Walking the Bible by Bruce Feiler

Summary: The people and places of the modern Bible, captured by modern day photography.

I don’t care what religion you are. Read this book simply for the photography and you will be open-mouthed in wonder.

But if you have any interest in at all in the Old Testament, this book will be fascinating to you. Bruce Feiler takes us along with him to the places (and people) the Bible mentions and makes it vividly real, combining quotes with meaning and a historical perspective.

I discovered what is meant when the Bible says God sent manna from heaven. I won’t give it away. But it’s worth checking out this book just to know.

If you’ve read Anita Diaman’s The Red Tent, this book should also be on your To-Read shelf.
And once you’ve read Council of Dads, you should also check out this book.
