“An instant classic. . . . A pure joy to read.” —Washington Post Book World Both a heart-racing adventure and an uplifting quest, Walking the Bible presents one man’s epic journey- by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel- through the greatest stories ever told. From crossing the Red Sea to climbing Mount Sinai to touching the burning bush, Bruce Feiler’s inspiring odyssey will forever change your view of history’s most legendary events. The stories in the first five books of the Bible, also known as the Torah, come alive as Feiler searches across three continents for the stories and heroes shared by Christians and Jews. You’ll visit the slopes of Mount Ararat, where Noah’s ark landed, trek to the desert outpost where Abraham first heard the words of God, and scale the summit where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Using the latest archeological research, Feiler explores how physical location affects the larger narrative of the Bible and ultimately realizes how much these places, as well as his experience, have affected his faith. A once-in-a-lifetime journey, Walking the Bible offers new insights into the roots of our common faith and uncovers fresh answers to the most profound questions of the human spirit. “Smart and savvy, insightful and illuminating.” —Los Angeles Times “An exciting, well-told story informed by Feiler’s boundless intellectual curiosity . . . [and] sense of adventure.” —Miami Herald

There's a sacred and hidden path inside each one of us, a path of mysteries and amazing manifestations, where nothing is impossible, not even our wildest spiritual creations. This is the realm of impossibilities, where imagination is carried away by a spiritual insight, which is here referred as the phoenix. The allegory inside this book takes us to a subconscious realm, that can lead us to the most uplifting and unknown side of ourselves, but also to other realities as well, namely, the ones that are parallel to ours, and also other dimensions and galaxies. It is with this allegory of the phoenix that we understand the role of the dragons and serpents of our planet, and how they interfere in the Tao of our existence. As a dance of forces, vibrations of different natures, these symbols and concepts take us to the deepest truth within, of who we are and how far can we go. This is a book about the adventures of our soul, the journey within that so many Shamans live to explore. It's also about a path that all spiritualists and gurus have experienced, a path that some have called nirvana, enlightenment or awaking, but few have ever had the ability to fully describe in a way that can be perceived by the common mortal. The Native Americans have often told us about the spirit of the eagle that keeps guard over the spiritual world. This eagle, or big bird, is representative of another living force, which is the phoenix, the bird of fire. This is why many mystics of ancient times believed that only fire could take souls to another world. The fire purifies the body, but the most potent fire comes from within, as an energy that we burn with our conscious awareness. This is the fire that Buddhists, Taoists and Hindus persist in awakening from within, commonly using disciplines created specifically for this purpose, such as yoga, chikung and meditation. This fire represents the power of our own spirituality, which most people are unaware to possess. As mortals and genetically manipulated slaves of a few alien species, we've lost the physical capability to ignite it. But the phoenix can help us reach it, through the spiritual nature that is within each one of us. The one who can ride the phoenix, can travel very far, to amazing lands. And these are the ones that often come back, when they choose to, as our prophets and religious leaders. This book describes their journey to Valhalla, Heaven, Paradise, or more simply, the Laboratory of God.

This past year has been troubling for many of us who have had to deal with the ravages of the COVD-19 pandemic. We have had to deal with a loss of freedom, and some of us have lost jobs and income. And most tragically, there was the loss of family and friends who were fatal victims of this virus. The result of which is that we have been forced to make many difficult transitions in our lives. Life, as we have known it, has changed. But did you know that there is great power in transitions? These transitions are here to announce that we must set aside some old ways of thinking and doing and set our eyes on a new reality. So where do we capture this new vision? Where is life taking us? How do we read the road signs? In this book, Walking through Troubled Waters, we will explore the process of finding peace in the midst of our chaotic world. We will do so by probing the life of an ancient biblical character--King David. What does such an ancient figure have to teach us about living through troubled times? His story may well reflect our own experience. David's story is a drama of his life-changing transitions, which he had to overcome; and through these changes, he has much to teach us. Each time he found himself facing a new transition, this great king revealed a heart for God. And with this strong belief system, he was guided through some troubling times. Through faith, he transformed some simple words into a prayer to the Almighty. His faith in God was, therefore, the foundation to overcoming many of the challenges he had to face as a king and as a man. What can faith do? It can turn a boy into a warrior. And with a warrior's spirit, he had the strength to defeat those challenges before him. With faith, he learned to hear God's voice as he was guided through those troubled waters. Through faith, God taught him patience; and with patience, David learned that everything happened in God's perfect time. David had to face many of his enemies who tried to destroy him. He had to face his own sin and the rebellion in his family; and each time he triumphed. His final challenge was facing his own death. Did he find peace? I will let you be the judge. More importantly, can you, like King David, find peace in these troubling times?
