Finding Favor: The Story of Esther
The premise of the book is to help the readers discover God’s plan for their lives as they seek His presence. The question at hand which is the locus of the book is this — will Esther seek the kingdom or the king? Will she seek the king more than the palace? What can she live with? In the same way, the question comes before us as well, who will we choose . . . the King or the kingdom (our kingdom)?
He concludes the book by listing the "Twelve Protocols of the Palace." These were Esther's secrets of finding favor with the King. It’s an excellent list and one to hold onto.
This was an encouraging book. It was not difficult to read and was engaging as well.
Tenney reminds us that victory comes when we pay close attention to our King even when the enemy stares us in the face. The ultimate question is who will you choose to serve and worship?
Overall, this was a very good book which I recommend.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an impartial and honest review.
