NextLevel Online: Shouts in Silence - God is in Control: A Study in the Book of Esther

by Beth DeFazio

Beth DeFazio (Biblical Communication & Speech Professor at Ozark Christian College) explores the salvation story of Esther and the Jewish people, as they overcome one man’s plan to destroy them all. Beth shows us that even when God is silent from our story, he is in control. God cares deeply for his people, he listens to their cries for help, and he acts justly.
