Discovering Christ in the Song of Solomon


Grace Baptist Church of Danville 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In many ways the Song of Solomon is the most precious and most refreshing of the books of inspiration. It is a book altogether about fellowship and communion with Christ. It is not in any sense to be interpreted literally. It is spiritual. It is an allegory, a spiritual dialogue between Christ our heavenly bridegroom and the church his bride. All who know the Lord Jesus Christ love him. A true, saving revelation and knowledge of Christ always creates an ardent love for Christ. To know him is to love him. It is not possible for a person to have a saving knowledge of Christ without a true heart of love for Christ. Any who do not love Christ, truly, sincerely, and above all others, simply do not know him.

In the Logos edition, Discovering Christ in the Song of Solomon is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Praise for the Print Edition

The application and richness of the Gospel is found throughout.

English Churchman

In due time it will no doubt rank alongside such expositions of the Song of Solomon as those of Dr. Gill and Spurgeon’s Most Holy Place. It is a heart-warming book and is highly recommended to our readers.
