Aka Esther. The name of the Babylonian goddess of sweet sweet love. Coincidence? Hmmm.
What would be a good tagline for the book of Esther, this section of Scripture with disturbing Harlequin-romance-novel undertones?
"Courageous-but-humble Hebrew girl saves her threatened people!"
"Sexy schemer makes good, brings relatives along for the ride!"
Think about it, people.
