Readers will be able to grasp the significance of the fall of the ancient city of Jericho, and the journeys and troubles of the Israelites.Meet the heroes and villains of The Old Testament - David and Goliath, strong Samson and treacherous Delilah, and find out how they won a place in bible history.
