Item description for Talks on the Song of Songs (Christian Classic) by Bernard of Clairvaux, Bernard & Bernard Bangley...

Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), one of Christianity's greatest mystics and father of what was perhaps the most influential new monastic order of the Middle Ages-the Cistercians-devoted eighteen years of his life to his literary master piece, Sermons on the Song of Songs. Although the Song of Songs, a brief book in the Old Testament, contains no explicit mention of God, the passionate love poetry became for Bernard a springboard into a major exposition of Scripture and an illuminated allegory of the spiritual life. Simply said, this gentle saint found God incarnate in every word. This volume containing excerpts from each of Bernard's 86 sermons, joins the Paraclete Christian Classics Series, a highly-acclaimed series devoted to making the great writers of the faith accessible to today's readers. Offering a fascinating glimpse of Christian theology, these writings encourage us to open ourselves to a new experience of love-the transforming and all-fulfilling embrace of God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Talks on the Song of Songs (Christian Classic)?

Clear and Refreshing  Jun 3, 2007
Saint Bernard has an amazing understanding of the Song of Songs. It helped me to embrace metaphorical language much more easily. I also loved some of the little comments he made to his sleepy students!
Clear and to the Point, Profound insight  Jan 6, 2004
This book has been a blessing to me ever since I got it in the mail. Bernard Bangley's modernizing of the profound and often prophetic insights of Bernard of Clairvaux is impeccable. The material is conveyed in a concise, clear manner but also allows us to peek into Bernard's spirituality and how he is feeling at the time the sermon is delivered. It is not a dry modernization, rather it is a clarification. This book is a must read for anyone seeking the Lord and to know Him in His beauty.
