We like the fearlessness of his criticism. A poetic heart has enabled him often, we think, to catch the true spirit of the exquisite original. In fine, we do not know any book in English that gives so correct a view of this precious part of Scripture.
—The Presbyterian Quarterly Review
The excellent work of Dr. Burrowes is specially fitted to remove prejudices of men of taste against the Song of Solomon, as the medium of spiritual communion between the soul and Christ. We welcome it as a welcome contribution to us from our transatlantic brethren.
George Burrowes was born in Trenton, New Jersey. Burrowes was a professor of Latin and Greek languages, a professor of biblical instruction, and a professor of Hebrew and Old Testament Literature at San Francisco Theological Seminary.
