Audible Editor Reviews

The book of Esther is one of the only two books in the Bible named for a woman. It tells the story of a Jewish woman who risks her life to serve God and her people. It also explains the origin of Purim to the Jewish people. Thematically, this book confirms God's sovereignty and his resulting ability to save his children. Dr. Bill Creasy's analysis of this text includes quotations, historical background, and modern analogies. His lecture is accessible but in-depth. With confident delivery and skilled pacing, Dr. Creasy proves to be an exceptional lecturer. Meanwhile, he doesn't mind getting his hands dirty with the nitty-gritty of Esther's story. Thanks to Dr. Creasy's friendly tone, this talk is quite charming.

Publisher's Summary

Ezra and Nehemiah tell the story of those who return to Judah to rebuild the temple and Jerusalem. In fact, little more than 40,000 people return, only about 10% of the Jewish population in the Persian Empire. Esther tells the story of the 90% who remain behind. This is a fabulous story - and Dr. Creasy tells us the "X-rated" version!

    "Best Bible Study"

    I often look to Dr Creasy's Bible studies to dig into geopolitical, linguistic, historical and cultural meanings that are lacking in other studies. This helps me ground my exegesis in its broad context. One example of Dr Creasy's exegesis is the pivotal verse 5:4 in which he explains the first letter of the Hebrew words spell "YHWH", a subtle acknowledgement of God's presence in the shadows of the story. But a less well-explained is his interpretation of 1:11 of "wearing *only* the royal crown". I have heard this interpretation before, but don't see that the text supports it. If it's more obvious in the Hebrew, it needs to be highlighted. Overall however, I appreciate the details and explanations offered by Dr Creasy.

    "Great lecture series!"

    This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
