As You've Never Looked At Her Before...
One of the Bible's most misunderstood and misjudged women, Bathsheba comes to life in this new biblical reimagining from Angela Hunt. Combining historical facts with detailed fiction, this is an eye-opening portrait that will have you reconsidering everything you thought you knew about her.
After receiving God's promise of a lifelong reign and an eternal dynasty, King David forces himself on Bathsheba, a loyal soldier's wife. When her resulting pregnancy forces the king to murder her husband and add her to his harem, Bathsheba struggles to protect her son while dealing with the effects of a dark prophecy and deadly curse on the king's household..
Bathsheba is the second installment in Hunt's A Dangerous Beauty series. The first novel was Hunt's reimagining of Esther's story in Esther: Royal Beauty. In this series, Hunt in introducing the concept of "tob"...
"The Hebrew text has two words that are typically used to describe personal appearance. One, yapeh, is rather mild and means 'good looking.' The other, tob, when applied to women's looks, conveys sensual appeal. This woman is so beautiful that she arouses the desire of men who see her." Sue Poorman Richards/Larry RichardsHunt's reimagining is told from the vantage points of Bathsheba and the prophet Nathan. I appreciated that much of the dialogue and "story" followed very closely to what we find in the Bible. Hunt's artistic liberty and impeccable research added to this creates a perspective that is plausible and one that will make you think and search the Scriptures on your own. Hunt knocked this one out of the ballpark. You will enjoy this journey.
