Bonus Reading, Joshua

Joshua Commands the Sun to Stand Still  

Today's reading recounts yet another battle in the conquest of the Promised Land -- Joshua and the Hebrews defeating the Amorites.  The unique thing is that Joshua asked the sun and moon stand still -- and thus time itself stop -- until the battle against the Amorites could be completed and the victory claimed.

Read Joshua 10:1-27  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
