    " In a book of the bible where God is never mentioned it is a great look at faith and religion. I love the story of Esther even the history of this woman is not obvious by reading this short story in the old testament. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about their faith. "

    " Gave me more history of Esther...loved this book. "

    " This is the first book I read in this series, even though it is book two. Swindoll does a great job of going through the scripture bit by bit and disecting it as a whole. Did you know God's name is never mentioned in the book of Esther? Did you also understand the rituals of what Esther went through to become a queen? This book made me both angry and happy. Angry because of the king's heart, and happy because of the miracles that God did with the kings heart. Amazing stuff. I also liked how Swindoll writes in this. It is as if he is talking to you. I read,"Did you see that? Did you see what just happened here?" He is talking to us! It is such a great way to write. He also asks us to stop, close the book and look up some verses in your bible, then come back to this page and continue reading. He does an amazing job and I can't recommend this book enough! "

    " What a character! I've come to respect Esther in a much more profound way. After reading and learning about Esther, you can't help but to want to become like her--to have the discernment and patience of knowing when/how to fully trust in God. Great book to read with your small group! "
