Kindle online The God of Great Reversals author Timothy Cain –

This book really brought the book of Esther to life in a new way for me It starts with the Opening Act and each chapter spurs you on to the next wanting to know what is oing to happen next even though I already knew I loved how this book showed how relevant her life story is for today It weaves the Old Testament and New Testament together beautifully Some The Way Between the Worlds (The View from the Mirror, gems here and there The book of Esther can be hard to trek through in a way that sees God aslorious especially because his name is never mentioned Tim Cain does an excellent job showing God s providential hand behind every chapter of Esther Even so every chapter OF THE BOOK FINDS A BEAUTIFUL CONCLUSION IN THE the book finds a beautiful conclusion in the and work of Christ Read this book While I can t say this always provided excessive insight into Esther it was incredibly Gospel focused In each chapter Cain managed to take a seemingly Godless text explain what was Inverloch Volume 4 going on and then was suddenlyiving you clear God honoring explicit Gospel truth If an unbeliever picked up this book they wouldn t The Good and Beautiful God go away not having been preached the Gospel not once or twice but in every single chapter The book was easy to understand and was a nice accompaniment to reading the book of Esther in scripture though as mentioned is didn t have a ton of depth in terms of biblical commentary though it did occasionally provide backgroundhistory Awesome break down of the story of EstherRecently I ve been studying Esther and I am solad I came across this commentary Pastor Cain breaks down the scripture line by line then shows the big picture of how it fits into our lives today Tim does an incredible job taking a famous story from the Old Testament and applying it to the modern western world Tim shows that

G irl who was taken kidnapped from her home her panicked adoptive father continued to speak Her panicked adoptive father continued to speak her check in on her and ive her COURAGE WISDOM AND PROTECTION TO SAY THAT GOD WAS wisdom and protection To say that God was from the beginning is like saying to a woman who has been rapped God has a plan for this You were meant to The Horse in Celtic Culture get rapped so thatood can happen No one with an inkling of emotional maturity would ever say that No God walked with her used her adoptive father in the way we have all been adopted from God He taught her how to survive and out wit the evil one Despite her circumstances God did not put her in those circumstances God cannot partner with evil He is a ood God A God of redemption and that is what He did He redeemed her Esther did not compromise She survived she used her wisdom and sought and listened to counsel This is how she was able to redeem a nation No one would ever say to a kidnapped person don t compromise if your killed that s ok because you know you did not compromise What was this young orphaned irl to do Run and hide Not an option for her Author you missed this real historical context in this book A book of redemption yes A book teaching us not to compromise no This is a book of sex slavery Every Boys Dream greed evil kidnapping racism and potentialenocide Evil of all evils Yet there is a God who uses ordinary people like us who have experienced horrific events to speak up and stop the atrocities so that it does not continue And we always have our adoptive Father with us to ive us wisdom along the way I did not enjoy this one We are reading it as part of a women s study on Esther and while I will finish the Biblical story I will not be finishing this The author makes far too many assumptions and seems to come at the story of Esther with an agenda in part that Esther is the villain the unfaithful young woman who has abandoned God and embraces the king and his way of life He makes statements that don t seem to have any support from the Biblical text. His people Ultimately the reversals in the book of Esther point us forward to the reatest reversal of all when God used the death of His only Son to bring about the salvation of all his people It is only this A Succession of Bad Days great reversal that is able to bring us hope even when we don’t understand where God is or what He is doi. Ame out this week but I wasiven an advance reader copy by its author my pastor Tim Cain and uickly devoured itAs the subtitle the Gospel in the Book of Esther spells out this is itAs the subtitle the Gospel in the Book of Esther spells out this is walk through the story of Esther What Cain is exceptionally ifted at not just in his writing but also his preaching is pointing to Jesus and the Gospel in every passage "This Is No Easy "is no easy when looking at the book of Esther for it is the only book in the Bible where God is not mentioned even once Yet Cain shows That Not Only Is not only is clearly to be seen in this ripping story but when viewed through the lens of the Gospel the beauty and preeminence of Christ shines with a blinding lightHaving first heard much of the material in this book as a sermon series at our church Kaleo Church of El Cajon I can attest to the life iving truths in this book Having a daughter named Esther and having preached through the book of Esther myself I thought that I didn t have much to learn I was wrong Not only does Tim powerfully and colorfully articulate some truths that I had already seen he skillfully and accessibly illumined how the Gospel changes everything about this story The applications that he draws from the narrative have not only strengthened my soul and walk with the Lord but I attest that I have used them almost on a weekly basis in my counseling as a Navy chaplainThis is a reat book to start the year off with Read it Have your faith encouraged your resolve to walk in a manner worthy of the Gospel encouraged and your heart stoked with delight in your Lord and your God My heart was The Great Passage grieved I appreciate the authors attempt at bringing in application and Jesus from the beginning of his interpretation of the book of Esther But he missed the historical horrific events and sugarcoated what really happened Esther was kidnapped and raped This was not a beauty contest in how we would perceive it today Esther did not compromise by trying to please the king She was a youn. Ve ever felt this way welcome to the book of Esther “The God of Great Reversals” was written to shed light on the Gospel story woven throughout the only book of the Bible that never mentions God’s name In it you will find that even in the darkest days God never stops working to keep His promises and to rescue.
