Book of Esther (English)
Not only is the Book of Esther a historical account of the potential annihilation of the Jewish people, but also a suspenseful drama with God as its screenwriter and director.

The Book of Esther: A Synopsis
The book of Esther is the final Historical Book in the Old Testament. With the northern kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judah both destroyed, the Jews were captured into exile under the Assyrian and Babylonian Empires. The book of Esther joins Ezra and Nehemiah to account for the fate of the Jews in exile.
Even in defeat and exile, the hand of God never left His people but was always there to keep and to protect. Time and time again, God heard the cries of His suffering children and delivered them in their plight. The book of Esther shines a clear light of hope for God’s people in the midst of darkness and suffering, encouraging us to always trust in God, who never forsakes us and is mighty to save.
