1 in stock (can be backordered)

The Book of Esther takes us to the heart of destiny moments: a beautiful but unlikely queen evolves into a Jewish leader.

NOTE: This resource is written from an orthodox Jewish perspective. The reader should read with discernment. DPH believes that students of the scripture will benefit from the insights provided by Jewish writers even when those writers take positions that may be different than the Christian approach.
