LOS ANGELES -- The places and stories of the Bible are coming to television screens across America during the first three weeks of January thanks to

nationally-broadcast primetime project is adapted from Bruce Feiler's New York Times best-selling book of the same title and will be hosted by the
The series, filmed in five countries -- and four war zones -- is part adventure story, part spiritual journey. Crafted from 200 hours of
high-definition digital video footage, "Walking the Bible" takes viewers from the heights of Mount Ararat, where Noah's Ark was reported to have
come to rest, to the depths of the Salt Sea, the lowest point on earth.
Viewers will journey along with Feiler as he travels -- by boat, Jeep, camel and foot -- the paths of Moses, Isaac, Jacob and the Israelites.
