Sun, Chloe T. Conspicuous in His Absence: Studies in the Song of Songs and Esther. Downers Grove, IL: IVP Academic, 2021.
This book takes on the challenges of divine absence in the Old Testament by exploring the theological connections between Song of Songs and Esther. It demonstrates how both books serve as counter texts to the depiction of God and his work in the rest of the Hebrew Scriptures and thus contribute to a fuller picture of who God is and what it means to know him.
