Joseph of Egypt retells the well known Biblical account of a Hebrew boy taken to Egypt as a slave. This book carries the reader to ancient times by carefully expounding on the account given in Scripture. Written mainly in pure narrative and using only dialogue recorded in the Bible (to maintain consistency), the story begins in Bethel when Joseph was a little boy, and ends with him as second in charge of Egypt. In between are the experiences of his eventful life: his mother’s death, 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. It is a moving story that gives you a deeper understanding of what Joseph must have gone through.
The Bible account is stirring on its own, but this book offers more detail, provides new perspectives and makes it more real to the reader. If you would like to buy the book you can follow this link to Amazon. You can also read an excerpt from the book here.
