Most widely held works about Bathsheba
    Unspoken by Francine Rivers( Book )
    12 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,751 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 )
    4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 876 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?

    13 editions published between 1985 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 840 libraries worldwide
    Des prix littéraires français attribués en 1986, celui-ci est sans doute le mieux mérité. En effet, ce roman (le second de l'auteur) a obtenu le prix Fémina étranger. Il dépeint la vie à la cour du roi David et son amour pour la "presque effoyablement belle" et trop parfaite Bethsabée enlevée à Urie son époux. Un grand roman biblique sur l'amour, la sensualité, la puissance du Seigneur, la mort et le pouvoir

    The female ancestors of Christ by Ann Belford Ulanov( Book )
    4 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 416 libraries worldwide
    The spiritual power of the feminine shines forth in this psychological study of four Old Testament heroines from Jesus' family tree. Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba are the only women mentioned by name in the Gospels' genealogies; for the author this indicates that they impart something essential to the lineage of Christ. By exploring their brave and unconventional lives, she demonstrates how salvation enters the world in the feminine mode of being human, through these women's embodiment of such powerful and deeply feminine qualities as ingenuity, audacity, determination, compassion, seduction and devotion
