    The book of Joshua is a historical book about the conquest of the promise land. Joshua was most likely the author of this book since he was present for the time it took place; except for his death, which believed to be written by a high priest named, Phinehas. Joshua was the man God called to lead the people of Israel into the land of Canann after Moses died. Out of all of the Israelites that escaped slavery from Egypt, only two original people made it into the Promised Land, Joshua and Caleb.

    Joshua and the Children There were a lot of reasons Joseph Girzone titled his book "Joshua and the Children". I think the main reason for the title was because of Joshua’s purpose in the town.

    The Concert of a Lifetime The concert has begun after a fifteen minute delay caused from the powder snow that started early on in the day and continued through the evening. There I stood up in front of the small crowd on this snowy Sunday evening. I glanced out upon the crowd as the piano picked up speed and intensity. I knew that I was about to strike that F chord in a few measures. I quickly removed the moisture from my fingers with the cloth I brought with me. The band had a special meeting planned
