Author Bruce Feiler may have intended this trip to the Middle East to be primarily a historical trip, but it is clear that it became a genuine pilgrimage, during which encounters with living individuals in the present put him in touch with the past and the deep roots of his own religious sentiments. Robert Blumenfeld's narration fits the story wonderfully. Feiler's account wanders and doubles back on itself, and Blumenfeld allows his pace to change accordingly. At times, Blumenfield's voice is so full of emotion and discovery that it's hard to remember that the events described didn't happen to him.
