 Description: Enter into an exotic and fanciful Persian Kingdom complete with a dim-witted King, a defiant queen, an egotistical lieutenant and a loyal uncle. With lavish banquets, extreme beauty treatments and dangerous liaisons at every turn, can the beautiful and courageous Esther avert disaster for her people? All this occurs in a Biblical book where God is never mentioned. Dr. Lisa Wolfe digs deeply and lovingly into this complex story so bring your Purim gragger and your hamantaschen--if you don't know what those are you'll find out in chapter two--and join her for a fascinating study of power, corruption, violence and courage.

Chapters include:
Who's who?
Setting the Stage
The Defiant Queen
From Coronation to Doomsday
The King's Scepter
Uppity Esther?

"We were looking for a study that would cover 7 weeks and this fit our needs well. It was different than any other book of the bible that we have studied…well-received and enjoyed by the group…we held a Purim celebration at the last lesson complete with a horse and crown, noise makers, bridal veils, finger foods (Haman's hats) and sparkling juice." FUN!
