Where God Was Born : A Daring Adventure Through the Bible's Greatest Stories
by Bruce Feiler




Overview -

In Where God Was Born, Bruce Feiler once again takes up his unique physical and spiritual exploration of the Holy Land. Feiler travels throughout the most dangerous and war-torn areas of the Middle East, taking readers to biblical sites not seen by Westerners for decades and uncovering little-known details about the common roots of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

In his most daring adventure yet, Feiler brings readers along as he retraces the Bible through the bloodiest places on the planet, from the Garden of Eden in war-torn Iraq to the rivers of Babylon just south of Baghdad, from David's conquest of Jerusalem to Queen Esther's face-off with the King of Persia. At each site, Feiler discusses the Bible with local characters, from archaeologists to army chaplains, and draws lessons for fostering reconciliation in our time.

Where God Was Born is a powerful, inspiring story. It offers a rare, universal vision of God that can unite members of different faiths into a shared allegiance of hope.

Bruce Feiler is the bestselling author of Where God Was Born, Walking the Bible and Abraham, as well as four previous books of nonfiction. Feiler is a frequent contributor to NPR's "All Things Considered," a contributing editor for Gourmet, and has written for The New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, the Washington Post, USA Today, Esquire, and Conde Nast Traveler.
