Chosen: A Study of Esther
You're invited to study the Book of Esther.
The setting: A lavish feast in the opulent Persian Empire
The event: a beauty contest
The plot: save a nation from annihilation
God's presence surrounds Esther throughout the entirety of her narrative. While God's name is never stated, you can easily tell how God is working and weaving His plan to fruition through Esther. His presence, even in his seeming absence, is clear.
The same is true for your life: God is always present with you, even when you feel He is absent. Just because God seems hidden does not mean He is absent, but rather, that He is working faithfully behind the scenes. He never abandons His creation, and He works diligently through you to propel His plan forward.
In this eight-week individual study, see that God's presence is ever-abundant in your life, and that God gives you the courage to live fearlessly as Esther did. Learn the historical context of the Book of Esther to enrich your understanding of God's Word. Questions are included in each chapter to allow for reflection on your readings as you work through the study by yourself or discuss your answers in a group women's Bible study.
