Publisher's Summary

Joseph's pit came in the form of a cistern. Yours came in the form of a diagnosis, a foster home, or a traumatic injury. Joseph was thrown into a hole and despised. And you? Thrown into an unemployment line and forgotten, into a divorce and betrayed, into a bed and abused. The pit. Life is reduced to one quest: to get out and never get hurt again. Not simply done. Pits have no easy exit. Joseph's story got worse before it got better. Abandonment led to enslavement, entrapment, and imprisonment. He was sucker-punched. Sold out. Mistreated. People made promises only to break them. Offered gifts only to take them. If hurt is a swampland, then Joseph was sentenced to a life of hard labor in the Everglades. Yet he never gave up. Bitterness never staked its claim. Anger never metastasized into hatred. His heart never hardened; resolve never vanished. He not only survived; he thrived. By the end of his life, Joseph was the second most powerful man of his generation. His life offers this lesson: in God's hands, intended evil becomes ultimate good. Joseph would be the first to tell you, life in the pit stinks. Yet, for all its rottenness, doesn't the pit do this much? It forces you to look upward. Someone from up there must come down here and give you a hand. God did for Joseph. And at the right time, in the right way, he will do the same for you.

    "I love the story of Joseph"

    I enjoyed this book so much, I love the story of Joseph in the Bible. I saw the story being taught by Max on TV twice now and i was engaged to hear what he had to say so I just had to purchase it. It was just what I needed to hear.

    It's creative how he blinds the stories in the Bible and everyday people and ensures your story is not left out. A perfect encouragement for hope of great things that can come out of your own pain.

    Story
    "Getting Beyond Church - Making it Real"

    This book was very much worth making a review. I read a lot of Christian material but this was my first Max Lucado book. I have heard of him and some of his material but this was the first full book. He tackles what is a very tough issue in a very biblical way. If you know the Lord and you are dealing with something very painful I highly recommend this book. Even if you aren't (at the moment) it is a great resource to go deeper with who our Father in heaven is, what he did for us thru His son Jesus Christ, who we are and how he wants us to know ourselves and him. I will listen to this again for sure.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I listened to this book straight through a couple times because I'm going through a difficult time right now. Max's writing is very encouraging. If you're unfamiliar with Max Lucado, this book is a great place to start.


    Any additional comments?

    Wayne Shepherd is a superb narrator. I enjoyed listening to his soft, encouraging voice.

    Story
    "Finding the courage to keep going."
    What made the experience of listening to You'll Get Through This the most enjoyable?

    Hearing that trials may come but there is hope and God will bring you through. Just like God was with so many other's who wen through trials like we do and others who failed throughout the bible and God is still faithful to forgive and rescue. We may not understand why the circumstances of our lives are in such turmoil, but we can rely on the one who does! We will get through this and we know that the infinite will reach own and touch the finite and we will make it through to the Glory of God! AMEN!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The stories of Joseph, Jesus, King David, etc....each one waiting 20, 30 or more years to see the start of their ministry or the victory and deliverance God had for them, including God's own son. He waited 33 years to start His earthly ministry. Only in His death was the fulfillment of God's most gracious gift of all to man. Salvation fulfilled. Just because we are waiting doesn't mean that we are not in God's will.


    What about Wayne Shepherd’s performance did you like?

    He has a calming and clear way of reading. Smooth transitions and appropriate inflections that made it flow instead of choppy. Also giving the listener the ability to decide for themselves what was important to terms of what has important to them instead of feeling like you were being preached at I was able to flow along with the story, stopping where I wanted to and allowing the message to inspire my own understanding and speak specifically to the issues in my own life. Ability to identify where my life reflected those being represented and hearing the messages that were relevant to my own life without being distracted by the reader's own idea of what was important.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I would say that the most poignant moment for me was when I realized that every trial in my life that I have experienced and was afraid that the pressure and stress would kill me, and then it would get to the point where I was upset that I didn't die, were not in vain. God was able to take each one and I not only did I survive but I was able to move forward stronger and wiser than before. I realized the more I depend on God, doesn't make me weak as some would say from a worldly perspective, but actually is wise because His strength is the most evident when it replaces my weakness. Just like Joseph, my trials may seem long and wearisome, GOD is still in control and working it out for my good.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are struggling with not just one trial, but one after another, and growing weary of the battle, trust the God who is able to not only deliver and restore you but actually able to bless you way beyond what you could ask or think. Thank God for righteous servants like Pastor Max Lucado, who are willing and faithful to share the messages that the Holy Spirit inspires to help encourage the international family of Christ believers navigating this world with all it's ups and downs. Reading this book will bless your life.

    Story
    "If you are experiencing or have recently experienced a great tragedy, you may want to look elsewhere."

    When I'm going through difficult times Max Lucado's books usually provide solace, comfort, hope, and encouragement, but not this time. Although, his chosen scriptures (i.e. "You are God's child, He will use this for good ...") encourage and his mantra of, "You'll get though this. It won't be easy, it won't be painless, but you'll get through this." are helpful, the overall philosophy of this book is a bit....well depressing. Yes, in deep, deep sorrow and tragedy we hope something good will come from it, so that out suffering or the suffering of a loved one is not meaningless. Yet, He seems to be saying either God deliberately unleashes difficulties on us or allows these difficulties to overtake us because it will bring God glory or it will bring good to others. 0n one hand God sorrows at our pain but on the other hand God is glorified or others benefit from our pain? Perhaps I read it too close to a devastating tragedy but I did not find comfort in the message that God would sacrifice my, or anyone else's, well being or allow my, or anyone else's, well being be undermined to bring glory to himself and/or happiness to others?

    Maybe down the road I will feel differently.

    "In the nick of time..."

    Max Lucado hit the nail on the head again! This was an encouraging book during a difficult time for me. The Bible verses and example of Joseph's struggle and triumph gave me hope.

    The storyteller for this audio book did a good job, but I still wanted Max to be the voice for his audiobook. Max does a great job on his devotionals for Upwords.

    Overall, this book is worth the listen or read. Max Lucado does a great job relating to his audience.

    "Another Home Run by Max Lucado"

    Mr. Lucado is my favorite modern day Christian author. His knowledge of scripture and ability to simply and profoundly relate it to every day occurrences helps me gain even more insight into God's plan, will and purposes for my life and events therein. His books are fairly quick and easy reads, full of the whole gamut of emotion, from laughter to sorrow and everything in between. This book is just the same. Thank you Mr. Lucado!

    Sound Biblical truths spoken ever so gently and humbly. Real life anecdotes combined with the story of Joseph provide encouragement and hope for a life that doesn't seem fair right now.
