From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity. After listening to this book, you will understand how Joseph’s story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us with a great example of humbly obeying God, even when we don’t understand, and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Exchange your doubt for courage this Advent and Christmas season. Learn to accept and glorify God’s will even when circumstances make it difficult to do so.

“I can think of no one more adept at bringing out the beauty and authority of scripture while also shedding light on the Bible’s most controversial teachings than Adam Hamilton.” Jim Wallis, president and founder of Sojourners, praise for the author

Story

An arguably challenging point of view regarding Christmas.

Here is a fascinating departure from the traditional story of Christmas, as it is through the voice of Joseph, depicting many questions and answers heretofore given little attention. After listening to this book, one is left with the example of an everyday person finding it possible to humbly obey God, in spite of lacking understanding, and without challenging his instincts, readily goes with the strength he or she believes God provides. Whether religious or secular, there is a great deal of common sense answers to many of the complexities the average man or woman has to face every day.
