    Join best-selling author A. J. Jacobs as he discusses his recent book, The Year of Living Biblically, in which he recounts his fascinating, enlightening and delightfully strange year trying to follow all 613 commandments in the Bible. This lecture is an eye-opening lesson in the wisdom of rabbis, religion in America today, Bible history, and the dangers of literal interpretation. Thou shalt not miss it!

    Story
    Would you listen to A. J. Jacobs again? Why?

    AA Jacobs is a truly funny man, but more importantly, he is a funny man who can make other people laugh. The two don't necessarily always go together!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A. J. Jacobs?

    Difficult to choose, but raiding a poor unsuspecting pigeon's nest in order to cuddle its egg, was certainly right up there!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Not much to dislike, so will ignore that question if it is quite ok... grin. What I liked is that the author doesn't take himself seriously at all; this just makes his stories even funnier.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. Unfortunately life is not that kind, but I pretty much did it in less than a week.


    Any additional comments?

    Apart from being really funny, the author obviously found himself exploring serious themes in his own life. HIs power as author, is that he took me along on the journey for which I was grateful. Excellent read - or should I say listen!

    Professor Peters' studies of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam allow him to offer a series of lectures beginning with Creation and ending with the Final Judgment. In this course, Professor Peters leads listeners through a comprehensive study of each of these fundamentally monotheistic religious communities. As he concludes, only by understanding their similarities and differences can we hope to make sense of the politics of religion which continue to fuel conflicts throughout the world.

It spans the millennia and the continents - from India to Andalusia and from the bazaars of Cairo to the streets of Oxford. It takes you to unimagined places: to a Jewish kingdom in the mountains of southern Arabia; a Syrian synagogue glowing with radiant wall paintings; the palm groves of the Jewish dead in the Roman catacombs.

Casting its eye over the transient nature of life, the book questions the story for wisdom and the truth, choosing instead to espouse the value of living for the moment. The introduction is preceded by a reading from the book by Richard Holloway, former Bishop of Edinburgh.
