Back during my maternity leave after having my little one, which started almost a whole year ago already, my mom brought me a big paper bag full of books to read. At the time, I already had a book I was reading, and for some reason I really never dug into the bag much. Just recently though, I finally decided to go through the books and see what it was she brought. I felt silly for never jumping into some of the books sooner!
One of the books struck my fancy right off. I quickly jumped into it, just recently finished, and loved it! Francine Rivers’ Unspoken: Bathsheba is the fourth book of the Lineage of Grace series, which showcases five women who were after the love and support of Jesus Christ. This particular installment of the series describes the love story between David and Bathsheba. What a story to be told!
Though Bathsheba is typically labeled an adulteress, this story shows Bathsheba to be so much more than that. She was a strong woman, wife, and mother. Though she made her fair share of mistakes, Bathsheba sought the mercy and love of God and taught her children to do the same.
I feel like this book can speak to women around the world. We all make mistakes: big and small. Regardless of the choices we make though, we should always turn to God. He is always there for us and is just waiting on His children to call on Him. He is an eager Father. He is eager to help His children in any way possible.
I have just started the fifth book of the series, Unafraid: Mary, as well. Though I’m only a quarter of the way through, I can already tell, this book will not be a disappointment! So be on the lookout… I’m sure all five of the novellas will be showcased!
