Publisher's Summary

Joseph's pit came in the form of a cistern. Yours came in the form of a diagnosis, a foster home, or a traumatic injury. Joseph was thrown into a hole and despised. And you? Thrown into an unemployment line and forgotten, into a divorce and betrayed, into a bed and abused. The pit. Life is reduced to one quest: to get out and never get hurt again. Not simply done. Pits have no easy exit. Joseph's story got worse before it got better. Abandonment led to enslavement, entrapment, and imprisonment. He was sucker-punched. Sold out. Mistreated. People made promises only to break them. Offered gifts only to take them. If hurt is a swampland, then Joseph was sentenced to a life of hard labor in the Everglades. Yet he never gave up. Bitterness never staked its claim. Anger never metastasized into hatred. His heart never hardened; resolve never vanished. He not only survived; he thrived. By the end of his life, Joseph was the second most powerful man of his generation. His life offers this lesson: in God's hands, intended evil becomes ultimate good. Joseph would be the first to tell you, life in the pit stinks. Yet, for all its rottenness, doesn't the pit do this much? It forces you to look upward. Someone from up there must come down here and give you a hand. God did for Joseph. And at the right time, in the right way, he will do the same for you.

    "Getting Beyond Church - Making it Real"

    This book was very much worth making a review. I read a lot of Christian material but this was my first Max Lucado book. I have heard of him and some of his material but this was the first full book. He tackles what is a very tough issue in a very biblical way. If you know the Lord and you are dealing with something very painful I highly recommend this book. Even if you aren't (at the moment) it is a great resource to go deeper with who our Father in heaven is, what he did for us thru His son Jesus Christ, who we are and how he wants us to know ourselves and him. I will listen to this again for sure.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I listened to this book straight through a couple times because I'm going through a difficult time right now. Max's writing is very encouraging. If you're unfamiliar with Max Lucado, this book is a great place to start.


    Any additional comments?

    Wayne Shepherd is a superb narrator. I enjoyed listening to his soft, encouraging voice.

    Story
    "Finding the courage to keep going."
    What made the experience of listening to You'll Get Through This the most enjoyable?

    Hearing that trials may come but there is hope and God will bring you through. Just like God was with so many other's who wen through trials like we do and others who failed throughout the bible and God is still faithful to forgive and rescue. We may not understand why the circumstances of our lives are in such turmoil, but we can rely on the one who does! We will get through this and we know that the infinite will reach own and touch the finite and we will make it through to the Glory of God! AMEN!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The stories of Joseph, Jesus, King David, etc....each one waiting 20, 30 or more years to see the start of their ministry or the victory and deliverance God had for them, including God's own son. He waited 33 years to start His earthly ministry. Only in His death was the fulfillment of God's most gracious gift of all to man. Salvation fulfilled. Just because we are waiting doesn't mean that we are not in God's will.


    What about Wayne Shepherd’s performance did you like?

    He has a calming and clear way of reading. Smooth transitions and appropriate inflections that made it flow instead of choppy. Also giving the listener the ability to decide for themselves what was important to terms of what has important to them instead of feeling like you were being preached at I was able to flow along with the story, stopping where I wanted to and allowing the message to inspire my own understanding and speak specifically to the issues in my own life. Ability to identify where my life reflected those being represented and hearing the messages that were relevant to my own life without being distracted by the reader's own idea of what was important.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I would say that the most poignant moment for me was when I realized that every trial in my life that I have experienced and was afraid that the pressure and stress would kill me, and then it would get to the point where I was upset that I didn't die, were not in vain. God was able to take each one and I not only did I survive but I was able to move forward stronger and wiser than before. I realized the more I depend on God, doesn't make me weak as some would say from a worldly perspective, but actually is wise because His strength is the most evident when it replaces my weakness. Just like Joseph, my trials may seem long and wearisome, GOD is still in control and working it out for my good.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are struggling with not just one trial, but one after another, and growing weary of the battle, trust the God who is able to not only deliver and restore you but actually able to bless you way beyond what you could ask or think. Thank God for righteous servants like Pastor Max Lucado, who are willing and faithful to share the messages that the Holy Spirit inspires to help encourage the international family of Christ believers navigating this world with all it's ups and downs. Reading this book will bless your life.

    "Just what I needed"

    Sound Biblical truths spoken ever so gently and humbly. Real life anecdotes combined with the story of Joseph provide encouragement and hope for a life that doesn't seem fair right now.

    "If you need a religious pep talk... this is your"
    Would you try another book from Max Lucado and/or Wayne Shepherd?

    Probably not. It's the same old, same old... God will take care of you. Just have faith. blah, blah, blah.


    What was most disappointing about Max Lucado’s story?

    Nothing really of any substance.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Wayne Shepherd?

    Maybe. Nothing wrong with the reading.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation. I have never found this comforting. A friend recommended and I took her up on it. Everyone means well, but this is so far from my personal experience that I just don't find it useful at all.

    "Joseph's Story is My Story"

    When faced with challenging times, you feel isolated. Joseph's story applies to everyone by showing us that God uses our struggling and hardships if we will look to him. Instead most of us are blinded by the grief and despair we are facing.

    Would you try another book from Max Lucado and/or Wayne Shepherd?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Max Lucado’s story?

    Same thing all over again. I've probably heard these things 1000 times before this book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Wayne Shepherd’s performances?

    Maybe. He was not that bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    There are really hidden gems but that's it. Probably not worth your time.

    "I love the story of Joseph"

    I enjoyed this book so much, I love the story of Joseph in the Bible. I saw the story being taught by Max on TV twice now and i was engaged to hear what he had to say so I just had to purchase it. It was just what I needed to hear.

    It's creative how he blinds the stories in the Bible and everyday people and ensures your story is not left out. A perfect encouragement for hope of great things that can come out of your own pain.
