"The process of gathering these images reminded me of the Bible's effortless ability to reinvent itself for each generation and each new way of searching."
?Bruce Feiler

Its stories may be the best known in the world, but its locations have long been a mystery. Where did Noah's ark land? Where did Moses receive the Ten Commandments? Where are the lost cities of Sodom and Gomorrah? Now, in Walking the Bible: A Photographic Journey, New York Times bestselling author Bruce Feiler offers an unprecedented heart-stirring adventure through the landscape of some of history's most storied events.

Featuring Bruce Feiler's own photography as well as his selections from professional collections, Walking the Bible: A Photographic Journey brings together breathtaking vistas, intimate portraits, and fascinating panoramas, providing firsthand access to the inscrutable land where three of the world's great religions were born?and finally puts a face on the stories that have long inspired the human spirit.

Over several years, Feiler traveled nearly ten thousand miles through the deserts of the Middle East, which led first to his runaway national bestseller Walking the Bible. This new illustrated book follows his route, offering a thrilling photographic voyage through the actual places of some of the Bible's most memorable events?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 overlooked the Promised Land.

Walking the Bible: A Photographic Journey chronicles a landscape that nurtured the relationship between humans and the divine, breathing new meaning into stories that have been a timeless source of inspiration.

Customer Reviews of Walking The Bible: A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of Moses

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Modern Bible Journey Take a journey through the lands of the Bible with a great cast of real-life personalities following the footsteps of the Prophets. Book modeled after the Bill Bryson style of adventure, travelogue, history, religion and a good dose of humour. Big theme is the purifying big sky of the desert which allow us to understand G*d a bit better. Good stuff.
