Every day it seems another so-called "hero" falls from grace, but in his Great Lives from God's Word series, Chuck Swindoll introduces you to heroes who stand the test of time.
In his third and latest volume, Joseph, Swindoll challenges Christians to aspire to the virtues of obedience, mercy, and courage---all of which characterized the life of this richly blessed child of God.
- For anyone who's every experienced temptation or family problems in their own or others lives
I've read the story of Joseph more than a dozen times, but it's never been explained to me like this, and I wish it had been, because it reveals what an amazing person Joseph was, to put up with all the trouble, temptation and suffering he did, and come through it a whole lot better than I probably would have.
It's a real encouragement, and for anyone who likes reading or hearing testimonies, I highly recommend this. There are no truly astounding miracles like in Acts, or Brother Yun's account, but rather it shows how anyone can succeed no matter what problems they may be facing, as long as they have the courage to constatly trust in God.
I started listening to this while cleaning my house during my day off, and couldn't stop, even after all my work was done. It's just that amazing. Seriously, everyone should hear this.
