In a world where faith is fading and integrity is rare, the life and legacy of Joseph shine bright, showing us that following God brings hope even in the worst of circumstances. Join bestselling author Charles Swindoll as he sheds light on a man whose tenacious faith kept him strong in the face of temptation, danger, and torment.
Great Lives: Joseph 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.
From his famous multi-colored coat through the jealous rage that prompts his brothers to sell him into slavery to his astounding rise to national power, Swindoll follows Joseph through temptation, imprisonment, his ascension in Egyptian society, and the brothers who deceived him.
Despite the incredible challenges he faced throughout his life, Joseph stood firm, exemplifying what's possible when ordinary people maintain their connections with God.
In Great Lives: Joseph, the third installment in Swindoll's bestselling Great Lives from God's Word series, Swindoll traces the life and legacy of a man who exemplified grace under pressure, teaching us how to:
Be quick to forgiveLive with integrityTrust God every step of the way
Joseph's story reads like an epic novel, filled with intrigue, tension, temptation, and torrential emotions--but it heartens us as we face the same kinds of difficulties today, proving that we can triumph over whatever life sends our way.
Before I could start my career in entertainment, God had me read this book on Joseph. How much it has and will reflect my life. Thanks Charles for not giving up writing this book. It was for me.
God is always sovereignly working
Despite a dysfunctional family, Joseph was faithful and God used Joseph to accomplish His sovereign purposes. This is an excellent study. Bruce Worth - Dallas
A Man’s Life That Should Be Studied
This is the third installment of Swindoll's "Great Lives From God's Word" collection. I have also read Swindoll's biblical biographies of Moses, David, Job, Paul, and Jesus. I picked up this book at my school library to learn more about the life of Joseph, a life that I needed to seriously review. I found this reading to be very timely and extremely beneficial. Joseph's story is absolutely amazing. I always viewed Joseph simply as an arrogant youth, but Joseph was totally a Godly man who trusted in our Master in every situation. Joseph lived a life free of bitterness despite being wronged so many times, and he modeled grace to those who simply did not deserve it. Joesph was a great man because of his faith in our Father. I have been reminded that Elohim sovereignly works all things for His glory and for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). All things.
