Preview — Bathsheba by Jill Eileen Smith. Bathsheba is a woman who longs for love. With her devout husband away fighting the king's wars for many months at a time, discontent and loneliness dog her steps--and make it frighteningly easy to succumb to King David's charm and attention. Though she immediately regrets her involvement with the powerful king, the pieces are set in motion that will destroy everything she Bathsheba is a woman who longs for love.
Though she immediately regrets her involvement with the powerful king, the pieces are set in motion that will destroy everything she holds dear. Can she find forgiveness at the feet of the Almighty? Or has her sin separated her from God--and David--forever? With a historian's sharp eye for detail and a novelist's creative spirit, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the passionate and emotional story of David's most famous--and infamous--wife. Smith uses her gentle hand to draw out the humanity in her characters, allowing readers to see themselves in the three-dimensional lives and minds of people who are often viewed in starkly moralistic terms.

I approached it with trepidation wondering how Smith would be able to breathe life into the rather scandalous story of David and Bathsheba. Somehow Smith made me get swept away in their story and sad when I finished it. Bathsheba is hands down my favorite of the three featured wives in the trilogy.
Mar 19, Janna Ryan rated it it was amazing. In my opinion Biblical Fiction has to be one of the hardest genres to write in because you are taking something that is fact but there is not a lot of info on and fictionalizing it to bring it to life.
So not only are you researching the ways and habits of the time period but you are researching the people as well. Jill Eileen Smith is a master of this. Her Wives of King David series is fantastic and this last book, Bathsheba, is a catch for me. I wanted to see what she did with this difficul In my opinion Biblical Fiction has to be one of the hardest genres to write in because you are taking something that is fact but there is not a lot of info on and fictionalizing it to bring it to life.
I wanted to see what she did with this difficult story, but I also didn't want to see the series end. I have just turned the last pages and ended it and now sadly put it down.
Jill did not disappoint me at all, she handled a hard story of sin, forgiveness, grace and consequences with incredible insight and diplomacy. She continues to bring David to life as a man with flaws and sin, but with a heart that truly desires to follow God. And though this book focuses on Bathsheba, the journey of his wives is a truly fascinating thing. I plan on making this series required reading for my children as they hit high school because there is value in bringing Biblical characters to life Feb 23, Katie rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Jill has skillfully crafted together a compelling and heart-wrenching book on the well-known story of David and Bathsheba.
Never erring from the truth of the Scriptures, this book explores the thoughts and feelings of what David and Bathsheba might have been experiencing before, during, and after they fell into sin. The last in the Wives of King David series, this is a powerful and thought-provoking book! The characters in Bathsheba were well developed and extremely well written.
I really connect Jill has skillfully crafted together a compelling and heart-wrenching book on the well-known story of David and Bathsheba. I really connected with Bathsheba, David, and even Uriah. I could literally feel and understand his frustration and desperation as every attempt to send Uriah home fell through.
The undercurrent of emotions throughout this book is vivid and powerful. But honestly, I thought it was incredibly clean for the events that took place. When David watched Bathsheba bath from his balcony, nothing explicit was described except that he was filled with desire to have her. When David seduced Bathsheba, it was very minimal. The scene when Nathan confronts him with his act of adultery was powerful. I was pulled into this story from the very first scene, unable to put it down. Before and during, they thought of nothing but their desires and longings.
But almost instantly after the act was committed, feelings of guilt began to fill their hearts and consume them. Jan 21, Jennifer rated it it was ok. I found this novel to be rather dull and monotonous. There was virtually no character development, which was a disappointment as it left David and Bathsheba as two-dimensional characters in a book rather than as historical figures brought to life. However the biggest issue I had with this novel was that it was written as if David and Bathsheba were aware that they were biblical figures living in Old Testament times.

If you think about it, no one ever lived in the past. Washington, Jefferson, John Adams, and their contemporaries didn't walk about saying, "Isn't this fascinating living in the past! Aren't we picturesque in our funny clothes! The difference is it was their present, not ours. I do not feel that it was very realistic that David and Bathsheba lived their daily life in such a religious context. David was a ruler of a kingdom during turbulant times and he was a warrior, not a priest. The focus of this novel seemed to be from a religious perspective rather than a historical.
