Women of the Bible: Abigail's Story
They were women of conviction and courage, whose stories inspire the faithful to this day.
To settle her brother's gambling debt, Abigail of Carmel convinces her boorish lord to marry her. Then exiled by him to the life of a shepherdess, she grows to love David, the warrior son of Jesse, who will come face-to-face with her husband in a senseless warand destroy her hopes of peace.
