Book of Esther Sex Drugs And Violence Rating

Sex Drugs And Violence Rating

R

Esther isn't too graphic, but any book that prominently features a massacre (in this case, both a failed one and a successful one) is obviously going to be something more than PG-13 rated. The Book of Esther excels at violence—75,000 people get killed in the provinces and a guy gets hanged to death on a really big gallows. So, yeah—we're going with a definite R.
