Have you ever found yourself in a pit, emotionally, financially or spiritually? In a way only he can teach, Jamie Buckingham relates the pit experiences of Joseph from the book of Genesis to our own pits of today. Joseph found himself in two very different kinds of pits in his life: once in the desert when he angered his brothers, and again in Egypt, when he was punished for doing the right things in the eyes of God. Jamie shows us that these pits - the pit of correction and the pit of curing - are God's tools for getting our attention for life-lessons He wants us to learn. This book is adapted from a message preached by Jamie Buckingham. A master storyteller and Bible teacher, Jamie has delighted millions around the world both in person and in print. As a distinguished Bible teacher with graduate degrees in English Literature and Theology, Jamie was respected among liturgical, evangelical, and Pentecostal Christians. Jamie was a husband, father, grandfather, and founding pastor of the Tabernacle Church, an interdeminational congregation in Melbourne, Florida, where he served for 25 years, pastoring and discipling followers of Christ. He lived in a rural area on the east coast of Florida on a family compound with his wife, Jackie, surrounded by five married children.
