    One part adventure story, one part archaeological detective work, one part spiritual exploration, Walking the Bible vividly recounts an inspiring personal odyssey (by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel) through the greatest stories ever told.

    "The Bible as Literature?"
    Overall

    This could have been a really good travelog -- the author/narrator does a good job of describing local color as he visits various Biblical locations. Unfortunately, my enjoyment of the book was spoiled by the author's cavalier treatment of the Biblical text. Time and again he dismisses the Bible as "stories" or "allegories" -- even the foundational histories of his own "faith" This book would have had a broader appeal if the author had at least pretended to remain neutral by simply reading the biblical text and highlighting both modern and historical culture and geography without being so heavy-handed with his personal philosophies.
