Espresso with Esther is part of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies, a series of Bible studies for women in compact, workbook format that examine the “life and times” of certain Bible characters and the books of the Bible that pertain to them. Each study is to be read over a four-to-six week period, and study sections are broken down into short, daily segments designed to fit reader’s busy lifestyles.
Understanding that time is precious, the Coffee Cup Bible Studies are patterned in such a convenient way that they can be read during brief windows of opportunity that allow for meditation and study (breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, etc.). Scripture is provided from the NET Bible (New English Translation), making Bible study convenient for occasions when you can’t carry a Bible.
Sandra’s unconventional thought processes regarding Esther are sprinkled throughout the study as she shatters preconceive myths about this legendary character of the Bible. As a result, more emphasis is placed on Esther’s vulnerabilities and the fact that she was a flawed person whom God chose to use for His greater glory.
