Part adventure story, part archaeological detective work, part spiritual exploration, this is the account of Bruce Feiler's perilous 10,000 mile journey across the Middle East in search of the roots of the Bible. The book: traces Biblical events from the landing of Noah's ark on Mount Ararat in Turkey to the site of the legendary burning bush overlooking the promised land; gathers the latest archaeological research about each site; follows passages of the Bible in their actual settings; and explores how geography affects the larger narrative of the Old Testament.Hide synopsis

Description:"The process of gathering these images reminded me of the Bible..."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." óBruce Feiler Its stories may be the best known.
The book was even more interesting than I expected. It is more than a journey. It was an encounter of the past with the present. That encounter offers a perspective both to the biblical history and acontinuing connection to the present.
A good view into the people of Bible lands. The author's presentation makes this an adventure from beginning to end. The journey not only covers detailed explanations of the geographical areas but also some interesting information regarding Christian beliefs.
