Avoiding shellfish was easy. The stoning of adulterers proved a little more difficult - and potentially controversial.
Was it enough to walk up to an adulterer and gently touch them with a stone?
Even that could be grounds for accusations of assault, especially with female adulterers in Manhattan.
So what's a good Bible-reading boy to do? Raised in a secular family but increasingly interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J.
Jacobs decides to dive in head first and attempt to obey the hundreds of less-publicized rules.
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.
