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

Walking the Bible: A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of MosesWalking the Bible: A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of Moses by Bruce Feiler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


When Bruce Feiler begins his journey, he has no particular attachment to the Biblical lands. He is not even sure of what he hopes to find. With the help of an Israeli anthropologist, he visit the places mentioned in the Bible, or those that are traditionally believed to be the place where certain events took place and he finds his tie to land and his faith are growing deeper and deeper. The reader can’t help but to be carried along by his vivid descriptions and powerful narrative. I found that the explanations of what happened in these places and what life was like in Biblical extremely compelling. I felt that I had journeyed with him. It doesn’t matter what your religious background is, this book is for people of all Biblical faiths.
