Bestselling author Tommy Tenney expands the extraordinary story of Esther like no novelist has done before. Both a thriller and a Jewish woman's memoir, Hadassah takes readers to ancient Persia (now known as Iraq), into the inner sanctum of the palace and back out into the war zones of battle and political intrigue. This gripping drama of a simple peasant girl chosen over many more qualified candidates to become Esther, Queen of Persia, captures the imagination and fires the emotions of men and women alike.
The youngest of three generations of ministry, Tommy Tenney was born in 1956 and began preaching at age 16. He has spent almost 10 years pastoring and more than 17 years in mobile ministry, traveling to more than 30 nations and most states.
Tommy is a well-known revivalist and has been used to both spark and fuel the fires of revival. He has experienced the miraculous, but more importantly, he knows the value of intimacy with and humility before God. Tommy and his wife Jeannie reside in Louisiana with their three daughters, Tiffany, Natasha, and Andrea.
Mark Andrew Olson is a talented writer whose screenplays and other writing have provided a wealth of experience from which to collaborate with Tenney on this novel. He and his family make their home in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
