Unmask the story of the megillah , the Book of Esther , with the brilliant and insightful commentary of the Malbim now available in English. His classic question and answer style analysis of the text uncovers fascinating layers of meaning, and adds greater detail to the plot of the Purim story. For example, the distinction between the text's usage of "Queen Vashti" and "Vashti the Queen" indicates a political power struggle between the King and the Queen over the legitimacy of the throne!
