Jacobs decides to live his modern Manhattan life as close to they did back in Biblical times. He spent about 8 months studying and following the Old Testament and the remainder of the year studying the New Testament. From this line:
"I am officially Jewish, but I’m Jewish in the same way the Olive Garden is an Italian restaurant."Probably my favorite line in the whole book. I enjoyed reading about Jacobs' adventures and they were adventures. While Jacobs' was writing this book, his wife was pregnant for the second time. It made for a lot of funny situations. Jacobs also met with the Amish, rabbis, ministers, and other religious folks. I enjoyed how he explained the different rules and how different religions interpret them. While there are certain religion and religious practices that Jacobs didn't get, he didn't judge. I actually found his journey inspiring. He didn't necessarily set out to become more religious but he kind of became more religious.
Recommended especially to those on their own spiritual journey. Others who shared their thoughts on The Year Of Living Biblically: Adventures In Flip Flops, Em and Emm Expound on Exposition, and Book Nut.
