P 165 ‘For Just Such a Time as This’: Learning from Esther for Ministry in Difficult Times (2021)


Esther is a book for difficult times. It calls out new things from God’s people, and shows how God is at work shaping and forming us through challenging times.

As people the world over come to terms with multiple uncertainties, Esther reminds us to celebrate and to mourn, to serve the poor, to face into conflict and to surface unhealed problems from the past. This is a book with a great deal to offer ‘for just such a time as this.’
