The account of Joseph’s life in the Bible begins with a seventeen year old being sold off as a slave and concludes with that same slave becoming second-in-command of all ancient Egypt. If you have always wanted to know what it would have been like for Joseph in the context of that time in Egypt, then this book is for you. Following the Biblical narrative carefully and with research into ancient Egypt of the time, I paint a picture of what Joseph would have experienced. Everything included in this story has a foundation either from the Bible itself or from historical texts.
This book carries you to ancient times. The story begins in Bethel when Joseph was a little boy, and ends with reconciliation with his family. In between are the experiences of his eventful life: the dreams from God, being sold to merchants, the journey to Egypt, life as a slave, in the prison, his promotion by Pharaoh and life as a leader. The Bible account is stirring on its own, but here you will get more detail and new perspectives. What you read will intrigue, inform, move and inspire you. It is a beautiful testament of God’s faithfulness.
