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 Technicolour 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.


Jesus taught us that the key to unlocking the whole Bible is to see it as a book about himself. Every story whispers his name.

"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."

Sinclair B. Ferguson, Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

"Taking care to retell Joseph's story as originally set out by the divine author, this book is a gripping read. But, of course, it is so much more than that. It is very encouraging to read from his real-life drama, how God achieved his purpose by using members of a highly dysfunctional family..This book is easily accessible to someone with little or no biblical knowledge, and is also stimulating to others who have travelled this way many times before."
