JOSEPH: THE OTHER FATHER
by KATHERYN MADDOX HADDAD

Katheryn Maddox Haddad
Katheryn Maddox Haddad, author of 66 books, was born in the cold north but moved to Arizona where she doesn’t have to shovel sunshine.  She basks in 100-degree weather and enjoys palm trees, cacti, and her computer with the letters worn off.  With a BA degree in English and Bible, every morning she sends out an inspirational thought to some 30,000 worldwide. She spends half her day writing and the other half teaching English using the Bible as a textbook to Muslims around the world.  She has taught some 6000 Muslims and has converts to Christianity in hiding in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Uzbekistan, and Somalia, Jordan, Palestine.  “They are my heroes,” she says.

Welcome, Katheryn. Please tell us a little about your novel, Joseph: The Other Father.
Intrepid Men of God Series
Book 4, JOSEPH: THE OTHER FATHER

Imagine being told by God to guard His Son in a violent world until he is grown. 

How does Joseph choose a city in strange Egypt to hide 2-year-old Jesus from Herod’s spies? Does he dare take 4-year-old Jesus to the temple where Herod’s son slaughters thousands?

How can Joseph protect Jesus with all the skirmishes and killing on roads everywhere by those vying to take over as king?

In what ways does Joseph handle the persecution in Nazareth by people who could count and knew Mary was pregnant before marrying Joseph?

What does Joseph do with Jesus in Nazareth, just three miles from Sepphoris, hotbed of zealot protesters, when Rome burns the city?

How does Joseph teach Jesus to be a skilled carpenter in sometimes dangerous situations, and avoid being mauled in the mountains when they cut trees for lumber? 

How many times, when Jesus was in danger did Joseph cry out, “God, help me protect our Son!”?

(NOTE: A year before Jesus’ death when he was rejected in Nazareth, they said, “Isn’t this the son of the carpenter?” In present tense.)
