by Harris Langford
Strength for Dangerous Times describes in a fresh and biblically faithful way the events of the Old Testament book of Esther. In your study, you’ll find a troubled marriage, lost wars, a close family relationship, palace intrigue, murderous plots, lying, and a classic “sting” operation that turned the tables on a lethal adversary. This volume helps you acquire personal strength for such dangerous times as the ones we now confront.
