At the beginning of the 21st century women and men find themselves in a world which seems to be �post� everything � post-Christian, post-modern, post-evangelical and even post-feminist.
How should Christians react? Is it possible to find belief in the middle of all the topsy turvy values?
The Bible tells us of a secular society in which the concept of God as we know it was unknown. Esther and Mordecai lived, loved, had faith and took courage in a godless secular empire.
We find a feminist icon, Queen Vashti, who stood up to a male dominated regime to the extent that a law had to be passed against her for fear that other women would do the same.
Esther, by comparison, is a post-feminist icon. She did not fight the patriarchal system or attempt to win rights for women. Instead she worked within a corrupt and debauched society by personal influence � never losing her vision of God or a sense of humility.
The challenge of this book is that you might prefer Vashti to Esther, the challenge of the Christian faith is that God�s ways are not necessarily our ways.
Includes bible study questions to help group study in a fresh and challenging way.
