Book Review~Faith: Joseph's Story by Sandra Lea Hardage
I've always enjoyed studying individual people from the Bible in-depth. I was immediately drawn to the beautifully illustrated cover of Faith: Joseph's Story, A Novel and Christian Bible Study by Sandra Lea Hardage. Joseph's story is one of perseverance through horrible experiences. At the tender age of 17, Joseph was hated by his brothers and sold into slavery. Later, he was falsely accused of a crime and put in prison. Through it all, he remained faithful to God's plan for his life and emerged victorious. What a great lesson for us all.
Faith Joseph's Story is written from Joseph's point of view, as if her were narrating. I really enjoyed that it was written this way! There are nine chapters after the Preface, Acknowledgements, and Introduction:
Chapter 1: Family Life
Chapter 2: Sold into Slavery
Chapter 3: In Potiphar's House
Chapter 4: Prison Life
Chapter 5: Pharaoh's Dream
Chapter 6: Joseph and His Brothers
Chapter 7: Back to Egypt
Chapter 8: The Final Test
Chapter 9: Blessings and Forgiveness
The remainder of the book is packed with great information: an Epilogue, Becoming a Christian, a 75-page Bible Study with a Leader's Guide, and Joseph's Story Poem.
