Bruce's latest news

Five years ago, PBS asked me if I wanted to make a show on pilgrimage. I said I was interested in something you hear a lot, “I’m not religious; I’m spiritual. I’m on a journey.” Last year I went on six pilgrimages in 12 months–bathing with 100 million people in the Ganges, walking the Jesus Trail in the Galilee, trekking on a 700-mile Buddhist trail in Japan. The experience was life-changing and life-affirming, and the footage is mind-blowing. The series kicks off with 40 American wounded warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan bathing in the sacred waters of Lourdes, something never seen on TV before. The six, hour-long films premiere in December and are available for streaming on pbs.org/sacredjourneys. I hope you are moved as much as we were traveling with American pilgrims to some of the most historic places in the world. I know the experience will trigger some meaningful conversations with your loved ones.

Walking the Bible - A Photographic Journey

Walking the Bible - A Photographic Journey Book CoverInspired by the New York Times bestseller hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “an eloquently spiritual pilgrimage”

In 2004, Bruce Feiler-accompanied by a documentary film crew-reprised the 10,000-mile quest through the deserts of the Middle East that led to his breakthrough bestseller Walking the Bible. Filled with dozens of the finest contemporary photographs, including many taken by the author, this all-new keepsake illustrated book offers an unprecedented, visual journey through the actual places of some of history’s most famous events, from Mt. Ararat, where Noah’s ark landed, to the Red Sea, to Mt. Sinai. Combining breathtaking images, sweeping landscapes, intimate snapshots, and fascinating portraits-with his famously lively prose, Feiler provides a first-hand panorama of the inscrutable desert landscape where the world’s great religions were born-and finally puts a visual face on the stories that continue to inspire the human spirit.
