9780849984211: Joseph: From Pit to Pinnacle (Bible Study Guide)

In Great Lives: Joseph, Charles Swindoll reveals to us a man buffeted with the same kinds of problems we face today, whose tenacious faith in God ultimately won him great honor and achievement.

No family today is more dysfunctional than Joseph's was. No one faces greater temptation than that which Potiphar's wife offered Joseph. No faith is challenged more severely than was Joseph's on death row. Yet Joseph stood firm, exemplifying what is possible when ordinary people maintain their connections with God. Like an epic novel filled with intrigue, tension, and torrential emotions, Joseph's triumphiant story touches us all. 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.

About the Author:

Charles R. Swindoll has devoted his life to the clear, practical teaching and application of God's Word.

Chuck and Cynthia, his partner in life and ministry, have four grown children and ten grandchildren.

From AudioFile:

Michael Kramer's melodious baritone beguiles the listener with the biblical account of Joseph. Kramer characterizes Joseph's brother's rage and jealousy, Joseph's imprisonment in Egypt, and his eventual rise from slavery to freedom and power. Kramer carefully depicts the emotions, the challenges, and the fears that grow into faith as Joseph follows God in spite of threatening circumstances. The depiction of Potiphar's wife's seduction of Joseph is exceptionally authentic. Kramer captures her rage when Joseph flees from her sexual advances, only to leave an incriminating scrap of his coat behind in her clenched fist. Joseph's story testifies to the power of human endurance and God's ability to take what man intends for evil and turn it into good. G.D.W. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
