Product Description

Has God ever seemed distant from issues and events that deeply impact you? Has He really intended for certain things to happen? The book of Esther never mentions God, yet it gives us fascinating insight into his unerring work to rescue his people. 

In this 10-lesson Bible Study, Jane Roach walks us through the book’s compelling historical narrative and helps us to identify and learn from God’s providential activity. Each lesson contains the following sections: Texts, Truth, Hymn, Opening Prayer, Questions for Study and Discussion, Commentary, and Closing Prayer.

See God’s hand in your own circumstances, lean on him, and experience a new life of gratitude, peace, and joy.

Publisher's Description

God sustains and reigns over all his created order. Everything that happens occurs because God wills it according to his purposes, plan, way, and time, and he sometimes calls ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary tasks. The book of Esther gives us a fascinating historical narrative of God’s providential activity amongst a failed attempt to annihilate exiled Jews in the Persian Empire. Jane Roach uses insightful commentary, application questions, testimonies, and hymns to walk readers through the compelling story, introduce characters, and identify God’s providence. As you study the book of Esther, you will be prepared to see God’s hand in your own circumstances, to lean on him with wholehearted trust and worship, and to experience a new life of gratitude, peace, and joy.

Editorial Reviews

"God’s sovereignty and providential care over all things is one of the most important and foundational doctrines of our faith. It is one that anchors us in times of trial. Jane Roach's new study on Esther shows us God’s providence in the life of an unlikely queen. This theologically rich study takes us through the pages of God’s word to see that all God’s purposes come to pass."
“To have a robust and “no-risk” view of providence is essential for spiritual sanity, strength and stamina. Few books of the Bible teach Providence with greater candor than Esther and Jane Roach’s no-nonsense approach, in ten accessible, practical chapters, provides an ideal manner of studying both the book of Esther and its central theme of providence. I foresee personal and group bible studies making this book their choice in the near future, and returning to it again and again. A marvelous aid that will do a great number of people much good.”
Jane Roach's Bible study on Esther is doctrinally rich and spiritually uplifting. This resource will be a tremendous aid to personal worship and devotional study, as well as for small group discussions. Discover God's providence in Esther and you will learn to see God's presence in your own life.
God’s Mysterious Ways offers women a thought-provoking, heart-igniting exploration of God’s quiet but invincible providence displayed in the life of Esther. Jane Roach’s insightful study-and-discussion questions and clear exposition blend serious engagement with the scriptural text with a focus on Christ, our true Rescuer. Contemporary testimonies show what it looks like to live in the confidence that God works all things—both pleasant and painful—together for good to those whom he has called by grace in the gospel. Gather some sisters and work together through this study of Esther. It will move you to worship the Lord in awe at all times, and to rest in his sovereign wisdom and love in times of trial.
"Don't feel badly if you didn't know Esther was in the Bible. It is rarely cited, much less explored, in Christian circles today. But after you read this wonderful Bible study on Esther, you will have one more reason to treasure God's Word. As usual, Jane Roach offers an accessible map: the setting of the book, the role of divine providence, and Esther's place in the history of redemption. Then she weaves exposition with worship, which is after all the goal of this and every other book in the Bible.”
