In this next of the series of God’s Women, Fr. Mike recounts the famous story of David and Bathsheba.
David follows Saul as king of the Jews. He had nine wives when he had relations with Bathsheba. But that wasn’t enough. He desired her when he saw her in the garden not too far from his own dwelling.
You know the story well.
Bathsheba becomes pregnant with the king’s child. So David connives to have her husband, Uriah, killed in battle by having him put in the front lines. Much happens.
Fr. Mike then applies the story to our lives. What about adultery today? Why does it happen? What can be done to prevent it? He also examines how we make moral decisions.
