Book Description:

Inspiring Biblical Wisdom Helps Readers Overcome Dissatisfaction and Discontent
Deep, lasting satisfaction and contentment elude many people. In his accessible book, Giovannetti addresses this contemporary issue by guiding readers through the life of Joseph in the book of Genesis. He answers the question “Is contentment possible?” with a resounding yes. Biblical wisdom and practical advice will help the reader find contentment in God rather than circumstances.
The author teaches at Tozer Theological Seminary and Simpson University as well as pastoring a church of more than 2,500.

My Review:

Happiness is more that circumstantial.  Many people state that if only “I could get that job, I would be happy.”  or “If only I could find a new house, I would be happy.”  When they reach those place, they find that they are no more happy than before, because they based their happiness of their life’s circumstances.  This book uses the story of Joseph in the Bible to show readers what it means to truly be happy.  It is strongly based upon scripture and quotes often from the Bible.  It is one of those books that helps you to make a true life transition after you have read it.  I found the reading easy to understand and it flows well between the scripture quotes and the discussions.  It would be a great book for a Bible study or even a reading group.  I strongly recommend this book to others and it is one that would make a great gift as well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Bethany House Publishers.  I was not obligated to write a positive review.  The opinions in this review are my own.
