Walking the Bible

ebook

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

Both a heart-racing adventure and an uplifting quest, Walking the Bible presents one man's epic journey- by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel- through the greatest stories ever told. From crossing the Red Sea to climbing Mount Sinai to touching the burning bush, Bruce Feiler's inspiring odyssey will forever change your view of history's most legendary events.

The stories in the first five books of the Bible, also known as the Torah, come alive as Feiler searches across three continents for the stories and heroes shared by Christians and Jews. You'll visit the slopes of Mount Ararat, where Noah's ark landed, trek to the desert outpost where Abraham first heard the words of God, and scale the summit where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Using the latest archeological research, Feiler explores how physical location affects the larger narrative of the Bible and ultimately realizes how much these places, as well as his experience, have affected his faith. A once-in-a-lifetime journey, Walking the Bible offers new insights into the roots of our common faith and uncovers fresh answers to the most profound questions of the human spirit.

"Smart and savvy, insightful and illuminating." —Los Angeles Times

"An exciting, well-told story informed by Feiler's boundless intellectual curiosity . . . [and] sense of adventure." —Miami Herald
