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.
