Walking the Bible
A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of MosesBook - 2001
New York Times Bestseller
To tie into the six-part series Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler airing Summer, 2014, a reissue of the classic New York Times bestseller: one part adventure story, one part archaeological detective work, one part spiritual exploration, Walking the Bible is a fascinating, unprecedented journey--by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel--through the most famous stories ever told.
The first person ever to complete the perilous 10,000 mile journey across the inscrutable desert landscape of the Middle East, Bruce Feiler, a fifth generation Southern Jew, embarks upon a quest to reconnect with the stories of the Bible, and uncover fresh answers to profound questions. This inspiring personal odyssey through the most famous stories ever told, is at once a gripping adventure and burning spiritual quest. Accompanied by prominent Israeli archeologist Avner Goren, Feiler travels from Mount Ararat to Mount Nebo, witnessing actual Biblical sites--from the mountain where Noah's Arc landed to the location of the burning bush--and gathers the latest archaeological research to draw some astounding conclusions about these places and his own faith, heritage and humanity's enduring sense of wonder.
