Esther and Her Times

A Study in Divine Providence 

There is hardly any book of the Bible like the book of Esther: aiming to show the work of God’s providence during a terrible time of crisis, for the deliverance of His people. The hand of God is so visible in this book, even while His name is hidden in it. Lowrie’s 1859 treatment of it is rich.

Lowrie keeps before the reader that strikingly unique literary feature of the biblical book of Esther, a writing device known as The Obvious Unmention, which in an ironic sort of way is meant to draw attention to that which is so evidently not spoken of.

Esther is a biblical heroine whose patient faith is a model to young women of all times. For the reader, not only Esther’s piety, but the movement of God in bringing all events to pass for the good of His people comes through in insightful ways.
