Follows author Bruce Feiler as he journeys by foot, jeep, rowboat, and camel through some of the greatest stories ever told, the five books of Moses. Begins in the holy city of Jerusalem and travels to a possible site of the garden of Eden on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates in Turkey. Climbs Mt. Ararat in search of Noah's ark and explores the sulfurous land by the Dead Sea, with its salt pillars called "Lot's wife." Visits the ancient ruins of Egyptian cities where the Israelites were said to toil under an oppressive pharaoh and examines the harsh environment of the Sinai, where the Israelites wandered for forty years. Intersperses dramatic scripture readings to bring viewers closer to the biblical settings.

In this film, the narrator takes a journey through the lands of the Torah (or Pentateuch) to reconnect with his Jewish faith. Beginning in Mesopotamia and the Garden of Eden, Bruce Feiler travels in the footsteps of Abraham and Moses. Sadly, some of the remote places filmed are probably out of reach in today's strife. The stories told by the local Bedouin are particularly fascinating, as well as the visit to the the 1500 year old library at St. Catherines monastery in the Sinai. This would be a great primer for a Bible study group . It also emphasises the common heritage of the three great monotheistic faiths.

Spectacular photography but the narrative is disgusting. I considered playing it without sound to reduce irritation.
