Item description for Walking the Bible by Bruce Feiler...
Overview Both a heart-racing adventure and an uplifting quest, WALKING THE BIBLE presents one man's epic journey - by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel - through the greatest stories ever told. From crossing the Red Sea to climbing Mount Sinai to touching the burning bush, Bruce Feiler's inspiring odyssey will forever change your view of history's most legendary events. The stories in the first five books of the Bible, also known as the Torah, come alive as Feiler searches across three continents for the stories and heroes shared by Christians and Jews. You'll visit the slopes of Mount Ararat, where Noah's ark landed, trek to the desert outpost where Abraham first heard the words of God, and scale the summit where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Dramatic scripture readings interspersed throughout bring you closer to these Biblical settings. A once-in-a-lifetime journey, WALKING THE BIBLE offers new insights into the roots of our common faith and uncovers fresh answers to the most profound questions of the human spirit.

Walking the Bible review Mar 14, 2007
I saw this originally on PBS and I wanted to get the DVD for my library. This show made me stop and go back and reread many of the stories I had learned in sunday school. Instead of reading words on a page, Bruce Feiler shows you a picture of where it is believed that the events occurred. And what is shown is a lot different that what we've seen in the movies. My only complaint is that it is only 3 hours long. It could have been much longer. When you consider all of the junk that is put on TV and into movies and mini-series, this show is inspirational and very educational.
THEY EDITED THE DVD RELEASE. Feb 9, 2007
I FIRST WATCHED THIS PRODUCTION ON TELEVISION. WHY WAS IT EDITED? ONE PARTICULAR PART EDITED WAS THE DISCUSSION OF THE FIRE AND BRIMSTONE DESTROYING SODOM AND GOMORAH. INSTEAD, YOU ONLY GET A FEW SECONDS SHOWING A SALT PILLAR.
A very interesting documentary! Feb 9, 2007
What great perspective and a nice approach. Interesting for all religions and even those with no inclination towards religion at all.
Brings Biblical Places to Life Jan 19, 2007
"Bible" here means the Pentateuch, which is natural enough since the host Bruce Feiler is Jewish. This fresh look at the text in light of the probable geographic locations of where the Bible happened is thoroughly enjoyable; simultaneously entertaining and educational. Perhaps a more informative title would have been "Walking the Scriptures," since the Qur'an also revers the prophets covered in the program, and Muslims view the places associated with them as holy. But since the primary lens that Feiler views these sites though is his own experience with the Torah (Bible), the title is a fair one.
A Must See Video for Bible readers. Dec 30, 2006
This video showed amazing sites I have always wondered about. I may plan to travel to Israel and Rome someday and this video is an excellent resource. The journey by Bruce Feiler will raise many questions about the Bible writings. Bruce portrays as if he questions the bible as a scientist but is a spiritual person. He does this for the people who don't believe. I hope people who watch this video do not question God but have faith in God. Let's not reduce the Bible to history (scientific and historical evidence) because it will no longer be faith. God Bless.
