The purpose of this dissertation is to illustrate the role of and the interplay between the narrative inquiry and post-colonial feminist readings in biblical interpretation of the book of Esther and its influences on the exegetical studies and its readers. Through the study on the issues concerning the Persian Empire's monarchy, social male chauvinism, and patriarchal family structure faced by Esther we found the following possibilities. First, from the narrative inquiry we can find gender biased ideology and slavery and oppression of women that stem from that. But, we also find that the narrative interpretation of the same passages from the post-colonial feminist perspective may lead up to the liberation of women. By looking at the book of Esther from the post-colonial feminist point of view can help us examine and analyze the injustices women encountered in the Malaysian Chinese churches. In so doing, this dissertation is purport to urge the churches to neither copy the gender injustice from the book of Esther that created by empire and the male hegemony nor create a gender biased ideology with respect to biblical interpretation, teaching and preaching. Churches are urged to change the current male-centered value system, to help women in church become aware of their rights through gender equality, to promote the role and status of the women, and to make a call to church leaders for the reformation of gender injustice in current church system. Hopefully through these actions, we can build a church and eventually a society in Malaysia without the male hegemony, gender inequality and gender injustices.
