6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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?

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-publicised 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
