Overview

With the birthday gift of a luxurious coat of many colors, Joseph's stature of being the "special son" is reinforced and causes him to be the envy of his eleven brothers. To the enragement of his brothers, Joseph parades his new coat like that of a king's robes. Consequently, the brothers set a plan in action to cast Joseph into the desert, leaving him estranged from his father, Jacob of Canaan, who loves and cherishes him dearly. Beaten down and sold into slavery, Joseph's faith and strength of will are put to the test. Joseph finds his way to the inner workings of the Egyptian palace, but can he find a way to forgive his envious brothers and reunite with his family? The ancient land of Egypt, the politics of the Nile Delta, and the pride of nomadic Hebrew tribes reveal the fascinating journey of Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors. IT IS I, JOSEPH is the first in Davis's series of Bible personalities.

What People Are Saying

Terence Kelshaw
Have you ever wished that you could fully visualize what lies behind the narrative stories in the Bible? It is especially helpful if one can visualize the background to Old Testament stories, because that helps the narrative to sing in joyful melody.

IT IS I, JOSEPH and BELOVED LEAH are two such examples of the Old Testament singing a new song. Cynthia Davis has researched incredible background of Middle Eastern and Egyptian life to tie together the story of Joseph and the betrayal of Leah. I could never imagine how it was that Potiphar’s wife was able to corner Joseph, but when Mrs. Davis sets it in the context she does, it not only makes it possible, but also brings it marvelously to light. She is to be commended for the immense amount of cultural and historical background she brings to these stories in such a way that the reader can feel almost that they are present with the narrative. She makes the Old Testament sing, indeed.

Neither books are heavy in any sense of being too long or too theological, but it is clear that Cindy Davis is someone who loves the Scriptures and has deeply researched the narratives in both these personalities. Her setting of Joseph as the scribe for Potiphar and her exposing of him to high society life in Egypt and Middle East is incredibly clever and entirely plausible. The dark pits into which Leah descends realizing that she was not the first choice of Jacob, notwithstanding that he has worked seven years for Rachael and ended up with her, is brilliantly constructed in such a way that it becomes an autobiography for every human being as does the story of Joseph, son of Jacob, being one many to save a nation from famine. I commend these two slim paperback volumes to every member of our diocese.
