This week we will be finishing our study of Esther. In the weeks ahead we will be moving in to our Lentin study. Stay tuned for more.
It’s interesting, possibly even intriguing, that of the 66 books we collectively call the Bible, Esther is the only on where God is not explicitly mentioned. Also, no prayer or worship or even a religious festival is mentioned.
You can read a little bit more about this on page 76 of our current study guide, “Genesis to Revelation: Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther”
