David & Bathsheba
Roberta Kells Dorr
Random House, Inc.
GREAT Historical Romance
I picked David and Bathsheba up at a used book store, not knowing what to expect out of an out of print and unknown author, and I couldn't have been more surprised. This book isn't just an ordinary historical romance with the same predictable plodding plot. The love story, which isn't a typical one to begin with, as I will explain later, is colored richly with details of Bible-era Israel--from ...

This book was very well written! It was very engaging and thought-provoking! Once I started reading, I had a very hard time putting it down! You won't be sorry buying this book!
Bathsheba: The love story that changed history

The Queen of Biblical Fiction
Before Francine Rivers and Angela Elwell Hunt there was Roberta Kells Dorr. This book is well worth reading for a new perspective of the old story of David and Bathsheba. You will find yourself going back to the Bible, reading it with new eyes.

Fighting with Hope Against Breast Cancer
Bathsheba's Breast: Women, Cancer & History by James Olson is a far-reaching examination of the dreaded disease of breast cancer. Impressive for its scope of historical, medical, political and personal references, the book transcends its obvious historical imperative by including much about living with hope in the face of adversity as well as dying without surrendering to the evil disease. A ...
The Bathsheba Connection
A real page-turner
A well-paced enjoyable read. The characters come to life in a believable setting, with plenty of wit and suspense. A real page-turner! Highly recommended.
The Bathsheba Deadline: An Original Novel
I thought reporters all wore fedoras as they sat smoking Old Golds at their Underwoods. Jack Engelhard, who knows the newspaper game inside and out gives us a fascinating peek into a modern newsroom. At the same time....reading this book I could almost skip reading the morning paper. The story line reads like the headlines of today. Really good...really entertaining.

Edward I and Llewelyn
This was a play first published in 1593, with the theme of King Edward's struggle against the Welsh prince Llewelyn ap Gruffudd, otherwise known as Llewelyn the Last. Llewelyn was a prince of Gwynedd who adopted the style Prince of Wales in 1258 and was formally recognised in this role by King Henry III at the Treaty of Montgomery in 1267. Edward I became ...
James R. Shott
After reading "Abigail", I could not wait to read "Bathsheba". Author James R. Shott is an absolutely masterful storyteller. The characters are not just biblical figures, but fleshed out human beings, faults and all. Especially intriguing is that the narrator is Bathsheba, wife of King David. Not many bible stories are told from a woman's perspective. Shott sustains the reader's interest so ...

Fantastic Retelling of Biblical Story!
I am totally amazed by this book and it took me very little time to read, because I was so absorbed in the story. The book is a wonderful retelling of the story of Bathsheba, a 19 year old woman who was torn away by King David from her first husband and somehow works her way up to being his most important wife. She uses her intelligence to take care of her husband and insure that her son ...
The Female Ancestors of Christ
Ann Belford Ulanov
Interesting, unusual depth view of the feminine
I enjoyed this book very much. Although it is written from the viewpoint of depth psychology, it is very readable and accessible (and brief). The sexual information may be surprising to those who have only received traditional bible training. Very relevant for those with a Christian heritage, whether they are practicing Christians or not.
Meet Bathsheba: Dramatic Portraits of Biblical Women
The book was in perfect condition, and exactly what I was looking for, came promptly and will be treasured.

Love these books, Open your Bible!
If it is hard for you to open the bible, these books are amazing stories that stimulate your interest in learning the Truth. Rivers has a wonderful sense of storytelling that elicits you and grabs your attention bringing me right into the heart of the historical times. I am a devout Christian and was given one of her books when I was Baptised at 39. I had never read the Bible, raised Jewish, and ...
GREAT READ-BROUGHT THE BIBLE ALIVE
I LOVED THIS BOOK WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE TO READ IT, IT MADE THE BIBLE STORY COME ALIVE, I HAD A HARD TIME PUTTING IT DOWN. THIS IS MY FIRST READ BY THIS AUTHOR AND I WILL BE LOOKING FOR HER OTHER WRITINGS, I LOVED IT!
Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
1 review, 2009
The beginning has me hooked.
I was hooked from the minute I began "Far From the Madding Crowd." Hardy's descriptions of "Wessex" take me back to my halcyon days in Yorkshire -- yes, two completely different regions, but in many respects, so similar. This may be the best writing ever, describing the Victorian landscape, by any author. Every page has at least one memorable line, and most have more. Just one example, ...
Unspoken (Lineage of Grace Series #4)
Tyndale House Publishers, 2004
Review of "Unspoken: Bathsheba"
Okay, so I am hooked on Francine Rivers' Lineage of Grace series. These books are completely awe inspiring and I have learned so much from each of them. The women of these stories are so important because they are apart of Jesus' genealogy. The latest one that I have read is "Unspoken : The Story of Bathsheba". Ms. Rivers tells how Bathsheba loves David since her childhood, her marriage to Davids ...
Mother Roots: The Female Ancestors of Jesus
Helen Bruch Pearson
Great study for a Sunday school class or small group
The women's Sunday school class that I teach is enjoying this book study. It leads us into great discussion of both the Bible and current events. I love it when a study can do both!
Now You See It . . .: Stories from Cokesville, PA
wonderful first novel
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.Bathsheba Monk has written an evocative bildungsroman of life in a small Pennsylvania city on the verge of collapse. She has unsparingly written of the good times and the bad times with humor and with sentimental empathy.By couching her story in a series of connected short-stories,she was able to write of different, disconnected time periods and to introduce ...
David and Bathsheba: Through Nathan's Eyes
Concise, Imaginative and Well Worth Reading
Leave it to a former federal prosecutor turned skilled defense lawyer, to, with scripture and imagination, voice the challenges of delivering an adulterous murderer to a contrite, restored spirit. (who knew!) Author's concise outline of the path from sin and condemnation to restoration really is well worth the 113 page read.
Murdered by His Wife
University of Massachusetts Press
Local History at Its Best. An Adventure for the Whole Family
Having just moved to the area, I (a professional historian specializing in modern Europe) have been reading as much local history as possible to get a feel for the history of central Massachusetts. "Murdered By His Wife" is outstanding. Ms. Navas writes with clear, crisp prose, and sticks very close to the original documents, many of which are reproduced in her book. She tells a superb tale of ...
