No man in Scripture lived more consistently and completely for God than did Joseph, a favorite son of Jacob. In times of adversity and in times of prosperity-both of which offered the temptation to deny God and his lordship-Joseph remained steadfast.
Living by Faith is the third and final volume on Genesis. Volume 1 focused on God's relationship to the cosmos and to all peoples of the earth. Volume 2 traced the "new beginning" of God's plan of redemption. In volume 3, Boice follows the complete story of Joseph, a "man for all seasons." By exploring Joseph's loyalty to God, Boice presents him as an example for Christians today.
Dr. Boice's commentary series is a treasure for the church and for her pastors. No expository preacher can afford to be without it.
