Beloved Bible teacher Ray Stedmans unique three-dimensional view of the book of Esther examines the story from three perspectives: as an historical document of actual events that took place in the life of the Jewish people; as a thrilling narrative of romance and suspense that reads like a gripping novel; and as a parable of profound and practical truth for our everyday Christian lives. The Book of Esther has amazing relevance for the turbulent, troubled times in which we live. Its adventure-filled pages speak to us across the centuries and instruct us in how God wants us to live in the 21st century.
