Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1036-1037 Walking the Bible

Walking the Bible was a best selling book for Bruce Feiler, recently made into a 3-part PBS series. I read the book and saw the series and enjoyed both very much. And since several other people told me the same thing, I’m doing a couple of programs in acknowledgement. I should mention that I enjoyed the book and TV series more for its travelogue aspects than it’s insights, my perspective is a little different than Bruce Feiler’s. But he has relied on some of the same archaeologists we’ve interviewed, such as Gabi Barkay and Avner Goren. We’ve talked to Gabi a number of times, but it’s been about a dozen years since we had Avner Goren on the show. So we’ve dug deep into the archives and we’re featuring that 2-part Avner Goren interview once again.
