From the Pit to the Throne; or, Scenes from the Life of Joseph

Author: F. B. Meyer
Publisher: Elliot Stock
Publish Date: 1886

Mr. Meyer has worked out his subject admirably. His earnest, faithful, evangelical ministry is, in God's good providence, a fitting protest against the error which abounds around him. His voice is clear for the gospel; and the people hear it with gladness. The parallel between Joseph and our Lord has often been worked out; but its treasure and instruction have never been exhausted; hence our friend still brings forth from the old mine many nuggets of new gold. The shape of the book is not advantageous for its presentation, for it makes too thin a volume; but apart from this, our notice is undiluted commendation.
