Item description for Song of Songs: Love Poetry of Scripture (Spiritual Commentaries) by CA Bergant Dianne...

The Song of Songs is a classical work of ancient literature that continues to be read, studied and prayed the world over. Essentially it is a collection of sensual love poems. Its inclusion in the holy scriptures can be surprising and even shocking to some. So what is the depth and meaning behind this ancient masterpiece? How can we read it and understand it today? Dianne Bergant offers a spiritual reading of these love poems of Scriptures from a literal perspective. She leads the reader to see how its issues and concerns are often our own. She emphasizes the beauty and goodness of love and how the fruits of this love lead to a modern, wholesome spirituality that respects others and works for their good. Moreover, Bergant shows how the Song of Songs is particularly sensitive to issues of race or ethnic origin, class and gender. It likewise respects ecology recognizing that we are part of a larger community.
