One of the leading ladies of the Old Testament is celebrated when good battles evil in “The Book of Esther” — the timeless story of Biblical heroism from Pure Flix Entertainment.
When Esther becomes King Xerxes’s queen, her cousin Mordecai and the despicable Haman engage in a dangerous game of intrigue for control of the young Persian King Xerxes (Joel St. James). It’s no secret that Haman plans to get of the Jewish people.
But Haman’s plans include something horrible for Mordecai and his people. It is up to Mordecai’s niece Esther to win the affection of the King, unmask Haman’s treachery and save the Jewish people. Can Esther convince her husband to spare her people—even though she may be putting her own life at risk? Based upon the Book of Esther, this delightful retelling emphasizes the values of courage, faith and obedience.
