We live in a world where readers have a short attention span. This Christian poem about Queen Esther entertains, educates, and inspires in a way that can reach a new audience. Delivered By a Queen presents a familiar and much-loved story in ten short chapters. First, the author covers the historical background and looks at the key characters. Then it's the poem itself, lessons from this young queen, an explanation of why the feast of Purim is celebrated, and reasons why Christians should read this short book. But this book is not limited to Christians only. Whether you are familiar with the story or reading it for the first time, you'll find plenty to keep you turning the pages until the end. Written in easy-to-read language, this gem of a book answers an important question asked: "If life does not make sense, what is your response? It also offers comfort that "God is always present". He directs the events of your life as he did for a young Jewish orphan who lived many years ago in exile in a hostile country. The poem itself spans around 12 pages and is written in a concise fashion. Not a word is wasted. In fact, both young and old can understand it. There's no need to fear a deep dive into history, Jewish customs, or a deep analysis of the Christian poem. The choice of words brings out the meaning loud and clear. Like the script of a well-known drama, there is the main role player, a villain, and a superb supporting cast in the form of the young Esther, her uncle Mordecai, and King Xerxes. And even though he is not mentioned by name, God is ever-present, and his work behind the scene is evident. The themes of Providence, humility, and obedience come through in every chapter. What I liked about Delivered by a Queen is the refreshing way a well-known story is retold. It's also evident the author has done extensive research. She provides background to the main role players, the customs of the day, and the reasons why the feast of Purim is an important part of Jewish history. Do you need a different look at a well-known historical event in the Bible? Or are you a newbie who prefers a condensed version of Esther's life story? Either way, this book provides all you need for a satisfying reading experience.
