The book of Esther is one of only 2 books in the entire Bible named for women. The other is the book of Ruth. Esther contains the story of a beautiful young Jewess who risked her life to serve God and save her people. There are many themes in the book of Esther. We clearly see: God's interaction with man's will. God’s hatred of racial prejudice and God’s power to give wisdom and help in times of danger. But there are two overriding themes: God’s Sovereignty and God’s Deliverance.
King Xerxes I, threw a lavish party and called for his queen, Vashti, eager to flaunt her beauty to his guests. But the queen refused to appear before Xerxes. Filled with anger, he deposed Queen Vashti, forever removing her from his presence. To find his new queen, Xerxes hosted a royal beauty pageant and Esther was chosen for the throne.
Her cousin Mordecai became a minor official in the Persian government of Susa. Soon after, Mordecai uncovered a plot to assassinate the king. He told Esther about the conspiracy, and she reported it to Xerxes, giving credit to Mordecai. However, a high official Haman, who hated the Jews got the king to agree to kill all the Jews. Esther bravely revealed that she was a Jew getting the king to reverse his decision, exposing Haman and saving her countrymen.
