The writings of Ezra and Nehemiah tell us of the return of the Jews to Israel.  But meanwhile, back at the ranch in Persia, God is at work as well, and a Jewish woman named Esther is front and center in this story.  The book of Esther is unique because nowhere in the text is the name of God ever used…not once. The story is an intrigue of persecution, conflict, a vicious enemy, twists and turns, and vindication. Yet, despite the seeming absence of God, He is everywhere in Esther’s story. The same is true in our story today…even when God may seem hard to find.
