The Hidden Hand of God
Any regular attendee at School concerts will have heard countless renditions of ‘Any dream will do’! Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Tim Rices’ musical ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ has certainly brought awareness of Joseph’s name to contemporary society – but has it contributed to our understanding of the historical Joseph, and his role in the Bible’s big picture?
Any glance at the first book of the Bible will show that, in terms of sheer space, the story of Joseph is of some considerable importance.
Although no tribe is named after him, and the Messiah is not descended from him, Joseph nonetheless occupies a crucial role in the Bible’s drama of redemption. Ultimately Joseph’s story is about God’s intention to save, not just Joseph’s family, but bringing through Judah a saviour for the world.
“The story of Joseph is a great symphony on the theme of God’s providence. But a symphony can only be brought to life by a skilled expert who understands and can interpret all the nuances of the music. Enter Liam Goligher and we know the music is in safe hands. In his hands the Joseph Symphony intrigues, delights, and captivates our hearts for God and his ways and fills us with admiration for his wise providence. Here is a book to put melody into the way we live the Christian life.”

“Liam Goligher is a gifted communicator with a passion for God’s Word, including the stories of the Old Testament. This practical, Christ-centered exposition of the Joseph narrative celebrates the good sovereignty of God, who shapes our lives for his service.”
