Publisher's Summary

No family today is more dysfunctional than Joseph's. No one faced greater temptation than Potiphar's wife offered Joseph. No faith is challenged more severely than was Joseph's on death row. Yet Joseph stood firm, exemplifying what is possible when ordinary people maintain their connections with God. Like an epic novel filled with intrigue, tension, and torrential emotions, Joseph's triumphant story touches us all. This third volume in Charles Swindoll's "Great Lives" series presents a fresh look at one of the most intriguing characters in the Old Testament and focuses on the virtue of forgiveness in the face of deceit and betrayal.

Excellent insight to a biblical icon.

great story

the story of Joseph is incredible would have been nicer if the author would have used more creative interpretations of scripture instead of just reading it verbatim making it seem very repetitive

What an inspiration!

This book on the life of Joseph and the life it details are both truly excellent. It is both a delight to listen to and an inspiration to live out in my own life. It also proves that God is not only in our good times but very much a part of our dark and difficult times, "strengthening, completing, perfecting and settling us - making us what we ought to be. Equipping us for every good purpose, while He, Himself works that within us that is pleasing in His sight". A settled persuasion about this will enable us to allow Him to get the job done. I said the book is excellent, an often inappropriately used adjective that is wholly appropriate here. This is truly a five star work on all levels of measurement.
