It is with great joy I dedicate this volume to our daughter Colleen Dane and our daughters-in-law Debbie Swindoll and Jeni Swindoll. I am confident the Lord will graciously reward them for their loving and faithful commitment to their husbands and their deep and enduring dedication to their children. As He used Esther to make a difference in her times, may He use these ladies of strength and dignity to shape and change the times in which they live.
Everyone loves a transforming story. Rags to riches. Plain to beautiful. Weak to strong. Esther's story is that, and much more. It is a thought-provoking study of God's invisible hand, writing silently across the pages of human history. Perhaps most of all, it is an account of a godly woman with the courage, wisdom, and strength to block an evil plot, overthrow an arrogant killer, and replace with joy in thousands of Jewish homes. Through Esther's courageous struggle to help her people, Swindoll explains the power of divine providence in volume 2 of the best-selling "Great Lives" series.
