A.J. Jacobs says he’s officially Jewish, but “in the same way Olive Garden is an Italian restaurant”. But after being raised in a secular New York City household, he decided to live an entire year following the word of the bible– literally. He joins Kojo to discuss the big rules (thou shalt not kill), the obscure ones (no mixed fibers), and his personal adventures with “the Good Book”.


  • A. J. Jacobs Editor-at-Large, Esquire Magazine; and author of "The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible" (Simon & Schuster)
