Overview

There is no question that our world today suffers from high divorce rates, rampant sexual promiscuity, and a free and easy attitude to relationships. While we can blame the presence of sin as a reason for this, it does not wholly explain why many Christians seem to struggle with the same sexual and marital problems as the world.

In the belief that this is partly due to the failure of the church to instruct its people about the true nature of redeemed relationships, Anthony Selvaggio takes a thoroughly biblical and immensely practical look at the topics of human sexuality, romance, and marriage, as they are revealed in the Song of Songs. It is his desire that marriages will be restored and enriched as we examine this picture of the divine love of God expressed in the greatest love of all, the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of numerous Christian topics. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important apologetic concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about heaven, the trinity, and marriage.

Pastor Selvaggio envisions this book being used by pastors for premarital or marriage counseling. Indeed, it is an excellent resource for that purpose. It may also be profitably used in a class or Bible study for couples, or, better yet, in a one-on-one study between fathers and their teenage sons or mothers and their teenage daughters. Recommended.
