Joseph's life is a story of dramatic ups and downs, but while not ignoring the practical lessons that can be drawn from his life, Roger Ellsworth fastens our attention on Joseph's place in the drama of God's redemptive plan. The sometimes chaotic nature of Joseph's circumstances did not mean that God's plan was thrown off track. Those circumstances were part of the plan. That is the lesson that can bring us comfort in our own chaotic and turbulent times. We can rest assured that God is moving forward to finish his plan to the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you're looking for one of those disastrous studies that explore a biblical character as a model for coping with your problems, you will find Roger Ellsworth's Face2Face with Joseph disappointing; but if you're eager to see how biblical life finds its niche in God's plan, how human crud is bundled up in God's providence, or how a suffering servant points you to an unguessable Savior—well, then, here is your ticket.
