Publisher's Summary

From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph's place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God's salvation plan for humanity.

After listening to this audiobook, you will understand how Joseph's story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us with a great example of humbly obeying God, even when we don't understand, and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.

Exchange your doubt for courage this Advent and Christmas season. Learn to accept and glorify God's will even when circumstances make it difficult to do so.

False advertising, this book is NOT the Xmas story thru Joseph’s eyes

I hated this book. Hated every noun and consonant of it. Hated it’s lack of historicity, hated the forced sentimentality of the narration, hated the reaching patriarchal mansplanations of it’s premises. If you’re looking for a “story of through Christmas through the eyes of Joseph”, this isn’t it....but if you’re looking for poorly researched evangelical hogwash...eat up.

A lot of “filler”

A lot of “filler” and not a lot of history of Joseph as expected. Left with not a lot on answers about Joseph.

Joseph, the Father of Our Lord

This is a look at Joseph as the father of Jesus. A good listen, and a thoughtful consideration of what it took to accept the call of God upon his life, to marry Mary and raise the Savior of the world. Even though it was only a little over 2 1/2 hours long, it could've been told in an hour, I think. The author made some good points that I hadn't thought about, for which I am thankful.
