Movie Reviews

Walking the Bible
M. Ausborn | California | 04/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Watching this DVD allowed me to have a greater insite into the bible. I was interested from the beginning to the end of this series and actually wished there was more. Bruce Feiler's presentation of people, places, and events during these periods in the bible gave me good understanding and clarity, it took me on a journey that was very meaningful on several different levels. I would recommend this DVD to those who are not only interest in the religious journey but those who are interested in archeology, geology, ancient architecture, ancient cultures, modern people, a Greek Orthodox chuch, etc. No disappointments here.................. Frankly, I am waiting for the next journey to begin."

"I love the approach taken on this. It is not so much an attempt to either prove or disprove the events of the bible, but an attempt to put a "face" (as it were) to some of the locations in the Bible. I don't so much see this as the work done by a skeptic, but by someone who truly wants to understand the whys and hows of the events. If that means ice-caps melted to create the flood, does it necessarily follow that he is skeptical of God? I mean, SOMEONE had to cause the ice-caps to melt, didn't they? As I see it, here is someone who maybe fell out of love with their religion and is trying to understand and renew their faith. At the very least, this is a visually stunning look at the areas of the Middle East that are where the bible was originally written. It is a very fascinating watch."

"This is truly an inspiring journey that anyone can share with the Author Bruce Feiler.

I believe that it will renew your interest in not only reading the Bible it will also encourage you to embark on your own personal journey of visiting the Holy Places of Christendom.

I highly recommend that every Christian add this DVD to their library.

A profound journey

"This three-part series, based on Bruce Feiler's book of the same name, takes the viewer on a fascinating and profound journey (literally) through the first five books of the Bible. While Mr. Feiler isn't some fundamentalist, he's not some die-hard skeptic either. He went on this journey through Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey to better understand the Bible, to get a deeper sense of spirituality, and to reconnect with his faith, not to try to disprove everything in the Bible at every turn or to try to find scientific explanations for everything. His enthusiasm for the subject was very infectious, and it was so obvious that as the journey progressed, his sense of wonder and connection to the Divine, history, and the land were increasing. Among the places he visits are the Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Petra, Jordan, where some believe the Israelites to have encamped for 38 of the years of their journey in the wilderness; a place in Turkey where the Garden of Eden is believed to have been; and a 1,500 year old monastery in Egypt, which he estimates has held about 3 million services since its creation and which has a wondrous library. In addition to really making the people, places, and history of the Bible come to life instead of just being words on a page and far-off events in far-off places, it's also inspiring how cordially he got along with people of different faiths along the way. He lodged, worshipped, ate and drank, and talked with Muslims, Jews, and Christians, really achieving the goal of his archaeologist companion Avner Goren, building bridges of peace and understanding instead of avoiding different people and never finding any common ground. Mr. Feiler also ultimately concludes that trying too hard to find a scientific explanation for or historical proof of everything can take away a lot of what the Bible is really all about, a sense of wonder, faith, and spirituality. My only complaint is that it wasn't longer! Maybe we'll see a follow-up one day, in which he geographically explores the rest of the Bible."
