Details

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. Subjects include:

• God's Man in Egypt (37:36)

• Prospering in Prison (39:20–23)

• What Can I Believe? (45:25–28)

• The Living Church (48:1–11)

• Joseph: A Fruitful Vine (49:22–26)

• Blessings upon Children's Children (50:22–23)
