Product description

Review

'Meg Warner moves us on from Lloyd Webber's 'Poor, poor Joseph' to meet a man trafficked and traumatised, by no means perfect, but for us a lesson in building resilience. Tracing her own story, which includes being limited by illness and finding work in a new country, Warner draws on biblical scholarship and research into trauma and resilience.


'This book is written in both a down to earth and intelligent way, so that we weave our story, the author's and Joseph's with contemporary issues, and consider how we have come through difficulties and can become more resilient in the future.'', Justine Allain Chapman, Archdeacon of Boston, England, and author of The Resilient Disciple: ''Meg Warner brings together a depth of biblical knowledge and a strong understanding of contemporary research on the impact of trauma on individuals and communities in her exploration of the story of the well-known biblical character of Joseph. She invites her readers into a deeper understanding of the way that the trauma of the ancient Israelite community is reflected in the Bible, and shows how this story continues to resonate with our own experiences of pain and suffering.

'Along the way she shares her own story and invites us into a reflection of our own experiences, taking her reader on a journey of exploration without falling into the trap of prescribing the outcome. The book is carefully written and astute, full of compassion, hope and sensitivity. A great read for individuals wanting to explore issues of trauma and its impact, this book is also an invaluable resource for groups.'', Liz Boase, Dean of the School of Graduate Research, University of Divinity, Australia, and co-editor of Bible Through the Lens of Trauma: ''This book is electric. Meg Warner has that rare knack of using personal story to bring the biblical story to life. At every step she draws us in, challenging us to allow the biblical story, in turn, to bring us to life. It makes for compulsive reading.'', Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury: ''With characteristic deftness, disarming honesty and exegetical skill, Meg Warner makes the story of Joseph a parable for our lives and our times.'', Sam Wells, Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, London
