This book is offered to the Christian public in the hope that it may find favour, and be of interest and use to all who love to hear again the stories that fascinated their earliest years, as they were, perhaps, first told by sainted lips, now forever silent. To the casual reader the story of Joseph’s wrongs, and of his rise from the pit to vice-regal power, is simply interesting for its archaic simplicity and the insight into the past which it affords. But to the man on whose heart the cross is carved in loving memory there is a far deeper interest. It is Calvary in miniature.
