MacArthur Bible Studies: God’s Presence During Hardship (Study in Daniel & Esther)
in Daniel and Esther
you endured long periods of loneliness or suffering? Have you ever felt that
God had abandoned you? If so, you are not alone—many of God’s people down
through the ages have been called to endure periods of hardship. Their lives were
not easy, but even in the midst of tremendous trials these men and women
discovered that God had not abandoned them—and that He was still actively
leading the events of their lives.
Presence During Hardship takes
an in-depth look at the time of Israel’s exile, beginning with Daniel being
carried off to Babylon and continuing through the time of Esther.
Studies include close-ups of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar, and others, as well as
careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as “Standing Boldly for God”
and “God’s Sovereign Hand.”

on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Old Testament
