Teaching Religious Mythology 2: Battle of Jericho

Back in February I made the first post (Teaching Religious Mythology 1: Noah's Ark) of what I intend to be series on introducing different religious stories to kids and what resources are out there to help accomplish this.

In this second instalment, I change direction and start to focus on how Christians are teaching this story to children and ask what this is telling me about what could possibly be going on in the minds of people who would teach this stuff to young children.

Great stuff!  I don't think I've seen the bible approached from this perspective.  I have an old copy of Norman Vincent Peale's bible stories my grandma gave me when I was young.  I've been meaning to match that up w/ the real bible to see what's been dropped or changed.
