Walls of Jericho come tumbling down

The Brick Testament website has been updated this week with four new illustrated stories from the Book of Joshua, including the famous story of how God helped the Israelites topple the city walls of Jericho and then slaughter every last man, woman, and child inside (save for one prostitute), steal all their silver, gold, and other precious items, and then burn the city to the ground and put a curse on anyone who might consider rebuilding it. This powerful and inspiring story has been thoughtfully rendered in LEGO bricks by The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith.
