Product Description

From Amazon

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. Rivers adeptly brings the biblical account to life, portraying the difficult struggles of good people, the corrupting influence of power, and God's love for those who make mistakes--even big mistakes. --Cindy Crosby

5.0 out of 5 stars Bathsheba and the sin you cant put down March 21 2004
Format:Hardcover
This book is based on the romance between Bathsheba and King David, from the bible. It is full of emotion and just written fabulously. The emotion Francine Rivers puts in to the book is just so grabbing. In it, bathsheba is madly in love with David. She is so in love with him, that it hurts; and the way ms rivers describes that made me fall in love with David! Bathshebas story is all about Gods mercy and his neverending grace. Bathsheba and David commited a terrible sin, and had to pay for it dearly; bathshebas own family disowned her and she was spat upon is hatred, plus her first born son died and she had to watch her beloved love, david share his affection with dozens of other wives and concubines! Nevertheless, Bathsheba sought out God and raised her children to be great children of God. Gods mercy was spread upon both Bathsheba and David as they repented and got a taste of Gods love and tender mercy. A must read for any believer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up for Francine! Feb. 10 2004
Format:Hardcover
Unspoken is a poignant Biblical love story between Bathsheba & King David (one of the most beloved Biblical characters). This book gives you an insight of one of the most scandalous love affairs in Biblical history. Francine Rivers did a wonderful job of bringing their story to life with her gift of storytelling. This is the first book I've ever read by Francine Rivers, and it certainly won't be the last one either.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best of the series July 30 2002
Format:Hardcover
I honestly think that this is the best book of the series--but of course, I haven't read the last one yet. There is a humanness to Bathsheba and David that I didn't get out of the Biblical version. The author portrays David as a humble man, who forgets his role as king and spiritual leader of his people to focus on his own physical desires. This leads to chaos. David eventually comes back to his true role as king.
Bathsheba was a little girl with a dream. She grew into a woman who was forced to marry against that dream, and then betrayed that marriage. But after all the heartache that she had and that she caused, she came to have a relationship with God that allowed her peace of spirit.
The end of the book brought tears to my eyes. I think that everyone should read this book and learn how one action can change the destiny of an entire people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unspoken April 26 2002
By J-- S--
Format:Hardcover
This is a hard book to read, in many ways. It shows the devastation which happens when we allow coveteousness to grow and are not nurturing contentment and faith in God's provision for ourselves. It is very realistic, one of the earmarks of F. Rivers' books. The presumptions about how the breakdown of David's family happened is very insightful. Though, again, this is one person's ideas of the details of a true story. It should be held as just that. I was a little disappointed in the view of David, as the man. So often, the men are held with a kind of.. almost condescending tolerance... We women must fight that attitude! It is not God-honoring. But on the whole, the book is a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Francine Story from the Biblical Past March 7 2002
Format:Hardcover
Once again, Francine Rivers brings a bible story to life with all of its reality and wonderful characters. Her characters become very real and even Bathsheeba who I always viewed in a negative light suddenly seemed human and acceptable as a person. By portraying Bathsheeba as a real person, it helped me look at the whole story of David and Bathsheeba in a new light and a much more forgiving one too I may add. The story is well written, poignant, and beautifully narrated. I very much enjoyed it and am now looking forward to reading the 5th book in the series. I hope she writes more of them about some New Testament women when the Church first began.
