***I received this book for free in exchange for a fair review as part of the CWA Review Crew***
I think that God's been trying to talk to me.
I received Faith: Joseph's Story by Sandra Lea Hardage a few weeks ago. The first part of the book is a novel of Joseph's life. The author takes some liberties in minor details and weaves a very interesting story about the life of Joseph, before his journey to Egypt and after. It is thoroughly enjoyable! The book doesn't stop there.
The 2nd half of the book is a Bible study on faith. Using the lives of those in Joseph's family (starting with Abraham) and then Joseph's life this is a very in-depth study of faith. I am amazed that I am learning so many things from such a small (often read!) section of scripture. The 3rd part of the book is the leader's notes making this a wonderful study for small groups.....I will admit that I have had to really examine my life with this study (especially today's readings on jealousy and bitterness...ouch).
Since beginning this book and study, I have encountered the topic of faith in my regular private readings, Sunday school lessons and Sunday sermons. I guess God knew I needed to focus on this!
If you want to start digging into Faith: Joseph's Story, you can do so for $14.99 (softcover) or $3.99 (ebook). If you get the ebook, print that baby out. Trust me, you are going to be writing and highlighting and circling.....I am anyway. Good, good stuff!
