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.
