Living the Bible Literally

A.J. Jacobs growing beard living biblical year photographic exploration

Writer A.J. Jacobs wasn't sure what to expect when he set off to spend a year living the Bible as literally as possible. As he details in his best-selling book, "The Year of Living Biblically," he soon found himself traipsing through the New York City subway system in white robes and sandals, being a shepherd in Israel, avoiding lustful gazing, exploring creationism at the Creation Museum in Cincinnati, and, as pictured above, growing a beard of biblical proportions.

Get a glimpse of Jacobs's biblical year--and learn something about the Bible's most arcane rules--in this photographic exploration of what it means to live the Bible literally in the modern era. Then join Jacobs in a lively discussion about his book and the Bible.
