"Esther", a bible study by Darlene Schacht is one of her three bible studies in the series. Of her studies, I loved Ruth, but didn't like Philippians at all. Esther was somewhere in between. Esther is the only book in the Bible that does not use the word for God anywhere in it. It is viewed as a Jewish historical story rather than as a religious one. There is a theory that the book of Esther (from the Bible) is not a true story, but rather a parable. If you are a believer in this theory, than this study will fit you perfectly. I am not; I believe that it is a true story, therefore, I found parts of the study a little confusing. I think this study can only really be viewed as good or bad by the individual reader. It picks through the book of Esther and draws similarities from other parts of the bible to verify or further study it. I received this book for free from the author on her Time-Warp Wife Facebook page.
