The Bible had been in existence since time immemorial and it's antecedence had sparked and ignited the world with good things which God himself had done.
In the history of the Bible, we could see how God changed the life of people that showed him reverence and and under his tutelage helped and spearheaded numerous development and miracles in their lives.
Out of the 66 books in the Bible from Genesis to Revelations, God's name was mentioned 4473 times in 3893 verses in the KJV with the exception of the book of Esther.
Esther, the beautiful Jewish wife of the Persian king Ahasuerus (Xerxes I), and her cousin Mordecai persuade the king to retract an order for the general annihilation of Jews throughout the empire.
The massacre had been plotted by the king's chief minister, Haman, and the date decided by casting lots.
The main theme in the book of Esther is that God is working behind the scenes. There was a divine purpose for all the decisions and details documented in this story, yet none of that becomes apparent until the end. God was arranging all these “secular” events to bring about His divine purpose to save the Jews.
Mordecai played an instrumental role in authoring the book of Esther but the name God wasn't mention in all the verses and chapters but that's how it had been written.
