Bruce Feiler

Hailed as one of the leading writers of his generation, Bruce Feiler is the author of six books including Walking the Bible: A Journey By Land Through the Five Books of Moses in which the author recounts his travels through the Middle East, connecting biblical stories to their actual sites. Celebrated by the Washington Post as an instant classic, Walking the Bible spent over a year on The New York Times bestsellers list and has been translated into 15 languages.

In January of 2006, PBS aired Walking the Bible With Bruce Feiler, a landmark three-part TV mini-series written, produced, and hosted by Feiler. Part adventure story, part archaeological detective work, part spiritual exploration, The Wall Street Journal called it three splendid hours of television. In his most recent book, Abraham: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths, Feiler retraces the footsteps of the common ancestor of Jews, Christians and Muslims. The book was praised as a revolution in thought by TIME magazine, and was named one the best books of the year by, Barnes & Noble, The Christian Science Monitor and Publishers Weekly.

Feiler has visited more than 60 countries and has recorded his experiences in such books as Where God Was Born: A Journey By Land to the Roots of Religion; Looking for Class: Days and Nights at Oxford and Cambridge; Learning to Bow: Inside the Heart of Japan; Under the Big Top: A Season With the Circus; and Dreaming Out Loud: Garth Brooks, Wynonna Judd, Wade Hayes, And The Changing Face Of Nashville. A graduate of Yale, Feiler holds a master's degree in international relations from Cambridge.
