As his father’s favorite son, Joseph enjoys a charmed life. However, the extra attention drives his older brothers to unite in a conspiracy that thrusts Joseph down a dark path where he’s left for dead, then sold into slavery. Alone in a new country, the young dreamer must decide if he can continue to trust the God of his father while surrounded by false idols, temptations, betrayal, and other struggles.
His journey leads him further from his father and his brothers. Will they ever be reunited, and if so, can Joseph forgive them for what they’ve done?
Find out in … “The Joseph Perspective.”
Each chapter shares a separate perspective of the biblical story as told by the individuals themselves; the dreamer, the jealous brothers, a forgetful Butler, the Pharoah of Egypt and more. This story challenges you to trust God no matter the trial or tribulation you find yourself in and see the bigger picture He has planned for you.

Sarah Groben’s an LAPD Homicide Detective and a Pastor’s wife. But she’s got six murders she hopes to solve by Sunday. Members of a fledgling group for 10-40 transplants seeking Christianity are being killed. A Muslim charity interested in better relations with Americans seems to be connected by the death of a former financial manager. Family members of the victims might also end up in the crosshairs if Sarah is right about a “Persecutor for Hire.”
Sarah’s partner is down with the flu and her husband Don seems like a tailor-made substitute with his knowledge of Middle eastern languages and cultures. But the case keeps getting more complicated by the minute, and Sarah and Don might not be able to crack it before the killing starts again.
This work of fiction was inspired by a true story told at a Voice of the Martyrs conference. Please pray for the persecuted. There is no connection between this work (or this author) and Voice of the Martyrs.
