Product Description

Esther often seems like an anomaly - a book of the Bible that never mentions God or his direct intervention. Yet the book feels closest to many Christians' own experience: few of us have experienced divine intervention, and our world seems just as secular as Esther's. We are tempted to ask, of her world and ours - where is God in all this? If he is real, why doesn't he show himself?

Bryan Gregory shows us how Esther's literary techinques depict God's "absent presence" and "hidden involvement," encouraging us that while God appears uninvolved, he is at work under the surface to accomplish his purposes and deliver his people - ultimately revealing his hidden presence in Christ.

Publisher's Description

Esther often seems like an anomaly—a book of the Bible that never mentions God or his direct intervention. Yet the book feels closest to many Christians’ own experience; few of us have experienced divine intervention, and our world seems just as secular as Esther’s. We are tempted to ask, of her world and ours—where is God in all this? If he is real, why doesn’t he show himself? Bryan Gregory shows us how Esther’s literary techniques depict God’s “absent presence” and “hidden involvement,” encouraging us that while God appears uninvolved, he is at work under the surface to accomplish his purposes and deliver his people—ultimately revealing his hidden presence in Christ.

Editorial Reviews

It is a blessing when scholarly research results in deep insights for practical, everyday faith. Bryan Gregory skillfully weaves together the themes of the book of Esther, the details of her world, real-life challenges (ancient and modern), other Scripture, our own hearts, and the fulfillment of it all in Jesus. You will find real, concrete hope in Christ that calls you to faith and action and that speaks even to despair and life’s darkest moments.
