Synopsis

An inspiring story of faith and courage, “Esther” dramatizes the historic role of a young Jewish girl who became Queen of Persia and saved her people from extermination in the Persian kingdom. “Esther” airs on the PAX cable network 11/5/00 at 9-11 PM (ET/PT).

Dove Review

This is the ninth installment in a series of illuminating dramas based on biblical stories. An exquisite Louise Lombard (“The House of Elliot,” “Bodyguards”) heads a strong cast and the producers have consulted biblical scholars representing Catholic, Protestant and Jewish perspectives, to help keep the production true to biblical and historical text. “Esther” is a rarity as it is one of the few biblical accounts that features a woman as the story’s central figure. Like “Jeremiah,” “Solomon” and “Moses,” this production may instill a desire in youngsters to read the Bible.
