Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802851614, Hardcover)THE STORY OF JOSEPH and his coat of many colors is a favorite Bible story-full of dramatic events and enduring lessons in love and faith. Because Joseph is Jacobs favorite son, Josephs brothers are jealous. Their jealousy deepens when Jacob gives Joseph a beautiful coat, and they decide to sell Joseph as a slave for twenty pieces of silver. But God is watching over Joseph, and he survives imprisonment, captures Pharaohs interest and respect, and becomes a powerful ruler in Egypt. Eventually he meets his brothers again, and his family, by the grace of God, is reunited. The tale of eleven brothers who sell their favored brother into slavery is a story about envy, greed, and power, but also a story about love, compassion, and forgiveness. Above all, it is a story about the power and mercy of God as he draws a bitterly divided family back together and in the process changes the course of nations.
