What a powerful novel! You will laugh, you will cry, you will rejoice! Griggs has done an awesome job putting modern day religion into a novel! Readers will learn about Brianna and the trials and tribulations that she faces in a short period of time. Her faith is put to the test, but she stays steady within the Lord.

Griggs uses a scripture at the beginning of each chapter which coincides with what the chapter is about, which made me think about what I was about to read with each chapter. A very

I cannot begin to tell you how much I looked forward to receiving this book, it was several months coming, but well worth the wait. This book is more than Christian Fiction, its lessons presented in a form you will truly enjoy; Vanessa Davis Griggs gives you a better understanding of biblical doctrine.

Vanessa Davis Griggs knows her Bible and is able to bring the modern day into well known biblical teachings, giving the verses more understanding for today’s values. She accomplishes this by addres

Finally received it today! Thank you very much!
Just finished it...It's 4am. Wow, where to begin on this one! I had some instinctive dislikes about this book even until the end, BUT the more I think about it. It is written about as realistically as you could possibly do with an update of this story. Other than specifically saying for sure that he ordered the husband killed, the author followed the Biblical story line with an up to date theme as close as she could. Even to the older wiser counselo

As always Mrs. Vanessa has touch hearts and taught us about Redeeming Waters. The book hit home for me in some areas but has also showed me how much God loves us and want for us to willingly do his Will.

DEATILS VANESSA DAVIS-GRIGGS DID IT AGAIN. I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN, READ IT IN 2 DAYS. THIS IS DEFINITLY A PAGE TURNER. I ACTUALLY LEARNED A LOT ABOUT MIKVAH. SOMETHING I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT. I PERSONALLY CAN RELATE TO BRIANNA AND ALANAS FRIENDSHIP. THEIR INTERACTION WAS SO REAL TO ME, THE TWISTS OF THE STORYLINE IS WHAT KEPT ME EXCITED, THE PLOT SURELY DID THIKEN. I WOULD RECOMMEND REDEEMING WATERS TO ANY AND EVERYONE. IT IS A GREAT READ FOR CHRISTIAN BOOKCLUBS. KUDOS TO REDEEMING WATERS

What a story. Once I got started I did not want to stop. Absolutely loved how the story line was in direct correlation to the story of David. Outstanding message.
Catherine
Redeeming Waters, a story written of the account of King David in the bible, is full of drama and parallels the exact story of the bible. However, it is written in a way that would make the reader want to go back and read the story of David and Bathesheba. I have always been a fan of novels that retold stories of the bible in new and innovative ways. This is one of the best.
Metris
This a very power message focusing on the biblical story of Kind David & Bethsheba. I have to admit that I have not read this particular story in the bible, but now I can't to see what the book of Samuel has to say!
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it started really slow, but I'm glad I stuck with it.
Peggy Parsons
Redeeming Waters did not restrain conflict or limit subjects dealt with. Giggs cleverly paralleled Biblical King David with a modern Christian Musician. And yet, I found myself skimming on occasion. Not sure why.
Sheraie Darby


Slow beginning almost did not finish and had to renew the book. I did not enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed Griggs other stories. There were no real surprises since it told the story of David closely.
stacie
awesome Christian fiction novel; 21st century book based on King David and Bathsheba from the Bible. Griggs writes in a way that helps you think about your life while still giving you a good story.
Terri
I thought this was a great modern-day take on the story of King David from the Bible. It shows that even when we make mistakes, our lives can be used for good by God.

Probably is a good book, but I couldn't get into the writing style.

On to the next book.

Not one of my favs didn't like the plot. I much prefer when she creates her own characters.
