Esther tells the captivating story of a Jewish child who became queen of an empire and saved her people from destruction. It is the only book in the Bible which does not mention God by name. Yet God is present throughout the story—operating providentially, sustaining his people in exile.
Studies on Esther (4 vols.) aims to understand the book of Esther more clearly—its origins, its inclusion in the canon, and its modern place in the interpretation of Scripture. The authors assess the story of Esther, examine its vocabulary, explore its textual traditions, and attempt to understand the history of interpretation of Esther. They also reassess the relationship between Esther and other literature of the time, shedding light on the origins of Esther.
