“The photos beautifully depict the dramatic land that gave birth to three of the world’s great religions” (USA Today)

About the Author

Bruce Feiler is the author of six consecutive New York Times bestsellers, including Abraham, Where God Was Born, America's Prophet, The Council of Dads, and The Secrets of Happy Families. He is a columnist for the New York Times, a popular lecturer, and a frequent commentator on radio and television. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and twin daughters.


More About the Author

BRUCE FEILER is one of America's most popular voices on family, faith, and survival. He writes the "This Life" column about contemporary families for the Sunday New York Times and is the author of five consecutive New York Times bestsellers, including WALKING THE BIBLE and THE COUNCIL OF DADS. He is the writer/presenter of the PBS series "Walking the Bible" and the forthcoming "Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler." His latest book, THE SECRETS OF HAPPY FAMILIES, is a bold playbook for families today. It collects best practices for modern-day parents from some of the country's most creative minds, including tops designers in Silicon Valley, elite peace negotiators, the creators of Modern Family and the Green Berets.

His most recent bestseller, THE COUNCIL OF DADS, is the international sensation that describes how faced with one of life's greatest challenges, he asked six friends to form a support group for his young daughters. The book was profiled in PEOPLE Magazine, USA Today, Time, and the Washington Post, and was the subject of a one-hour documentary on CNN hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Bruce was named "Father of the Year" by the National Fatherhood Initiative.

Since 2001, Bruce has been one of the country's preeminent thinkers, writers, and speakers about the role of religion in contemporary life. WALKING THE BIBLE describes his perilous, 10,000-mile journey retracing the Five Books of Moses through the desert. The book was hailed as an "instant classic" by the Washington Post and "thoughtful, informed, and perceptive" by The New York Times. It spent more than a year and a half on the New York Times bestseller list, has been translated into fifteen languages, and is the subject of a children's book, a photography book, and a miniseries on PBS.

ABRAHAM recounts his personal search for the shared ancestor of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. "Exquisitely written," wrote the Boston Globe, "100 percent engaging." The book was featured on the cover of TIME Magazine, debuted in the top 5 of the New York Times bestseller list, and inspired thousands of grassroots interfaith discussions around the world.

WHERE GOD WAS BORN describes his year-long trek visiting biblical sites through the front lines of Israel, Iraq, and Iran. "Bruce Feiler is a real-life Indiana Jones," wrote the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. AMERICA'S PROPHET is the groundbreaking story of the influence of Moses on American history. Both were Top 10 bestsellers.

Bruce Feiler has written for numerous publications, including The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and Gourmet, where he won three James Beard Awards. He is also a frequent contributor to NPR, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and Fox News. A former circus clown, he has been the subject of Jay Leno joke and a JEOPARDY! question, and his face appears on a postage stamp in the Grenadines.

A native of Savannah, Georgia, Bruce lives in Brooklyn with wife, Linda Rottenberg, and their identical twin daughters.

We all know the stories of Noah and his ark, Moses and The Ten Commandments and Abraham in the Promised Land. Now noted photographer Bruce Feiler takes us to the actual places where history was made. The photos --- intimate portraits, breathtaking vistas and fascinating panoramas --- are nothing less than astounding (and, in the case of the close-ups of the mummified Joseph, a bit shocking). From the heights of Mount Ararat (where Noah's ark landed) to the desert outpost in Turkey (where Abraham first heard the words of God) to the summit where Moses met His maker, Feiler puts a face on the stories that have long inspired the human spirit and kept man's faith alive. Thou shall not ignore this gem.

Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful set of photographs from the Middle East. It professes that these are the locations where many of the stories in the bible take place. This book is a companion to the TV PBS miniseries that visits the locations where the familiar stories take place.

For instance Noah's ark might have landed (as with a lot of the bible there is discussion as to where it really happened) on Mt Ararat, and here are pictures of the mountain from several aspects. Other stories are treated in a similar manner.

Most of the stories told here and illustrated with photographs from where they (might have) taken place. If I sound skeptical, it's because 5,000 years is a long time, even in the Middle East. The locations are mostly from the Old Testament, where Abraham first heard the words of God and he sleeps on the summit where Moses overlooked the Promised Land.

The pictures show a wealth of detail of an area at the same time familiar and strange.

I was excited about this book, and enjoyed the storytelling and images. However, I was expecting higher resolution photography. The type that really take you in and make you want to study them for a long time. The images in this book, while beautiful, have a grainy feel to them. I'm quite surprised that the authors were filming a series and didn't take a professional photographer with them.

The fact that a few of the facts are not quite right doesn't detract from the power of this photographic journey. Thousands of years after the events of the Bible nobody really knows the exact locations of some of the most famouse sites mentioned. But it's certain that the real places in the Bible must have been very much like those experienced by the early Jews and Christians. It's exciting to see these places and imagine what it might have been like.

Intellectually written with attention to spiritual doctrines. Page turning photos kept the reader at once connected to the readings.

Format: Hardcover
WALKING THE BIBLE: A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY could also have been featured in our Spirituality section: it's reviewed here for its striking photo impact so that artists don't miss the value of its presentation. It's a companion volume to the new PBS series on its way: in 2004 Feiler reprised the 10,000 mile walk through the Middle East deserts which led to his WALKING THE BIBLE. This photographic odyssey blends stunning photos - many taken by Feiler - with a survey of Biblical places and landscapes. A striking visual panorama, not to be missed.

I purchased this book last year as a Christmas gift for my grandmother. The photos are lovely and the accompanying text proved just right for a non-reader - interesting captions and short readable paragraphs, nothing lengthy. She was very happy with it and later said it was "beautiful and interesting to read and look through". Several of us enjoyed looking through it on Christmas day, and we were all impressed with it overall.

We bought this book for my father-in-law. My husband was skeptical because he wasn't sure he would have the time to read a book. My 8-year-old daughter looked through the whole book before we wrapped it, exclaming on just about every page, "Oh, this is so beautiful!" and then said, "This will be okay for Grandad, it's mostly pictures." He did seem to like it on Christmas Day
