Excerpt from The Book of Esther
We sum up in the following conclusions: There is no good reason for doubting the historical truthfulness of the book. That there are many good reasons for accepting that historical truthful ness. Individuals have, at times, questioned its place... in the canon, but the judgment of the church at large has accepted it. Its religious spirit and aim, moreover, are, in a sense, unique. It teaches the continued care and watchfulness of God over his chosen covenant people, even after the dispensation of the pro phets hadceased. It teaches that the protection of God, so far as Judaism is concerned, is thenceforth to be administered by an unseen hand, apart from the ministration of prophets, apart from specific revelations and signs, simply in the ordinary course of his providence. Hence the name of God is not even mentioned. It is meant to convey this lesson primarily to Judaism, as a dis tinct chapter or division of the kingdom of God upon earth.
