Most of us are familiar with the story in 2 Samuel 11-12 that tells the story of David and Bathsheba but it is through this book that I have begun to better comprehend this story. Bathsheba experienced shame, fear, and great suffering and I have a whole new understanding of her dilemna. She knew that the penalty for refusing to answer the King's summons could be severe and her husband wasn't there to protect her. She went and we know what occurred but have we ever really considered what she truly felt? I feel sure that her fear, shame, and grief was overwhelming but what about the anger? She surely struggled in her ability to forgive King David. Author Natalie Chambers Snapp has done an admirable job in sharing modern-day experiences and comparing them to David and Bathsheba's story. The Bathsheba Battle has twelve chapters, among them Turning Away from Shame; Turning Away from Anger; Turning Away from Comparison; Turning Away from Fear; Permission to Grieve; Forgiving Others--- and Yourself; and Turning to Hope. At the end of each of these chapters she has chosen appropriate scripture for Turning to God and listed Questions for Reflection or Discussion to help us further expand our understanding. This book is filled with many nuggets of wisdom and many wonderful statements and I especially love her reminder that 'David and Bathsheba both could have given their anger permission to turn them away from God. Instead, they chose to seek God rather than run from Him.' This is a book that touches on many of the human emotions that we experience as humans: shame, anger, fear, grieving, forgiveness, and hope. The Bathsheba Battle is perfect for personal bible study but I can see it being used in a woman's Bible study group. I received a complimentary digital copy from the author but I am not required to write a positive review. These are my honest thoughts.

This book spoke to me personally. The Bathsheba Battle is written by Natalie Chambers Snapp. The story of David and Bathsheba is one we all know. Natalie really brought Bathsheba to life and allowed me to have more insight to what Bathsheba went through due to David’s sin. I felt as though I came alongside Bathsheba and experienced all the stuff!! She went from pain, suffering, guilt, shame, grief, and anger to perseverance and forgiveness. Bathsheba lived all of these emotions! Natalie used the story of Bathsheba to illustrate how we also, in our own lives, walk through these seasons of emotions! Her book encourages women, with wisdom from scripture, as they journey through the hard stuff in life! At the end of each chapter, she includes scripture references and discussion questions. This book would be a wonderful group study for women. I highly recommend this to read. #bathsheebabattle
