Blogging the Bible: What Happens When an Ignoramus Reads The Good Book

This is a really neat little idea from a columnist on Slate News. He's an unobservant nominal Jew who has decided that he is going to read the Torah straight through and blog it as he goes. He's untrained and admits that he's doing this more as an experiment in what happens when an average Joe gives it a whirl than to prove any particular point. Yet, I think he does prove a point. He shows what Biblical reading looks like outside of the academy. It's spirited, and more than often funny. He's very forthright about what he reads and how it hits him. It's very private Bible-Study ish, and at times quite humerous.
