  1. Tom Phillips, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, 
Vice President, Executive Director, Billy Graham Library

    “In his powerful new book, Os Hillman illustrates we are not designed without a purpose, our larger story. Our purpose is not just what we do. Calling and anointing go together. Adversity builds Christlikeness. What will others say when your life is over? Os beautifully and intentionally shows that God develops character in His messengers through waiting, testing and failure. Humility is the most important characteristic. From light to darkness, abuse to praise, isolation to temptation, pain and betrayal lead to maturity as we learn to respond as Jesus did maximizing our leadership as his creation. I heartily endorse it.”

  2. Dr. Lance Wallnau, Lance Learning Group

    “Os Hillman has a unique command of the revelation surrounding Joseph and his life. His mastery is the byproduct of a lifetime of research and personal experience combined with a special anointing to put it all together. Os can help you get accurate on fulfilling the call in your life. I love this book and heartily recommend it to you!”

  3. Dr. Ed Silvoso, Founder, Harvest Evangelism/Transform Our World

    “Os Hillman has produced another excellent book. I found the practical tools and personal anecdotes so encouraging and faith-building. What could be more important than discovering the reason God put us on this earth, and equipping ourselves to fulfill it? This is a must-read for anyone who desires to be an instrument of transformation!”

  4. David and Jason Benham, Authors, Whatever The Cost & Living Among Lions

    “This book is a rare jewel amidst a mountain of books on leadership. Within these pages Os Hillman gives us an in-depth look at leadership from an angle of Scripture like we’ve never seen before. Eye-opening and right on target, this book is a must read for any leader who not only needs a reminder of their purpose within God’s bigger picture but also needs a map on how to get there.”

  5. Ford Taylor, Transformational Leadership/ FSH Consulting Group

    “This book takes so many amazing principles that Os has taught over the years and puts the six stages into a concise reading with stories and insights that the readers will be able to relate in and to their personal lives. Thank you Os. What an encouragement you are to the people in the Kingdom of God.”

  6. Bob Williamson, Founder/Chairman/CEO of the Jesus Alliance

    “Os Hillman has done it again with his informative new book The Joseph Calling. It is one of the most interesting and well written books I’ve been blessed to read in quite some time. He combines personal experience which in some cases was devastating, Holy Scripture, biblical history of mighty men and women called by God and his own spiritual insight to help teach others about the significance of determining one’s purpose and answering the question of why we were born. He also explains in detail how trials and tribulation build character and prepare us for accomplishing the purpose for which God created us. I highly recommend this book and am confident you will learn from it and hopefully be transformed by it.”

  7. Karen Covell, Producer and Founding Director, Hollywood Prayer Network

    “I read in this new book of Os Hillman’s that the core reason God created Os was ‘to articulate and shepherd foundational ideas that lead to transformation.’ Well he has succeeded here. Anyone desiring to live out the purpose God created you for and to understand how your disappointments, hurts and pain fit into that purpose, should read this book. It’s rich with foundational Biblical truths that will lead to transformation!”

Os explains that the true leader is really God. And God takes people through stages that develop and transform them, not just for leadership, but a life of deepest meaning.”

  10. Pat Gelsinger, CEO VMware

    “Os has once again found deep insight from Scripture on that seminal question we each face – what is my purpose – what did God design me for when he brought me onto this earth? The closer we can take ourselves to this call the more vibrant and Spirit led a life you will have. Join Os on that journey.”

  11. Johnny Hunt, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church Woodstock, Georgia

    “In this book The Joseph Calling: How to understand, navigate and fulfill your purpose, Os Hillman gives us a solid biblical understanding of our process with the Lord. The fact that God has to work in us before we can manifest His Kingdom and fruit, is His wisdom and a quality assurance mark type of thing… Read the book, be inspired and be a part of God’s plan for restoration as a wonderful foretaste of a coming future…”

  15. Dan Miller, author and coach 48

    “In today’s world most of us aren’t worried about having food to eat or a place to sleep. But what we are seeking is a sense of purpose. We want to know why we are here on earth. This book reminds us there is a ready guidebook that has shown story after story of how God uses real life experiences to prepare us – and to reveal to us our own ‘Joseph Calling.’ Recognizing these 6 Stages in your own life will peal back the mystique and let you know with confidence why you were born.”
