Favor is an inherent part of God’s reality as Father, and properly understood, is a source of blessing to those who want to know him. The story of Jacob’s sons points to a life of favor that can make a difference in our lives today. This is not a how-to book with easy steps to overcome depression, anxiety and addictions which are sweeping through our culture. Instead, it’s a visionary book that looks deeply into this amazing story and helps us reimagine our own stories. Reading the ancient story of Joseph and his brothers from a family-dynamics perspective provides rich insights into our own identity and relationships in the twenty-first century.

Filled with high ethical insights, and breathing the warmth and wisdom that characterizes Russ’s life and writings.—Daniel Juster, first president, UMJC, and founder, Tikkun International

Rabbi Resnik is one of Messianic Judaism's wise sages. In his reflective new volume he takes a thoughtful look at the ancient book and applies it to modern circumstances—you'll be the better for the reading.—Dr. Jeffrey Seif, Retired "University Distinguished Professor of Bible and Jewish Studies," Kings University-Houston

Excellent insight—judgments in exegesis are matched by skillful use of counseling principles and creative applications to contemporary situations in life and in the family. I urge students, counselors, pastors and teachers to get a copy, for you will treasure this study and use it for a long time to come.—Walter C. Kaiser, Jr. President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Hamilton, MA
