Summary
"Do the Kardashians really believe in God? An E! News star mixes memoir and investigative journalism in his own rollicking, poignant, and masterful version of A.J. Jacobs' A Year of Living Biblically, chronicling his own spiritual journey as he investigates the religious lives of the rich and famous in Hollywood. Ken Baker, the popular L.A.-based senior correspondent for E! News and E! Online, has worked in Hollywood for over twenty years--hobnobbing with multimillionaires and interviewing movie, music and TV stars such as George Clooney, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian. In that time, Baker saw himself becoming one of the materialistic, carnal people he never wanted to be, abandoning his Christian heritage and losing his spiritual center in the process. Finding himself alone and confused one day in Vegas, he had an awakening that put him on a journey to find God, not only in himself, but in the celebrities whose lives intersect with his, both professionally and personally. In The Ken Commandments, Ken sets off on an experiment that will bring him closer to understanding the spiritual lives of such diverse luminaries as Gwen Stefani, Tom Cruise, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Joel Osteen, and Deepak Chopra, and in the process help to reveal the light and dark of Hollywood's soul. From New Age spirituality to Bible-based Christianity, to Scientology, to Buddhist retreats, to meditation classes, to Atheism studies, to the mega-church of the nation's top TV preacher, Baker immerses himself in a range of spiritual practices side by side with the celebrity set, revealing a world that is deeper, more questioning and more God-centered than you'd ever imagine."--Jacket flap
