Faith Joseph's Story: A Novel and Christian Bible Study by Sandra Lea Hardage

I want to begin my review by saying this is an excellent book to read. It is an easy to understand way of telling a wonderful story from the Bible. Joseph was his father Jacob's favorite son, the youngest of the family then of eleven sons. He was not only his favorite son he gave him a special coat. His mother died giving life to his little brother whose name was Benjamin. This caused his father to show him even more favoritism. Most of us have known about this story from our childhood Bible Schools and other Bible Studies we have had in our lives. Faith-Joseph's Story is a different view of Joseph's life. It is written in the first person making the first half of the book a novel about the life, faith and Gods plan and purpose for Joseph. Also a way to help others and to help his family. Jealousy and envy among brothers then is like it is today with brothers and sisters in some families. Joseph was very prideful when he was young causing his brothers to hate him. Latter in his life he learned to depend upon the God of his fathers "YHWH" to forgive him and God had caused him to have a forgiving heart toward his brothers. He had forgiven them for the evil thing they did to him. We can learn a lot from this story in how to live our life to serve others. The author has put a section in her book on how to become a Christian and an example of how to pray the sinners prayer. Faith is the ability to receive the will of God. Joseph's life is an example of what a Christ-like person should be today and everyday of our life! The second half of the book is a Bible Study based upon the story of Joseph. You can do this study as a group or as an individual Bible study.
