Esther, the Jewish queen, is immortalized in the Bible book bearing her name. This historical story imagines how a Jewish orphan, adopted by her cousin Mordecai, successfully and in God’s wisdom helped Esther become queen, thus saving the Jewish people.
This story is one of my favorites in the Bible and Brainard brought it to life. Now when I go back to the Bible I will see Esther in a three-dimensional way, in living color. She had fears, excitement, and troubles. But through it all, with the aid of Mordecai, she came to a place in history for such a time as this.
It showed how, if God’s people listen to the Eternal voice and are obedient, the Glory of God would be seen. I witnessed that within the book, Esther’s Song. I loved how the author added in great detail the background for the story. When I finished the last words of the book, I wanted more. I look forward to heaven even greater, awaiting more of Esther’s story.
I recommend this book.
