The God of Great Reversals: The Gospel in the Book of Esther by Timothy Cain Book Summary:
Have you ever wondered, “If God is real, then why doesn’t He make it more obvious? If He really wants us to believe in Him, then why doesn’t He make it easier for us to see him?” It’s easy to read the Bible and think, “If only God would show up for us today the way He showed up for His people back then.” If you have 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 His people. Ultimately, the reversals in the book of Esther point us forward to the greatest 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 great reversal that is able to bring us hope even when we don’t understand where God is or what He is doing.

Esther the Wonder Pig: Changing the World One Heart at a Time by Steve Jenkins Book Summary:
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERAMAZON BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR Unlikely pig owners Steve and Derek got a whole lot more than they bargained for when the designer micro piglet they adopted turned out to be a full-sized 600-pound sow! This funny, inspirational story shows how families really do come in all shapes and sizes. In the summer of 2012, Steve Jenkins was contacted by an old friend about adopting a micro piglet. Though he knew his partner Derek wouldn't be enthusiastic, he agreed to take the adorable little pig anyway, thinking he could care for her himself. Little did he know, that decision would change his and Derek's lives forever. It turned out there was nothing "micro" about Esther, and Steve and Derek had actually signed on to raise a full-sized commercial pig. Within three years, Tiny Esther grew to a whopping 600 pounds. After some real growing pains and a lot of pig-sized messes, it became clear that Esther needed much more space, so Steve and Derek made another life-changing decision: they bought a farm and opened the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary, where they could care for Esther and other animals in need. Funny, heartwarming, and utterly charming, ESTHER THE WONDER PIG follows Steve and Derek's adventure--from reluctant pig parents to farm-owning advocates for animals.
