4.0 out of 5 stars
fascinating archeological investigation, 15 Aug. 2013
Feiler has a real gift for intellectual curiosity and a clear, unpretentious writing style. The academic experts he befriends and travels with add much to his narrative; I found myself wishing I could have lunch with them all. I am not especially interested in the spiritual side of this book, but Feiler is never overbearing and he never loses sight of the connection between landscape, history, and the religious heritage of so many different faiths. Readers who are more interested in Feiler's spiritual musings will find much to think about and learn a lot in the process. Fascinating writer, fascinating, unpretentious book.
