Well folks, I have to laugh at myself a little bit when I tell you about this book. This book is really written for men but, I thought, what better way to understand men that to read about their innermost desires.  I think this will help any woman who plans to marry a man or have male children someday.  Men are so perplexing because they are so simple and different than women.  Oh yeah, I’m sure this book is helpful for men who are doing some soul searching as well.

The Song of Solomon, as its Hebrew title indicates, is “the best of songs.” In it we hear the passionate melody of romantic love. But whose love is described? Is it a couple’s love for each other, God’s love for Israel or Christ’s love for the church? This Old Testament book has fascinated and perplexed interpreters for centuries.  The Song is a celebration of the nature of humanity—male and female created in God’s image for mutual support and enjoyment. There is nothing here of the aggressive male and the reluctant or victimized female. They are one in their desires because their desires are God-given.
