Item description for But God Meant It for Good: Lessons From the Life of Joseph by Ronnie McBrayer...
Overview What will you find in the story of Joseph? Jealousy, deception, injustice, forgiveness, redemption. We read about his dysfunctional family and feel the corkscrew turns of deceit and rivalry. We experience with him a crippling, sudden stop when he is alone and abandoned in a Middle Eastern prison. Then the speed in which he rises to the seat of world power takes the air from our lungs. Through it all, and sometimes in spite of it, God faithfully brings Joseph's life to its intended destiny. Ronnie McBrayer's exploration of Joseph's story helps readers find themselves in these often overlooked pages of the Old Testament. However, this is not a how-to book. There are no keys for successful living or catchy alliterated principles to revolutionize your life. But readers who are trying to make sense of their lives, who are wondering what God is doing in some faraway heaven, or who feel that the chaos of life has little meaning, may discover a clue to what God is doing in their lives.

More About Ronnie McBrayer
Ronnie McBrayer was born in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains and claims to have barely survived the fire-and-brimstone, fundamentalist upbringing of his childhood. But in the great comedy of God, Ronnie has spent his adulthood in ministry, both preaching in and protesting against; both loving and leaving; both running from and returning to the church. The faith he is trying to keep isn't in organized religion, however; it is in Jesus. Ronnie holds degrees in Christian education and theology. He has been a pastor, chaplain, leader in social justice ministries, and a writer. But the role he enjoys most is being husband to Cindy and father to Blayze, Bryce, and Braden. Ronnie is the author of "But God Meant It for Good" and "Keeping the Faith." He also writes a popular faith-based weekly column for the newspapers of the Freedom Communications group.
