Dating Joseph In the Faiyum

Though I’ve never actually SEEN Joseph, son of Jacob, after hearing his description from the Bible’s Book of Genesis, I would have gladly dated him. In the Faiyum. In the desert. In the rain forest. (I sound like a Dr. Seuss book.) Okay wait! When I titled this post Dating Joseph In the Faiyum, I really meant dating–as in placing him on ...

Quotes by Mesu Andrews  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“But neither the mountains nor the people can rob you of the forgiveness God has given...unless you let them.”
Mesu Andrews, Love Amid The Ashes

“The messages of a prophet...affect the decisions of kings. The decisions of kings determine not just the course of nations but also the life and death of individuals in those countries. If we become so enamored with our own little world that we disregard the nations, we are no better than those who focus on nations and ruthlessly disregard human life.”
Mesu Andrews, Love in a Broken Vessel

“Forgiveness is like an olive tree, mistress. Once it takes root, it will grow, and it’s hard to kill.”
Mesu Andrews, Love Amid the Ashes

Mesu It's good, but I had to read it in short spurts. Very troubling images conquered by God's continuous healing. It's raw but excellent.


Miralee This is the next book on my list to read. I've heard very good things about it and plan on blogging about it, as well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
