Publisher's Summary

One part adventure story, one part archaeological detective work, one part spiritual exploration, Walking the Bible vividly recounts an inspiring personal odyssey (by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel) through the greatest stories ever told.Feeling a desire to reconnect to the Bible, award-winning author Bruce Feiler set out on a perilous, 10,000-mile journey retracing the Five Books of Moses through the desert. Traveling over three continents, through five countries, and four war zones, Feiler is the first person to complete such a historic expedition. He crosses the Red Sea, climbs Mt. Sinai, and interviews Bedouin and pilgrims alike, as he attempts to answer the question: Is the Bible just an abstraction, or is it a living, breathing entity?Both a pulse-pounding adventure and an uplifting spiritual quest, Bruce Feiler's Walking the Bible is a stunning and elevating work of courage, scholarship, and heart that revisits the inscrutable desert landscape where the world's great religions were born and uncovers fresh answers to the most profound questions of the human spirit.

"An instant classic...A pure joy to read." (Washington Post Book World)

"[Feiler] is an excellent guide...He has...invested [this book] with a keen intellectual curiosity." (The New York Times)

Pastor's Perspective

This book was outstanding. As a pastor and one who preaches from the OT, this book brought the OT alive, and gave me a great deal of insight into the narratives of OT stories. Thanks.

Good Book, Terrible Reader

This is why authors shouldn't read their own books. Bruce write a great book, but the way he reads it is very annoying. He emphasises at the wrong times and his tones are just plain annoying at times. Overall though, the book was very interesting.
