Editorial Reviews for this title:
A.J. Jacobs se propuso obedecer todos los mandatos de La Biblia durante un año, desde los Diez Mandamientos hasta otra serie de advertencias menos conocidas (no vestiras ropa de distintas fibras, lapidaras a los adulteros, no usaras un asiento antes ocupado por una mujer menstruante…). Todo ello al pie de la letra. Se dejó crecer la barba y se vio forzado a decir siempre la verdad. El resultado no es solo divertidisimo, sino que demuestra que tambien seguir la Biblia puede cambiar tu vida espiritual. En la lista de bestsellers del New York Times y con pelicula a la vista. / 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. The resulting spiritual journey is at once funny and profound, reverent and irreverent, personal and universal and will make you see history's most influential book with new eyes. Jacobs's quest transforms his life even more radically than the year spent reading the entire Encyclopedia Britannica for The Know-It-All. His beard grows so unruly that he is regularly mistaken for a member of ZZ Top. He immerses himself in prayer, tends sheep in the Israeli desert, battles idolatry, and tells the absolute truth in all situations - much to his wife's chagrin.
