When you think about Bathsheba, what comes to mind? The fact that she somehow played a part in the temptation of David comes to mind. She is probably a woman that we tend to frown upon.
Bathsheba is probably one of the most misunderstood and misjudged women in the Bible. Angela Hunt has a gift for storytelling. Combined with historical facts and fiction, you will find yourself reconsidering everything you thought about her.
King David forces himself on Bathsheba, a loyal soldier’s wife. The Bible doesn’t have a record of her having been on his rooftop bathing. Her pregnancy then causes the king to murder her husband and add her to his harem as one of his wives. Bathsheba struggles to protect her son while dealing with the dark prophecy and deadly curse on the king’s household.
You won’t want to miss this one. The story of Bathsheba is captivating, beautiful, and honest.
