Sometimes the Ways of God Seem Like Hieroglyphics

Sold by his brothers into slavery in a strange land, the pain in Joseph’s ankles matched the pain in his heart. Where now was El Shaddai? But Mishma, the Ishmaelite merchant, saw something special in him. By prayerful diligence Joseph worked his way into the confidence of his new owner, Potiphar. "At this rate you’ll be running the entire country before you are done," teased a scribe. Soon slaves were scrambling to meet his needs as he had for others.

But heart-rending rumors from home, of the deaths of Er and Onan, of the affair of Judah and Tamar, exacted their toll. And success has its snares. Her name was Lady Tenefret. She had connections, and she had Potiphar. But it wasn’t Potiphar she wanted.

Based upon meticulous research, Fivash paints a compelling panorama of Egyptian society, with authentic Egyptian names, clothing, and customs, and draws us deeply into Joseph’s world. You will cheer as he maintains his integrity through prison and through the labyrinth of court intrigue to become ruler under Pharaoh. You will delight in his conquest of the heart of beautiful Asenath. And you will be left with a deeper faith in his God.

The author creates a detailed picture of daily life in Egypt with a cast of nearly 80 vibrant characters. Her narrative, filled with fresh insights into one of the great stories of all time, unlocks the secrets of the culture that cradled the Exodus.

Reading it again

Read this many years ago, and have been wanting to read it again. Started a couple weeks ago and struggle with wanting to read faster vs. savoring each page! Yes, it's pricey, but worth every penny. Few books do I read more than once, but this is one. Political intrigue of the Egyptian court and the other plot twists the author really keeps you on the edge of your seat. Very realistic and believable even though it's an "enhancement" beyond what the Bible shares. Bottom line it's a reminder of the challenges of what Joseph went through and an example of the humble faith he had to accept what God had for his life and live according to His plan, obedient to His will.
