obey the hundreds of less publicized rules: to avoid wearing clothes made of mixed fibers; to play a ten-string harp; to stone adulterers.

    Sorry for the late cancel. I was lame and didn't get the book in time.

    My daughter's dad says he is willing to be her chauffeur so I can come to the bookclub. I just bought the book today and started reading it and I think it will be a very enjoyable read!

    I just found out I will be transporting my daughter to a 6:00-9:00pm event that evening. Sorry I won't be able to come.
