Item description for Joseph: Overcoming Obstacles Through Faithfulness (Men of Character.) by Gene A. Getz...
Overview Robbed and sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph could have lived a life filled with bitterness and hate. Instead, he stood on his faith in God to save him, and eventually returned home in triumph to pardon those who had wronged him. Disappointment can destroy the joy of living, or, by contrast, make it all the more beautiful and precious. With faith, perseverance will always outlast persecution. The Men of Character series highlights the lives of men in the Bible whose relationships with God we can learn from today. Each of these leaders faced trials, frustration and failure, yet was inspired by God to achieve great goals.
One in a series of twelve books by Gene Getz examining role models of the Old and New Testaments in situations relevant to modern times.

A Great Read on the Life of Joseph Aug 11, 2007
"Joseph" is another installation of the Men of Character series written by Dr. Gene Getz in the mid-late 1990s. The titles are just as relevant today as they were when published.
Joseph focuses on the amazing story of the boy who went from being the favorite of 12 sons to being sold into slavery, being tempted by his boss' wife, thrown into prison, and then all of a suddent, becoming 2nd in command of all Egypt.
Getz' writing style is easy to follow and flows freely and the book contains several excellent principles to ponder when going through similar trials. The book is more for devotional or spiritual growth purposes instead of a deep theological study.
Anyone who reads the book may find that some aspects of his/her life may be similar to the trials Joseph faced and will be encouraged to rely on God to see him/her through.
