Publishers Description
The story of Esther is one of the most dramatic examples of deliverance we find in the Bible. Now, respected author Larry Christenson takes readers through this powerful illustration of intercessory prayer and into effective intercession in the twenty-first century. Today, no less than in Esther's day, the power of evil is at work to intrude in our lives and destroy God's people. Christenson unpacks the story of the Jews' deliverance in Persia--through the ministry of a young queen willing to risk her life--and shows readers how to present themselves before the awesome sovereignty of God and pattern a strategy after the mantle of Esther for confronting evil. Anyone who wants to learn how to intercede for others will cherish this insightful and powerful book.

For such a time as this  Jan 21, 2010
Until I picked up Larry Christenson's book, 'The Mantle of Esther', I had never truly paid much attention to this bible story. I have often quoted Mordecai's famous words to Esther, " And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14b) but never truly appreciated what Larry Christenson does in this book as the title states 'discovering the Power of Intercession'. He takes you to the set of this ancient story and takes you on a journey that not only allows you to discover what intercession is but leaves you desiring to experience it in your personal life. I absolutely love it because it reminded me of watching ancient movies as a little girl and how the characters gripped your attention until you felt a sense of familiarity with the setting of the story. The author makes the book of Esther come alive. Instead of reading an old testament book, you're reading the story of Esther and he grips your attention as the story unfolds and yet teaching fundamental principles on the power of intercessory prayer.

I was so overwhelmed with the character of Esther that I cried and prayed along side her as she moved from event to event and as the reality of my own reality and circumstances flashed before my eyes. Esther's predicament felt so real to me and I learned that there is no other way to come to God. "In utter dependence, she presents herself before the king, and there she discovers the awesome power of intercession."

Unlike any bible study you have ever attended, Larry Christenson walks you through the book of Esther and uses the events of this book to literally open your eyes to the labor of prayer."A spirituality that gets ensnared by sweet feelings, losing touch with the cross, has relinquished its identity."

Larry Christenson teaches on the different characters in the book of Esther and how they are types in relation to God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit and to see how the characters interact in this story and how he brings the truth of prayer to light. "Like a many-faceted diamond, the story of Esther reflects truth of intercessory prayer, but it is not itself the source of the teaching..the truth itself comes from the whole Scripture." A must read for all who desire to be acquinted with the work of prayer.

How to ruin a good thing.  Nov 1, 2009
I was very disappointed in this book. Christenson sets out to deal metaphorically with the story of Esther (a concubine and a Jewess) interceding with Persian King Ahasuerus on behalf of the Jewish people. This sounded as if it might be fascinating, but soon the concept of metaphor got twisted into what Christenson calls "typology," and every person or thing in the story got assigned a "type" in what turned out to be a very fundamentalistic manner. By page 33 he was asserting that, although what happens in the story is that the King, thoroughly enebriated, summons Esther for sex, this is a typology for God calling someone to the ministry of reconciliation. More examples of shoving square pegs into round holes, in total denial of their failure to fit, fill the pages. It was no surprise to discover that Christenson is a self-described charismatic. Disappointment turned to despair as he continued to squeeze broad and deep elemental truths into his very narrow theological straightjacket.
Inspiring  Jul 28, 2009
I read about this book in [...] Christianity and knew it was a winner. It's more than that. It is a thoughful and inspiring book that will help me for years to come in my Ministry of Intercesion. Wholeheartly recommended.
