In 'Where God Was Born', Bruce Feiler continues his physical and spiritual journey to retrace the great stories of the Bible and to understand what they can mean in our lives today. The book is very much a personal quest through the unseen sites of the Bible, beginning in Genesis, continuing through the Prophets, and ending just before the birth of Jesus. Along the way, we encounter some of the greatest stories ever told.
For most of the last 25 years, biblical sites in much of the Middle East, notably Iraq and Iran, have been almost entirely closed to the West. 'Where God Was Born' unveils these holy sites to most readers for the first time.
