Review: The Joseph Road

The Joseph Road
by Jerry White
NavPress Publishers, 2010

Jerry White tells the biblical story of Joseph and his journey in Egypt; all this compared with the nowadays ordinary life people. Joseph's life is a fight between dreams (always they say the future) and destiny (with God's sign).

Style: the book's narrative is easy to follow as White is a popular speaker and keeps your attention high all through the book.

The Joseph's story is interspersed with the events of White's personal life; usually I don't like authors talking about personal failure or success, White this time has changed my mind: he tells his story without pride or recrimination, following, as Joseph, his own path because already marked, although not all the dreams become reality.

The Joseph Road is also fun when White reports excerpts from the Egyptian Gazette (maybe from Jerry's personal library).

Reflection questions at the end of each chapter helps you to bring this book again and again.

I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
