According to the Daily Mail, a judge gave an unusual sentence to a woman arrested for drunk-driving: She must read the Old Testament and write a book report.
The following is an excerpt taken from the article reporting this interesting story:
A young mother who pleaded guilty to drunk-driving has been given an unusual punishment; as well as eight years in jail she has been ordered to write a book report on the Bible.
The judge included in the sentence that Cassandra Tolley, 28, read the Old Testament and write him a summary on the book of Job.
The book of Job is a great book in the Bible, a book that has provided much comfort to people who are suffering. Will the book of Job also help cure alcoholism?
