The Queen You Thought You Knew

The Book of Esther and the holiday of Purim can easily masquerade as child’s play. Theres a villain out to hang Mordechai and murder his countrymen; a king who enjoys drinking; and a beautiful and noble queen. There are assassins, palace intrigue and a climactic battle scene — and a happy ending, to boot. Purim is celebrated with costumes, carnivals, and abundant merriment.

In this ground-breaking book, Rabbi Fohrman invites the reader to look at the Book of Esther with fresh eyes; to join him on a guided adventure through the ancient Biblical text. In so doing, he reveals another Purim story; a richer, deeper narrative more suited perhaps, to the eyes of an adult than to a child. As layers of meaning are gradually revealed, Esther’s hidden story comes alive in a vibrant, unexpected way.
