Description

Poetry is the language of love. The Songs of Solomon are no different as we read these beautiful cameos of the intimate relationship between the King and his lover. These were the song of songs which were often sung to God in temple worship with a realisation that these songs spoke of God's love towards his chosen people. For Christians through the ages these songs point to Christ and his love towards his own ransomed and redeemed people. Indeed in New Testament Scripture the analogy is often used of Christ and His church as the Bridegroom and His bride. It speaks of restoration and reconciliation. Through the contributions of the daughter of Jerusalem, we begin to get a sense of the joy of fellowship. In this devotional work we too will learn what it is like to have daily contact with Jesus, the lover of our souls as pictured in Songs of Solomon.show more

Review quote

""Deep in feeling and wide in application, this book shows a preacher's heart as well as a preacher's art. It makes no apology for opening up the Song as a commentary on the intimacy that ought to characterise our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ."--Iain D. Campbell (1953-2017) Minister, Point Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewisshow more

Review Text

""Deep in feeling and wide in application, this book shows a preacher's heart as well as a preacher's art. It makes no apology for opening up the Song as a commentary on the intimacy that ought to characterise our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ." ~ Iain D. Campbell (Minister, Point Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis)"With Malcolm Maclean we are in safe hands. To be sure, his treatment of the Song extends interpretation into elaboration and application, and he will not carry every reader with him all the time, but everything he writes is true to the full biblical revelation of God in Christ, of the marvel of his love for us, and of our often faltering walk with him." ~ Alec Motyer (Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer)"a sweet yet sober tour of this garden of divine love. He walks us through the Song devotionally, moving believers to long for deeper communion with the Son of God. Simultaneously, this book will encourage backsliders to run back into His loving arms." ~ Joel R. Beeke (President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan)"Malcolm MacLean takes us up into the rarefied heights and gives us new vistas of the beauty and excellence of Christ." ~ David Meredith (Minister, Smithton Free Church of Scotland, Inverness)"a powerful reminder of the glory of Christ's matchless love, and provides strong medicine for the soul." ~ Sharon James (Conference speaker and author Leamington Spa, England)"Malcolm Maclean's lucid and warm commentary on the book led me into some royal communion with the King of kings. It will help every Christian reader to rest in His love and say with grander assurance, 'This is my beloved and this is my friend." ~ Geoff Thomas (Pastor, Aberystwyth Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales )" rich, powerful, and incisive" ~ Peter Barnes (Pastor, Author, Lecturer, Revesby Presbyterian Church, Revesby, New South Wales, Australia)show more
