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. They have felt
uncomfortable--even embarrassed--when confronted with its strange and
erotic imagery. "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." So writes Lloyd Carr in this introduction
and commentary to the Song of Solomon. With his own unique style, Carr
skillfully explains the meaning of this ancient love story in a way
that can be clearly grasped and applied for Christians living in today's
world. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been
completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format
with the new cover design for the series.
