Item description for Song of Songs: The Divine Romance Between God and Man by watchman nee...
Overview God¿s love is poured out on the believers without measure. Christ woos us by progressively revealing more of Himself to us in our experience, and He gradually draws us to run after Him as our lovely Bridegroom so that we can grow to be His beloved bride. In The Song of Songs Watchman Nee expounds King Solomon¿s poetic allegory of God¿s love. He discusses the stages of a believer¿s relationship with Christ and reveals the spiritual history of every believer. This history progresses from an initial pursuit of and satisfaction with Christ to an ever-increasing desire to be delivered from the self and the flesh through the genuine experience of the cross. In this deliverance there is the intimate, sweet communion of a divine romance, which issues in our living and working in union with Christ for the fulfillment of God¿s eternal purpose.

Reviews - What do customers think about Song Of Songs?
Deep calls to deep Jul 25, 2005
Outside of the Bible and "My Utmost for His Highest," this book had the greatest impact on my personal Christian walk. It is not a book for babes nor casual Christians. It's meat and more meat. If you want a deeply intimate, passionate, unquenchable love relationship with Christ, take this book to heart and apply its teachings. It is not an easy read and I found it most productive to read small sections at a time. This is followed by meditating on and praying over each learned tidbit. It is a precious, passionate, crystal clear exposition of a spiritual truth tragically unknown to most Christians. If you truly desire an intimate relationship with God; get, read, mull, digest, and apply the teachings of this book. I am on my third reading and continue to learn from it. Nee was truly endowed with the gift of divine perception.
Uses Scripture to Interpret Scripture May 7, 2005
Song of Songs is one of those perplexing books in the Bible that contains mysteries. Watchman Nee makes a qualifying statement in the introduction on symbolism. He describes the use of figures of speech in all works, including the Bible. It is this feature which makes for different interpretations of a book like the Song. Other Bible teachers have interpreted this book in a totally different way, seeing the Shulamite turning down Solomon's advances and the "he" in the various passages being someone else. When pronouns such as "he" are not directly connected to an identifying source of origin, it's easy to see how there can be different interpretations.
Another example of this can be found in the phrase about "the lily of the valley," which most people use to refer to the Lord Jesus. Nee interprets that as the Shulamite, i.e., that she is just a common lily among many others.
Having said all that, Nee's study is still benefical. You can tell he is thoroughly Bible literate as he constantly uses the Bible to interpret the Song. He traces various symbols back to other passages. The insights he brings in this study remain valid because the general theme is built on orthodoxy. He isn't advancing any "new gospel" but deepening an understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
"Song of Songs" brings reader closer to Christ Feb 9, 2002
Watchman Nee, with his simple yet profound approach to life in Christ, leads us deeper into understanding the relationship Father God desires with us as He prepares us to become the bride of Christ.
Nee reveals a God-centered purpose to this often misunderstood treasure of Holy Scripture. For those who regularly underline key passages and thoughts, there are two options. Put away your markers or be prepared to highlight the entire text. I found it difficult to read large portions at one sitting due to the depth of discovery revealed by this wonderful saint's insights.
It's an exellent challenge for those who want to draw ever nearer to the Lord.
A must for anyone seriously in love with Jesus. Jun 7, 1999
This is my favorite Christian title. It unlocks the mysteries hidden in the Song of Songs, and helps bring understanding for the individual of his/her growing position along side the Bridegroom. This book is a treasure!
