Read Your Bible Series

Since I write most of my blog posts for my kids to read as they get older, I'm considering writing a series covering some of the... interesting things you can find in the Bible.  I'd like for both of my children, and even some other people for that matter, to have a small but valuable resource to turn to when discussing the Bible.  Not to mention I think it would be good for me to brush up on some of the research I did some 20+ years ago.

This all started with a post I made to Facebook:

I'll include the passage for reference:
"12 Designate a place outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself. 13 As part of your equipment have something to dig with, and when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement. 14 For the Lord your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you."
 I plan on discussing the passage for a bit, much the way the local pastor might, but instead of trying to tell you, the reader, what you're supposed to read into it, I'll cover the words as they are written on the page.

No muss, no fuss.  I'll just review exactly what the book has written between the covers, rather than gloss over the ugly bits or try to convince you that there's a hidden meaning.  Also, I'll do my best to keep it simple, so as not to get too preachy.

I'll pick my first topic and get the series started in a few days...
