Romance. Passion. Devotion. This is the landscape of love and the
longing of our hearts. We all desire love -- to feel its emotion and power,
the happiness and wholeness it brings. And nowhere is it more inspiring
than in Solomonís Song of Love.
Have you ever wondered what the Bible really says about
sex, love and romance? The answer is in the Song of Solomon.
Yet when you read its lyrics, their meaning is obscure.
For centuries the Song has been shrouded in mystery. But now its breathtaking vision
of love is unveiled. Hear the Song as it was heard long ago and feel
its transforming power. Love songs come from the heart and speak to the heart,
and none can touch you more deeply than the mysterious Song of Songs.
Inviting readers on a one-of-a-kind journey that delves deeply into the
passion and challenge of love, is the mission of Solomonís Song of Love: Let the
Song of Songs Inspire Your Own Romantic Story (Howard Publishing, 2004).
Acting as expedition leader for this adventure, Dr. Craig Glickman guides you
through the Songís panorama of romantic wonder.
Buckle your seat belt for the ride! Whether by time travel to view love in
ancient kingdoms -- from Sumeria to Egypt and beyond -- or by visits to the
havens of poetry in Old Europe, or by excursions to Hollywoodís romantic
movies and love songs, you will discover secrets of the ancient world that
explain the Song, and stories in the modern world that illuminate it.
Solomonís Song of Love is "a vision for our times," says Dr. Henry Cloud.
We all long for a love that
"ďhas it all." But we often lack a clear picture of
what that love might be. So we begin relationships doomed to fail or damage
relationships that had great potential. How could what began with such promise
conclude with such sadness? In the aftermath we experience anger, pain and doubt,
wondering what went wrong. We always need a vision of what love was meant to be,
but especially in moments like this. Solomonís Song of Love provides that vision
of love. And especially for those who are hurting, it displays the Songís healing
grace in ways never before explained.
"Solomonís Song of Love is an absolute work of art," says Dr. Paul Meier.
Finally! One of the most beautiful and mysterious books of the Bible is displayed
for all to see. And it is done with simplicity and beauty as the author unveils
the meaning of the Song of Solomon in romantic, poetic prose. Yet behind this
delightful presentation is a lifetime of study and scholarship, three special
appendices, including interpretive notes, and the authorís fresh translation of the
Song, published here for the first time.
"Readers rediscover Solomonís timeless song of love," writes Publishers Weekly.
Elegantly written, Solomonís Song of Love portrays a "fascinating, captivating
love so beautiful that it breaks through even Solomonís lust for power and pleasure."
The love is also so strong that no difficulties cast doubt on the loversí devotion.
Yes, even this Song of ideal love presents the need to work through conflict, and
the lovers show how to do so.
Now you can see the kind of relationship you most want. "The lovers of the song
help us see not just what our partners should be like, but what our relationships
should feel like: the role of emotion, longing, and sexual attraction; the foundation
of friendship, respect, and commitment; the experience of intimacy, certainty,
"Unforgettable images. Irresistible beauty. Undeniable insight.
The Song of Solomon and Shulamith. It is a story of love to inspire us and a
vision of love to guide us. A gift from their hearts to ours."
