Description:
Few volumes reflect understandings as varied as that of the Book of Esther. Embraced by many but disliked by others, it has constantly engaged its readers in new dialogue. On each reading, one is again drawn to the issues it confronts:
  • family dynamics
  • intergroup relations
  • celebration
  • armed resistance
  • heroism
  • sexual politics
  • the nature of historical truth
  • and much more.


This commentary is framed by the equally fascinating story of the book’s changing interpretations.
