God is in fact mentioned in Esther. Unfortunatley, most people tend to miss Him throughout the entire text of the book.
Since it is in the Canon, it is inspired (first clue). The name of God need not be mentioned, because the purpose of the book was the show the Sovereignty of God. We should be able to see Him working in the hearts and minds of His people. Does anyone actually think that just the works of man were capable of bring the people through the trial they were about to go through? God's fingerprints are all through the book of Esther.
Just curious why people don't bring this up with the Song of Solomon.
