Most widely held works about Bathsheba
    Unspoken by Francine Rivers( Book )
    8 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 1,749 libraries worldwide
    In award-winning writer Francine Rivers's five-book Lineage of Grace series about women in the family tree of Jesus Christ, perhaps the most compelling installment is Unspoken, the love story of David and Bathsheba. This Old Testament saga of adultery, power, and battles fought both on the field of combat and in the human heart touches on the cost of poor choices, the need for forgiveness, and finding ultimate fulfillment -- themes that are relevant today. Rivers writes poignantly of how Bathsheba falls in love with David as a little girl, and of her bitterness when she comes of age and is given in marriage to Uriah, one of David's mighty warriors. Love cannot be commanded, however, and it's not long before the sexual tension between David and Bathsheba reaches its logical conclusion, with disastrous results

    Bathsheba : a novel by Jill Eileen Smith( Book )
    5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 959 libraries worldwide
    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 holds dear. Can she find forgiveness at the feet of the Almighty? Or has her sin separated her from God--and David--forever?
    A woman's place is in the house royal women of Judah and their involvement in the House of David by Elna K Solvang( Computer File )
    2 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 581 libraries worldwide
    Archaeological discoveries have increasingly brought to light evidence of women's involvement in the royal houses of the ancient Near East, yet such evidence has not fundamentally altered the perception of monarchy as an exclusively male-gendered theological, political, and social institution. Solvang's study assembles the evidence in search of an integrated view of royal women's position and power in critical functions of monarchy, challenging customary assumptions about women's place in the royal harem. The historical information serves as a backdrop for a literary reading of biblical texts

    In her fifth and final Lineage of Grace novella, renowned Christian writer Rivers tackles the most celebrated woman in Christian history Mary, the mother of Jesus. Using the biblical account of Jesus' life as a framework, Rivers adds such imaginative scenes as Mary watching the young Jesus healing his little sister, Anne, or Mary pondering Jesus' ability to see that there is always enough bread and oil in the larder to keep the family afloat. There are warm mother-son exchanges ("You're so thin!") and personal details ("Jesus had Mary's chin ... but no one ever said Jesus had her eyes ... ")

    Demise of the warlord : a new look at the David story by Daniel Bodi( Book )
    1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
    "David's adulterous affair with Bathsheba and the murder of his elite officer Uriah the Hittite, her husband, described in 2 Samuel 11-12, represent pivotal events in the political career and private life of this ancient Hebrew warlord and tribal chieftain. In this monograph, the Hebrew text describing these events is submitted to extensive historical-critical, narratological and comparative analysis. The lion's share is devoted to comparative analysis juxtaposing 2 Samuel 11-12 to Akkadian documents from Mari and El-Amarna, a study which has allowed us to draw numerous literary, historical and linguistic comparisons and contrasts."--Page [1]
