How to See Esther

Preston Sprinkle has some interesting thoughts here on how we should view the character of Esther. Although, framing the options in terms of harlot or heroine is a bit too strong (as Sprinkle acknowledges), I believe that his analysis is basically correct. One point raised in the post, namely the Jewish canonical placement of Esther next to Daniel, is something I have not thought about before. It is an interesting point.
