Item description for Solomon Latte (Coffee Cup Bible Series) by Sandra Glahn...
Overview Do you read poetry the same way you read a novel? Do you read a letter the same way you read an owner?s manual? Do you expect to read a history book that began with ?Once upon a time. . . .?? Of course you don?t. Knowing the genre we?re reading has an enormous influence on how we read it. The Song of Solomon (commonly referred to as ?The Song of Songs?) is a work of poetry. And because it is a work of poetry, Sandra Glahn takes a somewhat different approach in explaining the book?s meaning through her Bible study Solomon Latte. Each weekly study takes women verse by verse through the Song of Solomon, beginning with an introduction to be done on Sundays, followed by five days of studying Scripture and making pertinent life applications along the way. The weekly studies are concluded with fitting devotional readings to be read on Saturdays. These devotionals contain an overview of what has been studied throughout the week along with some closing thoughts and a prayer. Sandra?s unconventional thought processes regarding the poetic verses of Solomon are sprinkled throughout the study. The Song of Solomon is not only a work of poetry; it is a very intimate love story. Sandra does not mince words as she examines some of the most explicit writing in Scripture. She also effectively presents the idea that New Testament parallels concerning Christ and his ?bride,? the Christian church, can be seen in the ancient writings of a king who lived nearly a thousand years before the King of Kings was born.
""Solomon Latte is part of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies, a series of Bible studies for women in compact, workbook format that examine the "life and times" of certain Bible characters and the books of the Bible that pertain to them. Each study is to be read over a four-to-six week period, and study sections are broken down into short, daily segments designed to fit reader's busy lifestyles.Understanding that time is precious, the Coffee Cup Bible Studies are patterned in such a convenient way that they can be read during brief windows of opportunity that allow for meditation and study (breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, etc.). Scripture is provided from the NET Bible (New English Translation), making Bible study convenient for occasions when you can't carry a Bible.The Song of Solomon (commonly referred to as"The Song of Songs") is a work of poetry. And because it is poetry, author Sandra Glahn treats it as such in her Bible study, Solomon Latte." "But not only is Song of Songs a work of poetry; it also is a deeply intimate portrayal of love-so intimate, you might not permit your children to read it if weren't part of the Bible.In this verse-by-verse study of Song of Solomon, Sandra does not mince words as she examines some of the most explicit writing in Scripture. She also effectively examines how a picture of Christ and his "bride," the Christian, can be seen in this ancient newlywed couple who lived centuries before Christ's birth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Solomon Latte (Coffee Cup Bible Series)?
It will challenge you marriage, make you blush, and get you deeper in the Word. Jun 20, 2006
We're going through this study on the Song of Solomon in our Woman's group and they are loving it! I keep on hearing comments like, "I needed this class 55 years ago." And, "Our young people need to hear this." This study contains a frank discussion on sex-done-right from God's perspective, that will not only challenge marriages, but also unlock some mysteries in the Song of Solomon that may have been previously perplexing to us. I took a master's-level class on the "Song of Solomon" and this study still gave me insights I have not heard before. A great resource.
A tantalizing love story Jun 7, 2006
Leave your inhibitions at the door! In this compelling Bible study, author Sandra Glahn pulls back the curtain on the relationship between King Solomon and his beloved bride, providing a fresh biblical perspective on courtship and marital love as described in the Song of Songs.
Solomon Latte takes a postmodern approach to helping women understand Scripture. It contains powerful illustrations, fun activities, up-to-date language, and high-impact application questions to help today's readers understand the "love story of the ages." Glahn demolishes many of the common Christian stereotypes by providing a balanced, open, and truthful look at God's plan for marriage and sexual intimacy. She also offers readers vital keys for unlocking the romance, mystery, conflict, passion, and intrigue inherent in the original Hebrew text.
Solomon Latte is perfect for both small groups and personal devotions. It will surprise and delight readers while deepening their understanding of God's love and His character in so many ways - and it will spice up their love lives, too! One thing is guaranteed: no one who reads this book could ever think of the Bible as "irrelevant" or "boring." A must-read!
Definitely not your grandmother's devotional! May 10, 2006
Solomon Latte is definitely NOT your grandmother's devotional book!
Ms. Glahn skillfully unpacks Song of Solomon as a work of poetry. Coupling her research into the poetic genre of the day with her expertise in sexual intimacy in marriage, Solomon Latte is one compelling study.
An added bonus- specific questions created for personal application and reflection, and more general questions designed for group discussion. Our small group worked through Solomon Latte and always had plenty to talk about without ever feeling like we were overstepping the lines of propriety. Sex is a topic rarely discussed in the church... Solomon Latte is a breath of fresh air!
Hot Topic for the Women's Bible Study! Apr 30, 2006
Of the Coffee Cup Bible Study series, Solomon Latte is the "hottest." This one also has more of Glahn's excellent commentary. Her scholarship does not detract from the beauty of the poetry or the message of the Song of Songs. She has a real gift for putting culture into context.
This study should open up some real conversations with the group and the husbands!
The Coffee Cup series has the Biblical text printed in the study. I always have it in my briefcase.
I Highly Recommend This Study Series! Apr 26, 2006
Again in Solomon Latte, Sandra Glahn has taken a portion of scripture and compiled a six-week study that will enrich, encourage, challenge, and comfort the Bible student's life. Glahn's insight into history, customs, language, and culture helped me to read through Song of Songs with an understanding like never before. I highly recommend all four of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies and am looking forward to seeing what comes next!
