Really good handling of the text and linking to see the fulfilment in Christ with helpful application.
Excellent for Quiet Times or for the preacher. A great model of OT exposition.

Like Dale Ralph Davis' books (published by Baker and Christian Focus), but with greater resolve to see how the text points to Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Tops! 27 Aug. 2013
By DocTheology - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author is one of the general editors of this OT Gospel series and his skill of seeing the gospel message in this book on Joseph is more than valuable. I trust that by the time you are done the entire Joseph story will never be taught the same in your local church. His keep insights into each of Joseph's brother and father is very insightful and the blessings to Judah (Christ was of the tribe of Judah) reveals how God's plan was revealed in such a unique and awesome fashion. Buy the whole series.

4.0 out of 5 stars What was shadow in the Old becomes the reality in the New 2 July 2013
By Roger Leonhardt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Part commentary - part inspirational, this book takes us through the life of Joseph. As the subtitle says, this is the Gospel according to Joseph.

This is the first book in the "The Gospel According to The Old Testament" series that I have read. The series' main goal is to show how the whole bible was given to us for one purpose - God wanted us to hear the good news of what He has done for man. The Old Testament points to Christ and what He did in the cross, resurrection, and ascension. What was shadow in the Old becomes the reality in the New.

Here, Duguid takes us through the life of Joseph and shows us it's relation to Christ and the Christian life. Most think of Joseph as almost perfect, but the author shows us that there were things he did wrong that caused many of his troubles, especially in his early life.

We can take comfort that we do not have to be perfect for God to work in our situation. We see the struggles Joseph went through and how God used those hard times to accomplish His purposes. We see God working through impossible situations.

A look at the Chapter headings gives an understanding of the theme of the book:

1. Hope for Dysfunctional Families (Genesis 37:1-11)
2. Shattered Dreams (Genesis 37:12-36)7
3. A Breakthrough for Victims and Sinners (Genesis 38)
4. God's Wonderful Plan (Genesis 39)
5. When Hope Gets Put on Hold (Genesis 40)
6. Becoming Fruitful in the Land of Your Affliction (Genesis 41)
7. Reunion or Reconciliation? (Genesis 42)
8. Making Peace (Genesis 43)
9. Reconciled at Last (Genesis 44:1-45:15)
10. From Famine to Fortune (Genesis 45:16-46:27)
11. Better Than We Deserve (Genesis 46:28-47:31)
12. Famous Last Words (Genesis 47:28-48:22)
13. Mixed Blessings (Genesis 49:1-28)
14. Dead and Buried? (Genesis 49:29-50:26)

Throughout the book, Duguid gives us hope in our own lives that the situations we struggle with are being used by God for our good. What we see as a setback, God is using to progress our lives to the ultimate goal He has in mind.

I enjoyed this book. It is written in an easy-to-read style and contains some good information.

I recommend it and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book, free of charge, from P&R Publishing Company and Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hope in God 14 July 2013
By Prentice House - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
How we deal with disappointment and trials says much about our faith. This is especially true as the years pass and no conclusion is realized. Dr Duguid has once again blessed the church that he loves and serves by showing how God uses all the myriad of disjointed events in our life to complete our sanctification. God is greatly honored in this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great help in my lesson preparation 12 April 2015
By Miss Beth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been a great help as I've been preparing lessons on Joseph. So grateful that another teacher recommended it to me and I've been able to pass along that recommendation to others. If this is an indication of the quality of the rest of the series, I'm looking forward to investing in a few others of those volumes and learning from them.
5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful easy to understand 6 Aug. 2014
By C. Rietkerk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book. I have many of his other books as well. He writes so well and it is easy to understand. He does a great job of bringing out the application of Scripture. I highly recommend any of his books. If you want to enrich your study of God's Word, he is the one who can shed insight on the text at hand.
