Item description for The Message of the Song of Songs (Bible Speaks Today) by Tom Gledhill...

Overview
At first reading the Songs of Songs appears to be an unabashed celebration of the deeply rooted urges of physical attractions, mutual love and sexual consummation between a man and a woman. Tom Gledhill maintains that the Song of Songs is in fact just that a literary,poetic exploration of human love that strongly affirms loyality, beauty and sexuality in all their variety. With tender metaphor and extravagant imagery, the Song writer spins a tale of human love into the cadence of verse, innocent of our quest for historical persons behind the text. But in God's story, human beauty, intimacy and sexuality are not ends in themselves. They are transcendental longings, whispers of immortality. Like all of creation they point beyond themselves to their divine author, who in this Song is nowhere mentioned but everywhere assumed.

Publishers Description
At first reading the Song of Songs appears to be an unabashed celebration of the deeply rooted urges of physical attraction, mutual love and sexual consummation between a man and a woman. Tom Gledhill maintains that the Song of Songs is in fact just that--a literary, poetic exploration of human love that strongly affirms loyalty, beauty and sexuality in all their variety. With tender metaphor and extravagant imagery, the Song writer spins a tale of human love into the cadence of verse, innocent of our quest for historical persons behind the text. But in God's story, human beauty, intimacy and sexuality are not ends in themselves. They are transencedental longings, whispers of immortality. Like all of creation they point beyond themselves to their divine author, who in this Song is nowhere mentioned but everywhere assumed. Gledhill's commentary is a refreshing reminder of the Song of Song's ancient and vibrant affirmation of human sexuality that forms an interlude in the Old Testament story and echoes between the lines of Christian revelation.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of the Song of Songs (Bible Speaks Today)?

Excellent, Biblical and Practical  Oct 3, 2008
This is an excellent commentary on the Song of Solomon. This book gives great detail of the meaning of the text, but then it also excels in making good application of it as well. Hey men, this book of the Bible is the one book God dedicated to romance and loving your wife according to God's Word. This commentary will help you understand this book and also how to apply it in loving your wife like Jesus Christ loves His Church. Only drawback to the book is some of the psychobabble included in it. Otherwise, it is top notch.
