After 40 years of wandering in the desert under old Moses the Israelites, God's Chosen People" are under orders to invade the "Promised Land ". But there are snags. The first is beefy opposition, lots of small kingdoms with well-equipped armies who don't like the Israelites, uppity desert nomads one little bit. And another more immediate snag is a socking great city in the way called Jericho. Jericho has to fall but how can this be achieved by an army armed with sharp sticks and stolen daggers? Well, the answer is a miracle. It's happened before, the escape from Egypt and the crossing of the Red Sea, all that manna from heaven, so it's going to happen again., And down will come those walls.Enter Ehud, the wily goatherd, whose family has just been wiped out. To survive he sets off and joins the army of Joshua, heir of Moses, and the general ordered by God to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land. This is a world where everyone believes God controls everything, from a good harvest to an upset stomach. But which God? The Israelites go for Yahweh with all his funny rules and commandments. Their enemies prefer Baal, a bit more easy-going but he likes child sacrificeInto this world of determined generals, cynical priests and self-serving courtiers comes the penniless Ehud. Pretty much able to turn his hand to anything from altar boy to duel-to-the- death he retains a sardonic view and speaks with compelling honesty. He always tell us as it is. Sometimes pretty, more often not, his version is not the cardboard cut-out story of heroes versus villains, all spears, sandals and fringed togas. There is no "Thou" and "Thee- Ing" here before the Walls of Jericho, and no one "rends their garments". They swear, they scream, they cheat, they get drunk, they whore, they cry for their mothers - as soldiers always have. And, of course, they triumph, and those walls come "atumblin' down". With some thanks to Ehud. "
