Project Conversion

Two years ago, I published a post on the best-selling book The Year of Living Biblically. It was a fascinating read of one man’s attempt to live out every commandment in the Bible over the course of an entire year.  Recently, I was introduced my new buddy Andrew.  I’ve actually yet to meet Andrew in person.  We’ve had some great conversations via Facebook, and I hope to meet him near the end of May at the NC Homeschooling Convention.

So what does my buddy Andrew have to do with a best-selling book about trying to follow the Bible’s commands for an entire year?

Andrew has started his own year-long quest:  Project Conversion.

Over the course of 2011, Andrew will convert to eleven different religions, one a month (except for June, when he’ll take a break and document what he’s learned about some fringe religions).  I’m looking forward to see what Andrew learns over the next year.  He’s kicked off his experiment with Hinduism.  So if you meet him between now and Feb. 1, make sure to say “Namaste.”  And don’t assume he’s part of the DHARMA Initiative.

Tomorrow I will post an “email interview” I did with Andrew, just to shed some light on why he’s embarking on such a spiritual adventure.

About Aaron

Aaron is a follower of Jesus. He's married to his smokin' hot wife Laura and is the father of three adorable girls. He enjoys a robust cigar, a complex root beer, a good movie, writing, football, thought-provoking books, and rousing discussions about subjects you're not supposed to talk about (like theology and politics). Religious people irritate him (because he once was one). He's on a quest to find the perfect dry rub and sauce for ribs.

    Too kind. Thanks pal, and indeed Namaste.

      You bet. Stay away from the source, and don’t turn the donkey wheel so that the island doesn’t disappear, and we’ll be fine.
