Addresses on the Song of Solomon


Loizeaux Brothers 1933

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Culled from his own notes on his series of lectures on the Song of Solomon to the Moody Memorial Church in Chicago, Ironside reworks his addresses into this singular commentary. In his introduction, Ironside evaluates competing interpretations of the Song of Solomon—the extent to which the book is about literal love between two individuals or a symbolic love between Yahweh and Israel or Christ and the church. The rest of the book is devoted to chapter-by-chapter analysis of the text, in which Ironside blurs the boundary between exegesis and exposition, weaving into his interpretation poetry, hymnody, and examples from the contemporary era. He takes care to note the themes from Song of Solomon which appear in the New Testament, and links the book to key themes of the Gospel narrative and significant moments in Christ’s ministry.

About Harry Allen Ironside

Harry Allen Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
