Summary:

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.

    From Israel to Iraq, Iran and back again to Israel, the book is like receiving postcards from God's past. Bruce Feiler is part travel writer, part biblical historian, with a smattering of archaeology and political commentary thrown in. The section on Iran and Zoroastrianism were particularly interesting.

    Feiler does a nice job of telling his story, but if you've read his other books you may find yourself bored. Although he slices things slightly different, I didn't find it different enough from "Walking the Bible" or "Abraham" to really justify the time. However, if you're totally in love with his writing it is a quick read and is up to par with his other works.

    Bruce Feiler has done an excellent job taking the reader on a journey to learn more about God and the place where civil unrest has made it very difficult to learn about our past. BRAVO to Bruce for braving these dangers to bring us this story.
