Customer Reviews for Thomas Nelson Esther: A Woman of Strength & Dignity

Thomas Nelson Esther: A Woman of Strength & Dignity

Everyone has a transformation story. Rags to riches. Plain to beautiful. Weak to strong. Esther's story is that, but it is much more. It is a thought-provoking study of God's individual hand, writing silently and unseen across the pages of human history. Perhaps most of all, Esther's story is the account of godly attributes like courage, dignity, wisdom, and strength - attributes that blocked an evil plot, overthrew an arrogant killer and replaced terror with joy in thousands of Jewish homes.Author Chuck Swindoll interweaves an ancient, real-life story with insight not only into the virtues of Queen Esther, but into how the qualities that formed her and empowered her can be ours. 224 pages, softcover from Thomas Nelson.

This book gave me great insight into the book of Esther. It showed me that is was just not a book about the first (and only) beauty pagent menetioned in the bible. It revealed God's presense and grace to a people who had strayed from God and on how He turned things around even though He is not mentioned in the book. It showed how an orphan girl could become a queen while an very predjudical man (similiar to Hitler) would be killed on the very tool he built for another. It also showed how much God protects and loves the Jewish people - inspite of themselves.
