    This work is clearly the result of years of classroom and academic experience for professor Taylor and she serves as an expert guide through the text of Esther. Each video delves deeply into one chapter of the text leaving no stone unturned. After situating the story in its original historical and cultural context, she discusses how it has been interpreted and applied at various points in history, including both sacred and popular usage. In the process she highlights female characters and female interpreters as well as their significance for the whole church. Each video includes a pastoral message that draws from the whole of Scripture and suggests applications which are both practical and contemporary.
