Walking the Bible
One part adventure story, one part archaeological detective work, one part spiritual exploration, Walking the Bible describes Bruce Feiler's
10,000-mile odyssey — by foot, Jeep, rowboat and camel — through the greatest stories ever told. Hailed as an instant classic by the Washington
Post, Feiler's book, Walking the Bible has spent over a year on the New York Times bestseller list.
Now Bruce brings the same sense of adventure, academic rigor and wide-eyed enthusiasm that have endeared readers around the world, to a dramatic new
television series. At a time when the world is searching for insight and information, he returns to the Middle East to walk the perilous roads of the
great biblical heroes, Noah, Abraham and Moses. He returns to the forbidding and hostile environment of the Mesopotamian highlands, the Nile Delta and
the Sinai Desert to experience the travails of the patriarchs and the dangers of Exodus for himself and for us.
He returns to the Bible to educate, illuminate and inspire.
What makes Bruce's approach so special? His ability to translate complex academic disputes and centuries-old tangles of faith into clear, everyday
language. Whether it's crossing the Red Sea, climbing Mt. Sinai or interviewing Bedouins, pilgrims and scholars, he forever changes the way we see
the most famous stories ever told. Now he does the same for a television audience.
