When a modern-day girl named Amelia (Lauren Faber) faces a big challenge in her life, her mother (Lori Broadhead) teaches her about the power of fasting by sharing the story of a heroine from the Bible. Esther (Summer Naomi Smart), an orphan raised by a relative named Mordecai (Marvin Payne), is chosen from all the maidens in the land to become queen. While becoming a queen is where most fairy tales end, this is just the beginning of the true story of this courageous woman who must risk her life to save her people from a treacherous plan of the charmingly wicked prince Haman (Jeff Stevens). Through reliving the story of Esther, Amelia gains an understanding of the power of fasting and how it can help her learn courage.

About the Author
A Must Have!
by Jennifer - reviewed on August 08, 2006
This movie is excellent! My children (7, 4 & @) LOVE this movie. The casting for Esther is perfect. She is a great example to my daughter. The most exciting thing about the Liken the Scriptures movies is seeing my children enjoy the stories from the scriptures, sing the songs and even dramatize the actions. My family owns every single one of the Liken the Scriptures movies and they are all wonderful! I highly recommend them! Also, the soundtracks are awesome!
my two year old acts this out with her dolls!

I just wanted to thank all who have made this movie possible and available. My two year old loves Eshter, enacts the story with her dolls and 'sings' the songs. It brings the spirit into our home and lingers as my daughter and I talk about the lessons learned. Thank you.

I loved this DVD. The songs were great! There was one part where Haman gets tough with Esther that I thought was scary but is still a great movie!
A Great Teaching Tool

Broadway Caliber Children's Movie
by Customer - reviewed on September 12, 2008
In my opinion, this is the best of the Liken the Scriptures series. The bible story of Esther is told in an accurate, yet fun way so that children can understand and enjoy the scriptures. The actors are Broadway caliber, with many of them currently on Broadway in New York and Chicago.

With professional talents of Summer Naomi Smart, Dallyn Vail Bayles, this movie is QUALITY. It's also fun to see Marvin Payne as Mordecai. This movie is the best story, and has some of the best music in the Liken series.
