This is a story that portrays the impact upon the world and historical significance of the life of Joseph, a man who displayed godly leadership
Longwood, FL (Vocus/PRWEB) April 11, 2011
What is the story told between the lines of any story? That’s what author Ernest E. Holbrook sets out to answer in his novel about the life of Joseph, the biblical character who rose from obscurity to become Pharaoh’s right-hand man in ancient Egypt. In Joseph ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61215-764-1), Holbrook transforms words into mental pictures, bringing to life the tumultuous story of Jacob’s son and tracking his movements from Mesopotamia to the slave auction block to the palace in Egypt.
The ups and downs that follow involve perseverance, false accusations of a jilted beauty queen, prison, impatience, and interpretations of the dreams of Pharaoh’s chief butler and baker—a feat that eventually leads to discerning the puzzling nightmares of the king himself. That accomplishment results in Joseph’s promotion to second-in-command of Egypt. Holbrook’s improvisations add zest to the personal love life and marriage of Joseph, who is a type of the New Testament Savior, Jesus of Nazareth, and is among the most prominent of Old Testament characters.
This is a story that portrays the impact upon the world and historical significance of the life of Joseph, a man who displayed godly leadership,” says Holbrook, who has over 60 years’ experience in pastoring and biblical studies as well as radio ministry, denominational leadership, and inspirational writing. “I hope readers will see in the life of Joseph the rewards of overcoming tremendous hardship and trials by showing love, mercy, and forgiveness for wrongs. A life displaying mercy, forgiveness, and godly character is a life that can positively affect others.”
