My childhood is filled with memories of Old Testament stories. I loved it. I was a rowdy, obnoxious, desperately-in-need-of-the-not-yet-popular-ADHD-medication kid and yet I would sit spellbound for flannel-graph vacation bible school story time.
Story captures our imagination. Story stirs our souls. Story has a way of bringing our minds and our hearts to the same location where belief is bred. The Old Testament historical books (Joshua – 2 Chronicles) are stories. Among them are some of the most well-known stories in human history: Joshua and the battle of Jericho, Samson and Delilah, David and Goliath, just to name a few.
