Esther

Esther began as an Israelite exile and ended up as the Queen.  But even that lofty position did not guarantee her safety and security. God had his plan, however, and through an amazing series of events, Esther was used to prevent an attempted holocaust of her people.  For such a time as this, Esther was placed in the position where her courage and character was used mightily by the Lord. The author of the book is unknown; most believe he was a Jew living in
Persia at the time of these events, perhaps even using the journal of Mordecai as a source.  The date is estimated at 450 B.C.
