In the Song of Solomon, 'the best of songs', we hear the passionate melody of romantic love - but whose love is described? Is it a couple's love for each other, God's love for Israel, or Christ's love for the church? This Old Testament book has fascinated and perplexed interpreters for centuries. They have felt uncomfortable - even embarrassed - when confronted with its strange and erotic imagery. With his own unique style, Lloyd Carr skilfully explains the meaning of this ancient love story in a way that can be clearly grasped and applied by Christians living in today's world.
