Overview Sometimes the Ways of God Seem Like Hieroglyphics Sold by his brothers into slavery in a strange land, the pain in Joseph's ankles matched the pain in his heart. Where now was El Shaddai? But Mishma, the Ishmaelite merchant, saw something special in him. By prayerful diligence Joseph worked his way into the confidence of his new owner, Potiphar. "At this rate you'll be running the entire country before you are done," teased a scribe. Soon slaves were scrambling to meet his needs as he had for others. But heart-rending rumors from home, of the deaths of Er and Onan, of the affair of Judah and Tamar, exacted their toll. And success has its snares. Her name was Lady Tenefret. She had connections, and she had Potiphar. But it wasn't Potiphar she wanted. Based upon meticulous research, Fivash paints a compelling panorama of Egyptian society, with authentic Egyptian names, clothing, and customs, and draws us deeply into Joseph's world. You will cheer as he maintains his integrity through prison and through the labyrinth of court intrigue to become ruler under Pharaoh. You will delight in his conquest of the heart of beautiful Asenath. And you will be left with a deeper faith in his God. The author creates a detailed picture of daily life in Egypt with a cast of nearly 80 vibrant characters. Her narrative, filled with fresh insights into one of the great stories of all time, unlocks the secrets of the culture that cradled the Exodus.

I rarely buy books to keep for myself after I read them. This book was loaned to me by a friend, i read it in one week. One of THE best books ever...and i have read a few. The writing was great and I felt as if I was reading a best selling novel and not a religious book.
Amazing Book Oct 29, 2007
This was a great book. My husband and I could hardly put it down. It really helps you realize what it must of been like for Joseph with great detail of the era in which the story took place.
Joseph, a real person Sep 23, 2007
In this book you live with Joseph through his dealings with fate. He is portrayed as human, with struggles and emotions, a developing deepening faith in God. A more accurate portrayal of the time and area than I have seen elsewhere. A great movement from favorite son of a rich man to slave to second ruler of Egypt.
One of My Favorite Books Jun 7, 2006
I enjoyed this book so much that I have read it at least four times. In fact, it has been just about long enough for another re-reading.
The Bible says little of the daily life of Joseph, dwelling on the high points of his life. Terri reminds us that Joseph was a real man, with real feelings, likes and dislikes, and questions and doubts about God just as we all have. And yet God worked through him to bring about a rescue, not just for the children of Abraham, but for the entire known world.
I've read it 10 times!! May 18, 2006
I've had read this book ten times. My father gave it to me. Joseph is one of my favorite stories from the Bible. I hope Mel Gibson buys the movie rights and makes a movie out of it in the same way he did with the Passion of the Christ. Thank you Mrs. Fivash and God Bless you and Your family.
