Description Author/Speaker Info
Forward by Dan Cathy, CEO, Chick-Fil-A

Can God actually use prolonged difficulty in our lives for good? Os Hillman says yes! After a seven-year journey filled with adversity in his personal and work life, Os went from the pit of despair to operating an international speaking and teaching organization for workplace leaders that has taken him to more than 20 countries. Like the Joseph of the Bible, Os let God use a long string of personal calamities-what he terms his "Joseph Pit"-to form him for leadership, influence and service.

During this seven-year process, Os learned there is a "Joseph Calling" on the lives of many who experience extraordinary levels of adversity in their lives. He documents this process in The Upside of Adversity. Here, you'll discover a roadmap for navigating through the deep and often treacherous waters of adversity including the seven reasons we experience difficulties, and three ways we respond. You'll discover hope and inspiration in the stories of those who survived and overcame their hard times to rise to positions that revealed God's power and purpose. You'll discover why Os believes God is raising up modern-day Josephs today and what you need to know to successfully fulfill God's purposes in and through your adversity. Like a well-thrown life preserver, Hillman gives you the wisdom you need to see your negative experiences as God-given opportunities to experience God in ways you never thought possible. Do you find yourself in adversity today? Do you have a "Joseph Calling?" It may be the best thing that ever happened to you. Find out why!

Watch a special video testimony on The Upside of Adversity.
You will discover:
  • Why some people are called to extraordinary adversity.
  • Why adversity is sometimes necessary to fulfill your ultimate destiny
  • What the Black Hole is and whether you are in it
  • The four tests Joseph had to pass to fulfill his destiny and why you MUST pass these same tests
  • Why good people suffer
  • Why fear of failure often causes adversity
  • What you can learn from successful people who have faced adversity
  • How to avoid becoming a victim to your circumstances
  • What the upside of adversity really is
  • Whether you have the key attributes of a Joseph Calling upon your life and what this will mean for your future
"This book explains in a wonderful way the dealings of God with those whom he has called be be His endtime-Josephs. Many of us have walked this walk and paid the price. But none of us has been so far able to bring all this together in such a marvelous way as you have done in your book. I pray, that God will bring this book to all called Josephs around the world, so that they may understand much easier as we did God's dealing with them." -Claus Philippin, Boardmember, International Christian Chamber of Commerce, Germany

"Os Hillman has written a classic about Joseph, one of my favorite personalities of history. Joseph's ability to take adversity and turn it into strength is a lesson for all of us. Os weaves in his own story as well, and the end result is a book that will impact your life powerfully."
-Pat Williams, Author and Senior Vice President, Orlando Magic

God Sent May 12, 2016
Reviewer: Maisha Peters from Southfield, MI United States  
This book ministered, taught, reassured, rebuked, encouraged and assisted in bringing the last seven years of my own Joseph experience into manifested purpose. I'm not afraid...I'm not forgotten. Thank you Mr. Hillman!

upside of adversity December 23, 2014
Reviewer: joey alfred from morgan city, LA United States  
Excellent and In perfect relationship to what I was going through. I practically underlined every sentence. Drawed me closer to the lord than ever before. Still going through my Joseph pit but now I understand why. I love the lord for all he's doing in my life making me the man of God I always felt I should be.

One of my favorite books February 27, 2013
Reviewer: Gary Frey from Chagrin Falls, OH United States  
Having been through a similar "pit" experience, this book provided much insight, comfort, and hope to me since I first read it over five years ago. I've given dozens of copies of this away since then and I am currently taking three other men through this book as the launching pad for a Bible study. I highly recommend this book to anyone trying to discern God's will in the midst of troubling circumstances.
