Beach Reads—Esther: In a Messy World
This summer’s Beach Reads series is about the events that are described in the Old Testament book of Esther. The main theme of the book is “ironic reversal.” The expected outcome is always reversed.

In this second of the series, we explore the messy world in which Esther lives.
