    But like Shakespeare's plays, every page beer's testimony to its author. We seem much more attuned to critical moments of crisis than to ongoing issues that threat our lives or quality of living. It is the only book in the Bible that doesn't mention God's name. Her story is recorded in the Old Testament book bearing her name. We get their unique perspectives on the events that occurred in the transformation of a Jewish orphan into Queen of Persia.

    In an attempt to Haman goes home with his head covered after giving honor to Mordecai, and his head is covered before he is hung. This is referenced in Esther The Book of Esther takes a behind the scenes look into the lives and minds of the main characters. Many even became Jews out of fear.

    What seems most reasonable is a combination of: 1 her having responsibilities at the feast she was giving for the women; and 2 her not wanting to appear before a drunk king and a drunk crowd. We have seen other Esther movies and this movie is one of the better ones! It seems to be symbolic of those who cannot see God at a certain time in their life - yet someone has written, ILL.

Why did Esther not just come out and accuse Haman instead of doing the two banquets? In the past we have had so many people who have been initially introduced to our church through the Christmas program. Why did Mordecai refuse to bow to Haman, and why does Haman react so out of proportion?

Tomorrow night we have the beginning of the Living Christmas Tree presentations. Worthy of Confidence by Christopher Harbin Why does David's confrontation with Goliath stand out in our minds as a supreme example of faith, yet Paul's ministry among the Corinthians does not?
