Reviews - What do customers think about Joseph: Man Of Integrity & Forgiveness (Great Live?
Get it, read it, give it to a friend. Apr 29, 2010
Seriously, what can you say about this book - the story of Joseph is one of the great stories not only of the Bible, but really of all time; and Swindoll is a great author and communicator - put them together and you have one very good read! I stopped short of 5 stars in my recommendation only because I thought Swindoll was a little wordy and stretched the book out too much. But the material covered, the insight given, and the applications to life today are worth the price of the book and then some. Great book to read and great book to give as a gift to a friend - you won't go wrong with this one!

I'm now reading Joseph, and I've already read two other character studies in this series by Chuck Swindoll. I've gotten a lot out of all of them. Swindoll does a good job of identifying why the person was and acted the way they did. And he draws many parellels to our lives today. In this book I've learned a lot about the family life Joseph came from: he was a favored son of a passive father. But it's not just the facts that are recounted. Swindoll goes back to study Joseph's father, Jacob, and the behavior and events that shaped him. We learn the impact of all that history on Joseph's life. When the jealous brothers eventually sold him into slavery, this book explores the works God began to do in his life and the immeasurable faith Joseph must have had in order to sustain him through the tough years that followed. I simply enjoy Swindoll's attitude and style. He pulls a lot of wisdom out of the verses in the Bible and helps bring it to life. You can easily imagine yourself in Joseph's shoes and how you would have responded. You learn the lessons of trusting in God through difficult situations and the difference that YOUR attitude can have while you wait.
