She came from a nonreligious Jewish household but rediscovers her faith and Jewish identity. In the process she rescues her people from annihilation.The dominant theme of the book is the providence of God in history and in the lives of people of faith. Another theme stressed by Dr. Davis in this book is the ongoing phenomenon of persecution of Jewish and Christian communities in the world today. There is a resurgence of ethnic hatred and anti-Christian persecution in the wake of the Arab Spring. What is the Church’s response?The book deals with issues of personal morality, marriage relationships, and explores the self-destructiveness of anger and revenge. It proclaims the importance of personal courage and integrity in living out the Christian faith.
