Joseph was the first man called to serve Jesus in his human nature. In Joseph, the Man Who Raised Jesus, Fr. Gary Caster portrays Joseph through his actions. A father, husband, and laborer, we learn from his humanity at these most basic, human levels. As we see Joseph's personal struggle with faith and his example of living a virtuous life, we can learn from his example how to respond to our own struggles.

Casters book provides a unique, in-depth presentation of Joseph from the perspective of the evangelical counsels and the theological and cardinal virtues. Each section begins with an explanation of what each counsel or virtue means and then shows how Joseph models it for us.
The descriptions of St. Josephs life and character found in this book, while rooted in the Scripture passages that mention him, are chiefly inspired by Jesus, who spent the majority of his life at home with Joseph and Mary. For years, the three of them lived, prayed, celebrated, studied, and shared, all the while uniting their lives more intimately with Gods own. Those years in Nazareth were a real preparation for the foundation upon which Jesus would build his saving ministry. And as much as Joseph and Mary offered Jesus, he offered them an ever-expanding awareness of the God that had changed both their lives. The reciprocity of love that perfectly defines the home in Nazareth is the very pattern for all family lifeand therefore of the Church itself.
Let Fr. Gary Caster introduce you to the man who risked everything to care for Mary and her Son, safeguarding them from harm and cherishing them with a pure and true love. Joseph was a flesh-and-blood testimony of what it means to live according to the Fathers will with ones mind and heart centered on Christ.
