‘This book is electric. Meg Warner has that rare knack of using personal story to bring the biblical story to life. . . It makes for compulsive reading.’
Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury

You may think you know the story of Joseph, but this book will make you think again! It invites you to think deeply about Joseph’s character and how he responds to the traumatic events that threaten to overwhelm him. Lacing her commentary with telling anecdotes from her own life story, Meg Warner shows how a deeper understanding of Joseph’s story can help you develop the vital quality of resilience: the will and the strength to endure life’s hardships and rise above the effects of trauma whenever it may strike.

‘With characteristic deftness, disarming honesty and exegetical skill, Meg Warner makes the story of Joseph a parable for our lives and times.’
Sam Wells, Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London

‘A great read for individuals, this book is also an invaluable resource for groups.’
Liz Boase, University of Divinity, Australia
