Johnny Galecki’s New Show Is About… The Bible?!
The news is out- Johnny Galecki is executive producing a show for CBS called Living Biblically. The show will surround a young man coming of age and resolving to live literally by the bible- accepting obscure rules most modern day Christians do not. It sounds fascinating, and probably pretty funny. However, is Galecki religious? What point of view will this be from? We explore.
Living Biblically will be based on a book of the same name by AJ Jacobs. Jacobs wrote on his website, “The Year of Living Biblically is about my quest to live the ultimate biblical life. To follow every single rule in the Bible as literally as possible.” The book turned into a critique of fundamentalism, a memoir, and a spiritual journey according to Jacobs. He certainly did not approach the material with disrespect for the religion. Instead, he approached the work with fresh eyes and a doubting but hopeful nature.
Will Johnny use the same approach?
Not much is known about Johnny Galecki’s religion. We know that he cares deeply about social justice. He frequently speaks out through social media about causes that concern him in today’s world. We also know that he was raised Catholic according to an interview with Stephen Colbert.
In the interview he says that being raised in the church “was wonderful,” but not much else.
Johnny Galecki’s Religion
We don’t know his exact spiritual journey, but we do know how he tends to approach life, and perhaps producing. He told the Huffington Post, “Being a good communicator. Being considerate and fair. I place a lot of importance on those things because they deserve a lot of importance and attention and energy. That’s what I value. You get to a certain point — gratefully — when you’re out of your twenties, and you realize how fleeting life is. So, it becomes important to feel as if the people in your life know exactly how you feel about them at all times.”
We predict the show will be sensitive, and comedic. There may be a few sacrilegious moments, but in all the show will have a positive outlook.
