"At a time when America debates its values and the world braces for religious war, Feiler travels ten thousand miles through the heart of the Middle East and examines the question: Is religion tearing us apart, or can it bring us together? Taking readers to sites not seen by Westerners for decades, Feiler's journey uncovers little-known details about the common roots of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and affirms the importance of the Bible in today's world. In Israel, he treks through secret underground tunnels and locates the spot where David toppled Goliath. In Iraq, he visits the Garden of Eden and the birthplace of Abraham, and makes a life-threatening trip to the rivers of Babylon. In Iran, he explores the home of the Bible's first messiah and uncovers the secret burial place of Queen Esther. Feiler's bold realization is that the Bible argues for interfaith harmony.--From publisher description.

User Review  - Ginia - Goodreads

I own the audiobook. He had many good insights that made me think. There were also perspectives I did NOT agree with, but still - in weighing what I gained against what I didn't agree with - it was still worth my time. Read full review
