At a time when America debates its values and the world braces for religious war, Bruce Feiler, author of the New York Times bestsellers Walking the Bible and Abraham, travels ten thousand miles through the Middle East to examine the question Is Religion Tearing Us Apart ... Or Can it Bring Us Together? Where God Was Born combines the adventure of a wartime chronicle and an archaeological detective story with an inspiring journey of spiritual exploration. Taking readers to biblical sites not seen by Westerners for decades, it uncovers little-known details about the common roots of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and affirms the importance of the Bible in today's world. Where God Was Born observes that at the birth moment of the biblical religions, all of the faiths took from one another, exchanged ideas, recognized their commonalities, and were open to peaceful coexistence. Offering a rare vision of God that can unite different faiths into a shared allegiance of hope, this is a brave, challenging, and profound work that addresses the most important issues of our time.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Feiler provokes us to reflect that if the Bible itself can sing the praises of a king who accepted the various religions of those he ruled, perhaps there is hope we can find room for more tolerance in our own time. Highly recommended.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Continuing where Walking the Bible left off, Feiler narrates his own journey throughout the Middle East, tracing the history behind the biblical stories of Joshua, Sampson, King David, Cyrus of Persia, the Maccabees, and more. His speaking style is gently clear, personal, and immediate.” AudioFile
“The third of Feiler’s books on the Bible and the Middle East, this is another absorbing blend of travelogue, history, Bible commentary, memoir, current events and passionate preaching.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Erudite yet immensely readable, [Feiler] chronicles a spiritual journey to the roots of Western civilization.” Booklist
