The Megillah of Esther: "Revelation of That Which Is Hidden"—A Parable

Front Cover
WestBow Press, Nov 9, 2015 - Religion - 240 pages

The biblical tale of Esther is an oft-told and beloved story, but hidden in the story is a mystery! Esther is more than a historical accountit is a beautiful parable.

The characters and events in the story act out for us a revelation of who we are in our inner selvesthe part of us that the mirror on the wall does not reflect. The mystery is solved as the characters, on the parable stage, present a unique revelation of how we work and rule over our kingdom - our soul and spirit residing within a physical body. We also see the intimate reflection of the heart of God as He loves, woos, and works in us to draw us to Himself.
