- The Song of Solomon: An Introduction and Commentary. Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries. Carr, G. Lloyd.
“The Song of Solomon, as its Hebrew title indicates, is “the best of songs.” In it 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.”The Song is a celebration of the nature of humanity—male and female created in God’s image for mutal support and enjoyment. There is nothing here of the aggressive male and the reluctant or victimized female. They are one in their desires because their desires are God-given.” So writes Lloyd Carr in this introduction and commentary to the Song of Solomon. With his own unique style, Carr skillfully explains the meaning of this ancient love story in a way that can be clearly grasped and applied for Christians living in today’s world.” -Amazon.com
