What a great book!!! Very true and faithful to the scriptures. I've never felt such sympathy towards Bathsheba before. Her whole life was very sad, and Francine Rivers allowed you to see all the pain of the consequence she had to endure because of her sin. It was so touching and moving! And the book was also faithful to the Scriptures, which is a wonderful thing! I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to read a good book! Hey, if you do not like to read... well, I still think you will like this book! :-) Francine Rivers, if you are reading this review, bravo!! :-) You did a great job on this book!!!!! I enjoyed it very, VERY much!!!! And to the rest of you guys: Buy it NOW!!!!
The author has done her research. She does more than enlighten the reader on an account of Biblical happenings. The story touches us where we live even though it took place in another era of history. It challenges the reader to a deeper walk with the Lord.
This is a must read for every individual of about 12 years or older. It vividly shows the earthly consequences of sin, even sin that has been forgiven by God. A few moments stolen moments that you thought you got away with can change countless lives forever.
Bummer.... This is the 2nd of the series I've read. Wonderfully written without a doubt but it seemed to me that POP culture crept in as we were set up to see Bathsheba as a "victim of love." I found the slant toward Bathsheba a bit troubling.
I challenge you to read this book in more than two days! You won't be able to put it down! God's grace is portrayed in a unique way, through the eyes of Bathsheba. Keep tissues handy for the ending of the book.
