On a visit to Jerusalem, Bruce Feiler has a revelation: the stories of the Bible occurred in real places, places he could visit today. So he sets out on a perilous 10,000 mile journey retracing the greatest stories ever told.

From the base of Mount Ararat, where he meets a mysterious man who claims to have found Noah's ark, to the edge of the Dead Sea, where he climbs salt pillars in the lost cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, Feiler discovers that the Bible still lives in the landscape. He visits the desert outpost where Abraham first heard the words of God and has an unexpected encounter alongside the legendary burning bush. And finally he climbs Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments.

In each place, Feiler eloquently explores how geography affects the Bible and how his journey has influenced his faith. Walking the Bible is both a heart-pounding adventure and an uplifting personal quest that will forever change your view of some of history's most memorable events. Download and start listening now!

    " The author clearly is a fantastic writer, and I enjoyed the travel narrative aspects of the book very much. He tromps around some fascinating parts of the Middle East, including Petra in Jordan, a tiny monastery in the Sinai, and various sites in Israel. But that wasn't enough to retain my interest, because--and I should have known this would be a problem--I don't care about the Bible. I have no personal stake in whether Abraham existed, let alone whether he could have been at a particular place in a particular time. So I could imagine many people loving this book--and they do--but it wasn't for me. "

    " I'm 200 pages in and giving up. I never do that, but I don't really like his writing style, and I don't think he's particularly informative. Granted, I probably have more of a biblical background than others, but he keeps on missing chances to correct misconceptions (Noah's arc was shaped like a box, not a boat), and I don't think he hits the right balance between talking about his own spiritual journey and the content (I thought it was way too memoir-ish) "

    " Travelogue, history, archaeology, spirituality. Read slowly to savor. "

    " This book is absolutely fascinating so far. I am two chapters in and already, I am hooked. The author of this book, Bruce Feiler, along with a Israeli expert anthropoligist named Avner, travel through the modern day Middle East (namely Iraq, Iran, Syria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Palestine, viewing it through a biblical perspective. By traveling to places where tradition and history say biblical events actually once occured, the author makes remarkable connections between the oral tradition of the bible and the political realities of today.
