Everything can change in an instant...and take a lifetime to unravel. Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer The Grace Card, and never underestimate the power of God's love.

"One Night With The King" chronicles the life of the young Jewish girl, Hadassah, who goes on to become the Biblical Esther, the Queen of Persia, and saves the Jewish nation from annihilation at the hands of its arch enemy while winning the heart of the fiercely handsome King Xerxes. Written by

The book of Esther (on which this film is based) is one of two books in the Bible that does not mention God. The closest it comes is when Mordecai says to Esther, "We will pray for you." The other book is Song of Songs. See more »
The part of Hegai, the Royal Eunuch is played by Tommy 'Tiny' Lister, who has a deep, resonant, basso-profundo voice. Hegai says the same sword that cut his eye in battle took his "manhood." A man castrated as an adult is technically a 'eunuch' and could have such a deep voice. However, eunuchs were more often castrated on purpose before puberty resulting in a higher pitch. See more »

You have a very bad habit.
The palace is no place for children.
You think of me as a child? Well, you are wrong. I am much younger than that!
[lauging and dancing around]
How do they call you?
Curious name. From where you come?
I'm of the wind, whose sound is heard. Yet none know from whence it comes or where it goes.
Well, we gather with in the hour. Try not to blow away before then.

This movie stunk. I mean a real big time stinker. I haven't walked out in a movie in years, but gee-whiz! Right off the bat it white washes the Biblically recorded genocide of the Cannanites and then goes down from there. Peter makes his small appearance (not one of his more memorable roles) as the irritable homicidal prophet Samuel taking King Saul to task for not murdering a pregnant Queen along with the rest of the inhabitants of the kingdom including the Livestock! Then we are transported five hundred years later to Persia and a totally stupid, insipid love story, with all the sex appeal of Ozzie and Harriet! I felt that I needed an insulin shot! I finally had to leave the theater or go into a diabetic coma! I did catch the last half of the Departed next door, now that was a MOVIE!
