On a visit to Jerusalem, Feiler
has a revelation: The stories of the
Bible occurred in real places -- places
he could visit today. So he sets out
on a perilous ten-thousand-mile journey
retracing the greatest stories ever
From the base of Mount Ararat, where
he meets a mysterious man who claims
to have found Noah's ark, to the edge
of the Dead Sea, where he climbs salt
pillars in the lost cities of Sodom
and Gomorrah, Feiler discovers that
the Bible still lives in the landscape.
He visits the desert outpost where Abraham
first heard the words of God, and has
an unexpected encounter alongside the
legendary burning bush. And finally
he climbs Mount Sinai, where Moses received
the Ten Commandments.
In each place, Feiler eloquently explores
how geography affects the Bible and
how his journey has influenced his faith.
Illustrated with graceful maps and Feiler's
own photographs, walking the bible is
both a heart-pounding adventure and
an uplifting personal quest that will
forever change your view of some of
history's most memorable events.
