Item description for Esther: Woman Of Strength & Dignity (Great Lives) by Charles R. Swindoll...
Overview Dr. Swindoll delves into the real-life story of Queen Esther, showing how the qualities that empowered her godly life are available for every Christian.
Everyone loves a transformation story. Rags to riches. Plain to beautiful. Weak to strong. Esther's story is that, but it is much more. It is a thought-provoking study of God's invisible hand writing silently and unseen across the pages of human history. Perhaps most of all, Esther's story is the account of godly attributes like courage, dignity, wisdom, and strength―attributes that blocked an evil plot, overthrew an arrogant killer, and replaced terror with joy in thousands of Jewish homes.
Author Chuck Swindoll interweaves the ancient, real-life story with insight not only into the virtues of Queen Esther, but also into how the qualities that formed and empowered her can be ours. "Esther "is the second volume of Charles Swindoll's best-selling series, which examines great lives from God's Word and reveals the strengths and weaknesses that make God's men and women both great . . . and human. Many of the most beloved biblical heroes were ordinary folks. Shepherds. Fishermen. Servants. Widows. Even harlots and petty thieves. One by one, they changed the course of history.
Swindoll explains that these men and women did not become great in their own strength but were empowered by God when they surrendered their lives to Him. To live such a life that God considers great is within the reach of everyone who submits to Him.

Esther, A Woman of Strength and Dignity Oct 26, 2009
This is the third book in a series by Charles Swindoll that I have read. I found this book to be very inspiring and uplifting. It is the story of a woman, though her humility, grace and strength, with God's help saved her people. It shows once again that God is in control and He uses the most humble people to carry out His plans. He is a God of surprises and we are only to trust and obey Him and He will do amazing things through us.

Ester has long been overlooked-did you know there is no mention of God in this book of the bible or that she was an orphan? Just a great look at how she-and the rest of us live our lives one day at a time with a little help from our friends. But how does it go-If you don't stand for something you stand for nothing. Each one of us stands for something but have we ever HAD to look inside to find just what it is?
Awesome Bible Study! Oct 20, 2008
We are doing this as a Ladies Bible Study at our church and it has been wonderful. Swindoll does an excellent job in this character study, and he does in all of them. It really makes you think about what a difference one person, one woman can make when she stands for what is right and follows Gods leadership.
