I wish I could remember the title and/or author about a Jewish man who decided to live as a Christian for one year. He attended “liberal” churches and “conservative” churches, went to tent revivals, read the NT exclusively, talked to dozens of Christians all along the spectrum, went to a church sponsored baseball game and sat with several different groups of Christians. What he found at the end of the year was his year of living as a Christian made him a better Jew.
I did enjoy A.J. Jacobs book The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible. Basically, he found it impossibly to live the life literally especially in this modern world. It too made him a better Jew.
