Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Originally airing on PBS stations in January 2006, Walking the Bible follows author Bruce Feiler on his quest to explore the stories of the Bible in a trek across the Middle East. Joined by archaeologist and fellow adventurer Avner Goren, Feiler begins his spiritual -- and physical -- journey by foot, boat, and train in Episode 1, "Go Forth: from Creation to Abraham." Feiler and Goren explore the area between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Turkey, delving into the biblical story of Creation. From there they venture to Mt. Ararat in search of Noah's Ark, visit the Dead Sea, and then end up in Jerusalem. Episode 2, "A Coat of Many Colors: The Israelites in Egypt," retraces Joseph's path to Egypt after being sold into bondage by his brothers, and then concludes at the Red Sea, where Moses parted the waters for fleeing Israelites. Episode 3, "Toward the Promised Land: Forty Years in the Desert," ends Feiler's and Goren's journey with a walk through the foreboding Sinai Desert, a climb up Mt. Sinai (the scene of Moses' acceptance of the Ten Commandments), and finally to the top of Mt. Nebo, where God showed Moses the Promised Land for his people. Interspersed throughout each episode are dramatic Scripture readings, which put each location's visit into context.

    A wonderful journey

    I was surprised this is a bit different than the book. Both are excellent.
    Mr. Feiler has a moving way of sharing his discovery with us.
