Life of Favor
A Family Therapist Examines the Story of Joseph and His Brothers
Messianic Jewish Pub & Res Llc
Favor is an inherent part of God s reality as Father, and properly understood, is a source of blessing to those who want to know him. The story of Jacob s sons points to a life of favor that can make a difference in our lives today. This is not a how-to book with easy steps to overcome depression, anxiety and addictions which are sweeping through our culture. Instead, it s a visionary book that looks deeply into this amazing story and helps us reimagine our own stories. Reading the ancient story of Joseph and his brothers from a family-dynamics perspective provides rich insights into our own identity and relationships in the twenty-first century.
