Praise for the Print Edition

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.

—Moody Stuart
