Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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. 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.

Bruce Feiler is the New York Times bestselling author of seven books, including Walking the Bible: A Photographic Journey. He is also a frequent contributor to NPR and is a contributing editor at Gourmet and Parade.

Amazon.com

Bruce Feiler has written books about a variety of subjects, from teaching English in Japan (Learning to Bow) to joining the circus (Under the Big Top), but with Walking the Bible, he mostly eschews the whimsy and humor of his previous work in favor of something considerably more profound: an epic search across the Middle East for the locations of the stories found in the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament. Feiler's trek yields some fascinating revelations (so to speak): The Garden of Eden, in Mesopotamia, was mostly water. In order to accommodate the 18,000 or so animals it took on board, Noah's Ark would have been half the size of the Titanic, with an entire deck just for the 600 tons of manure the creatures deposited. The body of water that Moses parted might not have been the Red Sea, but rather a shallow, reedy lake. And the burning bush, which monks at Saint Catherine's Monastery in Sinai say still lives within the walls of their sanctuary, has blossoms like roses and fruits like raspberries. Yet while the prospect of visiting the actual places where Biblical events took place is an intriguing one, the results are often inconclusive at best. When Feiler climbs Mt. Ararat, long thought to be the final resting place of the Ark, a local known as "the mayor of the mountain" boasts that he knows where the remnants are but refuses to show them to the visitor. Other locations remain elusive, rooted as much in myth as in fact; there are 22 possible candidates for Mt. Sinai, where Moses was said to have received the Ten Commandments from God. Feiler is no fundamentalist, and he wrestles with the imbalance between science and belief. But in the end, matters of physical evidence and proof become relatively unimportant. "The Bible transcends science," he says; it is the "larger meaning" that matters. Clearly, his sojourn had a profound impact on his faith. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking the Bible April 3, 2006
Watching this DVD allowed me to have a greater insite into the bible. I was interested from the beginning to the end of this series and actually wished there was more. Bruce Feiler's presentation of people, places, and events during these periods in the bible gave me good understanding and clarity, it took me on a journey that was very meaningful on several different levels. I would recommend this DVD to those who are not only interest in the religious journey but those who are interested in archeology, geology, ancient architecture, ancient cultures, modern people, a Greek Orthodox chuch, etc. No disappointments here.................. Frankly, I am waiting for the next journey to begin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating! September 23, 2006
Verified Purchase
I love the approach taken on this. It is not so much an attempt to either prove or disprove the events of the bible, but an attempt to put a "face" (as it were) to some of the locations in the Bible. I don't so much see this as the work done by a skeptic, but by someone who truly wants to understand the whys and hows of the events. If that means ice-caps melted to create the flood, does it necessarily follow that he is skeptical of God? I mean, SOMEONE had to cause the ice-caps to melt, didn't they? As I see it, here is someone who maybe fell out of love with their religion and is trying to understand and renew their faith. At the very least, this is a visually stunning look at the areas of the Middle East that are where the bible was originally written. It is a very fascinating watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars My journey with Walking The Bible March 6, 2006
This is truly an inspiring journey that anyone can share with the Author Bruce Feiler.

I believe that it will renew your interest in not only reading the Bible it will also encourage you to embark on your own personal journey of visiting the Holy Places of Christendom.

I highly recommend that every Christian add this DVD to their library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A profound journey April 12, 2007
This three-part series, based on Bruce Feiler's book of the same name, takes the viewer on a fascinating and profound journey (literally) through the first five books of the Bible. While Mr. Feiler isn't some fundamentalist, he's not some die-hard skeptic either. He went on this journey through Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey to better understand the Bible, to get a deeper sense of spirituality, and to reconnect with his faith, not to try to disprove everything in the Bible at every turn or to try to find scientific explanations for everything. His enthusiasm for the subject was very infectious, and it was so obvious that as the journey progressed, his sense of wonder and connection to the Divine, history, and the land were increasing. Among the places he visits are the Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Petra, Jordan, where some believe the Israelites to have encamped for 38 of the years of their journey in the wilderness; a place in Turkey where the Garden of Eden is believed to have been; and a 1,500 year old monastery in Egypt, which he estimates has held about 3 million services since its creation and which has a wondrous library. In addition to really making the people, places, and history of the Bible come to life instead of just being words on a page and far-off events in far-off places, it's also inspiring how cordially he got along with people of different faiths along the way. He lodged, worshipped, ate and drank, and talked with Muslims, Jews, and Christians, really achieving the goal of his archaeologist companion Avner Goren, building bridges of peace and understanding instead of avoiding different people and never finding any common ground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking The Bible August 1, 2006
This is a fascinating look at the journey through the first 5 books of the bible. It's a visual foundation for stories that all three major religions, the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims, hold sacred to their faith and their traditions. As a documentary, the journey takes place "today" in the midst of the modern-day struggles and misunderstandings that make it realistic and thought-provoking for our faith today.

If you want to understand the bible, this is an amazing way to see the stories that most people of the world hold as sacred to their beliefs and faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking along on a conversion experience November 22, 2006
This program is part re-telling of small portions of the Bible and part conversion experience. We are taken along on what starts as a historical/archeological sort of journey which turns into the author/narrator/host's conversion . . a revelation that the Bible is real. This is not a travelogue, but a diary of a trek along ancient routes. Bruce Feiler is not preaching, but sharing his discovery. Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking the Bible review March 14, 2007
I saw this originally on PBS and I wanted to get the DVD for my library. This show made me stop and go back and reread many of the stories I had learned in sunday school. Instead of reading words on a page, Bruce Feiler shows you a picture of where it is believed that the events occurred. And what is shown is a lot different that what we've seen in the movies. My only complaint is that it is only 3 hours long. It could have been much longer. When you consider all of the junk that is put on TV and into movies and mini-series, this show is inspirational and very educational.
