22) Walking the Bible: A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of Moses, by Bruce Feiler

Travelogue through Israel, Palestine, Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan, in the company of archaeologist Avner Goren who gets most of the best lines. It's a very interesting exploration of the intersection between geography, history, archaeology and personal belief. Could perhaps have been a bit shorter; and I'd have got more from it if I were more familiar with the minutiae of the Pentateuch.
