It is not easy to put God first. Pressures come in life, criticisms and misunderstandings arise. Disillusion can very easily set in. To keep going for God is a more difficult task than slipping into mediocrity and 'laid back' Christian commitment. This book on the life of Joseph is aimed at proving that you can go on for God no matter what age you are.
Seventeen? See Joseph go on for God despite jealousy at home. Twenty-eight? See Joseph suffer in prison for moral purity. Thirty? Study Joseph save starving African countries. One hundred and ten? Listen to Joseph's dying words which bring hope to distressed spirits to this day.
You will be surprised to discover how relevant Joseph's life is to the nitty-gritty of yours. You can learn and be inspired to go on for God just like he did.
This love story begins with tragedy, but then out of the womb of all tragedy there comes something beautiful, which, if the tragedy had never occurred, would never have been seen. Yet, it is more than a love story between a desperately poor girl and a very wealthy landowner: it is a story of love for God, of love for His people and all that they believe. Facing loneliness, poverty and alienation from the culture in which she was, Ruth allowed God to have His way with her life and accepted the rough with the smooth as the matchless Divine Potter slowly moulded her into the person He wanted her to be.
