Joseph's life, detailed in Genesis, is a story of love, hate, slavery, power, and forgiveness, and although written millennia ago, still holds valuable lessons for Christians today. This book explores the possibility of a deeper trust of God in the face of suffering and hardship.
The life of Joseph detailed in the book of Genesis is a story of love, hate, slavery, power, and forgiveness. Although written millennia ago, it has immensely valuable lessons for Christians today. Scholar John Lennox emphasizes the major themes in the Joseph narrative-such as God's sovereignty, suffering, temptation, forgiveness, and faith-and applies them to readers at a personal level. This detailed look at Joseph's life will invite readers into a deeper trust of God in the face of suffering and hardship.

Between 2007 and 2011, Lennox was involved in numerous public debates in the UK, US, and Australia, wherein he articulated an intellectually robust Christian case for the existence of God. His interlocutors have included Richard Dawkins, the late Christopher Hitchens, and Peter Singer.
