The Year of Living Biblically

Friday, October 26, 2007

I found a great article on Christianity Today's website. It's about an agnostic Jew who decided to read through the entire Bible and follow it word for word. Here is an excerpt:

Of course, some of the Bible's laws prove too strange even for Jacobs. The notion that one should break the neck of a cow near the scene of an unsolved murder (Deut. 21:4) is a bit too bizarre to be transforming the NYPD anytime soon. And, as Jacobs notes, some recommendations (e.g., "kill magicians") are downright illegal.

You can find the rest of the article here. You'll enjoy it!

Gotta love it when we put God and the Bible into a nice little carrying case...

and realize nothing can quite contain such Divinity.
