Joseph

Full Product Description

  • Want to better understand the story of Joseph?
  • John Lennox takes an insightful dive into the themes of the story
  • A great refresher on the last message of the life of Jospeph
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.

Joseph by John Lennox was published by Crossway Books in March 2019 and is our 5373rd best seller. The ISBN for Joseph is 9781433562938.

Endorsements

“Deep, rich, and nourishing—Joseph is vintage Lennox. He has the rare gift of opening life as well as the biblical text, so that we come away understanding God’s ways more clearly and trusting him more fully.” - Os Guinness, author, The Call

“I thought I really knew the story of Joseph—but was thrilled by the fact that in chapter after chapter, there were so many fresh insights. If you don’t believe me, just turn to the chapter on Joseph and Potiphar’s wife. John Lennox has written a riveting commentary on one of the timeless characters of the Bible.” - Rico Tice, Senior Minister (Evangelism), All Souls Church, London

“You may think this story is familiar, but again and again Lennox brings forth new gems in this expert guide through Joseph’s dysfunctional family history. Despite the depth of tragedy, God brought hope.” - Peter J. Williams, Principal, Tyndale House, Cambridge; author, Can We Trust the Gospels?
