As New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Jeremiah reminds us, it's a biblical truth: Sex and passionate, romantic love are God's ideas!

Nothing rivals the beauty of the writing in the Song of Solomon-- and noth

what an awesome book. this is one I'll be buying and passing out to friends who are married and friends who are yet to be married. Now I want to read the "Message" version of Song of Solomon. I wish I knew and could read it in the original hebrew. David Jeremiah does a great job of explaining what different phrases meant in those days and how we can apply the concepts in our day. We need more people like David Jeremiah who are willing to talk freely about the true meanig of Love, Marriage and Se ...more

My wife and I read through this book together. It's was very good. There were places that we thought drug a bit, but overall it was wonderful. I highly recommend the book, with the suggestion that couples read it together!

Wes's Mammo & Papa gave us this book for a wedding gift, so we wanted to honor them and read it. It was very cheesy, with a lot of rambling, but there were some good small nuggets to pull out of the study on Song of Solomon.

Thorough dive into the wisdom, history, and social context of the Song of Solomon and how it applies today.

My rule about books is that if I don't get interested within the first 50 pages then I stop reading it. Since I received the book as a gift I decided to read through it anyways. The book is one of those that stretches the topic of sex, from a Christian point of view, even though you can pretty much cover the topic in less that 100 pages, similar to Sacred Sex: A Spiritual Celebration of Oneness in Marriage by Tim Alan Gardner. My bible covers the Song of Solomon in about 8 pages so I do not unde ...more

While I appreciate the intentions of the book, and many of the anecdotal stories provided in it (especially the one of the man who paid and exorbitant dowry for his wife because he always wanted her to know her amazing worth in his eyes), it was long winded and I had a hard time getting through it. It honestly felt like there was a word quota that had to be reached and the extra words were filler just to get there not to emphasize the points.
I made it about half way before I called it. As a rom

Not many Christians talk about sex, which is disheartening, because God created it. I don't understand how people in church expect others to live by God's standards when they make God's standards seem unattractive. Not David Jeremiah, though. He eloquently explores what God intended for love, marriage and sex, using the Song of Solomon (or Song of Songs) as the anchor. David Jeremiah is tasteful but spares no shortcuts with the sexually charged book of the bible, which is inspired by the Holy Sp ...more

As I minister in the local jail a couple times a month, I like to reach them in what they are searching in the Bible during their own private time. Last time I was there one lady asked for info on a relationship of love they way God wants us to love our husbands, and that she's currently studying The Song of Songs and I have this book on my shelf. I'm so thankful so that now I have a solid resource to answer her questions.

This book has a lot of wisdom for married couples young and old and for those yet-to-be married. A great read that's based on the wonderful book of the Song of Solomon. It gives a wonderful break down that any person can understand of the meaning behind the verses and the courtship and marriage of Solomon and his bride (as well as the ups and downs of their relationship).

The ideas presented in this book aren't groundbreaking, but it's good to have a reminder of their importance. What's unique about this book is that it presents these ideas by walking the reader through the biblical book of Song of Songs, and that makes it a fun read.
