Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A beautifully illustrated edition of the New York Timesbestseller, timed as a companion to the Fall 2005 PBS series based on Walking the Bible.

In 2004, Bruce Feiler reprised the journey through the Holy Land that led to his breakthrough bestseller Walking the Bible--this time he took along a documentary film crew. The result will be a heavily marketed PBS series in Fall 2005 and a lush illustrated book, Walking The Bible: A Photographic Journey.

One part adventure story, one part archaeological detective work, one part spiritual exploration, Walking The Bible: A Photographic Journey is a fascinating, unprecedented journey--by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel--through the most famous stories ever told. The combination of beautiful photography and Feiler's evocative prose will irresistibly draw readers into the Holy Land. In these pages the biblical landscape comes alive as Feiler treks though Turkey, Israel, the Palestinian territories, Egypt, the Sinai, and Jordan visiting the actual places where some of history's most famous events took place, from the mountain where Noah's ark landed to the site of the legendary burning bush. He visits the desert outpost in Turkey where Abraham first heard the words of God and sleeps on the summit where Moses overlooked the Promised Land. For each place, he selects the finest photographs. With the vivid visual imagery of the photos and his famously lively prose, Feiler has produced an unprecedented exploration of therelationship between this ancient geography and the larger narrative of the Bible and ultimately realizes how much these places have affected our faith.

Synopsis:

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.
