The Song of Songs is the tender tale about a monarch and a maiden; a king and his captivating bride.Viewed by some as a rather obscure book of the Bible, with eyes to see, it is truly a book that reveals the passionate, intimate, and jealous love that God has for his people. The Song of Songs is to be savored, meditated upon, and experienced, because intimacy with God can ...more

In His Desire is For me: The Story of Solomon and the Shulammite by Bob Emery we have a study of the Song of Songs that translate the relationship between Solomon and his bride as our relationship with God. It grows slowly, and in trust, until their is complete unity and that relationship is translated in to love for our neighbor.

Using a fiction narrative, Bob Emery has written an engaging and educational commentary on the Song of Songs. The author's gift of description brings alive the Biblical book through the passion and intimacy experienced by King Solomon and his wife.

Scripted as a 30-day devotional guide, His Desire Is For Me is carefully crafted to savor, much like a traditional love story. The book takes the reader through the three phases of love: initial love, increasing love, and mature love. Summaries at the

Bob Emery's combination of narrative fiction and spiritual commentary in this 30-day devotional provides a powerful reminder that The Song of Songs isn't just a story about the love between a man and a woman, but the story of God's deep love for us.

If you've never really grasped the spiritual significance of The Song of Songs, realized the intimate love God has for you, or encountered God personally, the unique approach of His Desire Is For Me will bless you in ways you can't begin to imagine.

In "His Desire Is For Me" author, Bob Emery, mixes fiction and commentary to create a 30-day devotion on the Song of Songs, or Song of Solomon.

Bob builds on this short poem from the Bible- 117 verses - to introduce us to the Shulamite and Samson.

Their narrative takes you from courtship to consummation - a parable of the relationship of God and Israel, or for Christians, Christ and the Church.

If you decide to read this book, which I highly recommend, I hope it touches your heart and helps convinc

This is a wonderful devotional book. It's pages led me to inquisitive conversation with God, bringing some awe inspiring revelations to my heart. Even though it's designed to be a 30 day process, I slowed down, sometimes taking as much as a week before moving on to the next chapter. It's that rich with prose and insights. This book will help anyone understand their journey towards maturity in Christ better. And it's a must read for anyone whose suffered church hurts and doesn't quite know what t ...more

I like this book. I could probably say a lot of things about it but the most important thing is that it draws me closer to Christ. This is invaluable and priceless. So thanks Bob for writing the book and sharing it with me.
