Bruce T. Forbes, a husband, father, Southern California native and lifelong Christian, has completed his new book, “Esther: For Such a Long Time,” a retelling of the biblical story of Queen Esther.
Forbes channels his love for heroes and heroines in an outstanding book, writing: “Turning his love for writing hymns and children’s songs into an even more serious form of poetry, he now dabbles in verse. epic heroic blanks to honor his scripture heroes. and heroines.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Bruce T. Forbes’ new book tells the story of Queen Esther for a modern audience. Queen Esther must use her faith and courage to save the Jewish people from certain death. His faith is the only thing that can save them from destruction and change the course of history. His bravery is an extraordinary example for readers of how to face life’s challenges.
Forbes primarily uses the King James Version of the Bible to breathe new life into this classic story. It also combines story elements from the writings of Josephus and the apocryphal “Additions to Esther”. To add some traditional elements and keep the reader’s attention, Forbes writes this novel in heroic blank verse. This form of poetry follows a very strict metrical pattern and can be very difficult to write, but Forbes far exceeds this challenge.
Readers can purchase “Esther: For So Long a Time” in bookstores around the world, or online at Apple’s iTunes Store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
