In a world where faith is fading and integrity is rare, the life of Joseph shines like a brilliant start in the nighttime sky, showing us that following God brings hope even in the worst of circumstances. In "Joseph", Chuck Swindoll reveals a man buffeted with the same kinds of problems we face today--or worse. A man whose tenacious faith in God ultimately won him great honor and achievement.
No family today is more dysfunctional than Joseph's. No one faces greater temptation than Potiphar's wife offered this man of faith. No faith is challenged more than Joseph's as he sat on death row in an Egyptian prison. Yet Joseph stood firm, modeling for us what is possible when ordinary people maintain their connections with God.
Swindoll traces the life of this intriguing man from the famous multi-colored coat, through the jealous rage that prompts his brothers to sell him into slavery, to his astounding rise to a position of national power. He follows Joseph through temptation and imprisonment to his ascension in Egyption society when he explains the king's dream, revealing a grim and threatening future and proposing a plan for saving the nation ... and the brothers who deceived him.
Joseph's story reads like an epic novel, filled with intrigue, tension, temptation, and torrential emotions. And it heartens us today because we face the same kinds of difficulties, and he shows us we can triumph.
