Video: Find Out What Happened After One Man Spent a Whole Year Taking the Bible Literally


MR says: Find out how living the Bible helped one agnostic man change his life and his views on faith.

Ten years ago, A.J. Jacobs tried a little experiment where he devoted an entire year to living every commandment in the Bible literally.

At the end of the year, Jacobs was surprised at what he discovered. Previously an agnostic, Jacobs suddenly found himself developing a changed attitude towards the faithful.

Jacobs detailed this experiment and the transformation it had in his life in a 2007 Ted Talk. Check it out below.
