Women of the Bible No 17 Esther

"And King Ahasuerus loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in sight, so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen."

Esther II v. 17

This is one of only two books in the Bible named after a woman - the other is Ruth. Curiously, along with The Song Of Solomon, it is also one of only two books in the Bible that does not directly mention God by name, although He is there by implication.

There are plenty of summaries of the book to be found on the internet. Here are links to two. It's a long story, but it's a good one.
