The life of Joseph has always fascinated Christians. It is story telling at its best and would probably match any soap opera on our TVs today. Here is a dysfunctional family where the patriarch Jacob finds himself with four wives and 12 sons. Not surprisingly he loves Joseph, his first son by his favourite wife Rachel and makes no secret of this. Equally unsurprisingly Joseph's ten older brothers hate him and plan his demise. Thus begins Joseph's remarkable life of ups and downs. He is sold into slavery in Egypt but wins his master's favour (and his master's wife's unwelcome attention), then he is thrown into prison on a false charge and again wins the favour of the guard. Finally, in a truly remarkable turn of events he ends up as ruler of Egypt, second only to Pharaoh.

When famine hits his part of the world, he is re-united first to his now repentant brothers and then to his aged father. At the end of his life he is able to look back and see God's providential hand in it all and is able to say to his brothers, "You intended it for evil, but God intended it for good."

David Kingdon's fine book is a great introduction to the life of Joseph. Kingdon handles the twists and turns of the narrative with great skill, majoring on the main points and drawing from them relevant lessons for us today. He writes with clarity and simplicity, something that modern authors need to learn to do. Most Christians in the world today are in the developing world and English is not their first language. Should we not write books with them in mind? Kingdon certainly does this and is to be commended for it.
