Review: Joseph – His Arms Were Made Strong
This is a difficult book to categorize. It is not a commentary and yet it deals with the Joseph saga in its Biblical order (for the most part) and there is much detailed commentary on the text. It is not a fictional account of ‘Joseph and his brothers’, or even a fact/fictional re-telling. There is much filling in and fleshing out of detail not actually spelt out in the Bible; too much for some readers, no doubt. Each chapter has a certain ‘sermon’ feel about it, and with little adaptation many chapters could be delivered as sermons. It may in the end be an attempt to return to an older, even patristic, model of commentary. Significantly, the Fathers are quoted alongside the Reformation and modern critics.
