Not many Christians talk about sex, which is disheartening, because God created it. I don't understand how people in church expect others to live by God's standards when they make God's standards seem unattractive. Not David Jeremiah, though. He eloquently explores what God intended for love, marriage and sex, using the Song of Solomon (or Song of Songs) as the anchor. David Jeremiah is tasteful but spares no shortcuts with the sexually charged book of the bible, which is inspired by the Holy Spirit, after all. This is truly a beautiful book on a beautiful subject.
Reviewed by Brenda Ballard for Readers Favorite Sex and marriage are probably not subject matters most of us would seek in the Bible. It seems naughty, not spiritual, as per what we might have been raised to believe. In fact, the idea of seeking colorful scenes in the Bible is enough to make most gasp. Solomon was a passionate man whose experiences are (now I know) in the Song of Solomon. The author, using his extensive knowledge of the Bible, guides the reader/listener through the book and explains how God sees about this subject and what He desires for us in our life. Seemingly written for the benefit of marriage or perhaps pre-marriage counseling, the book is informative and open for conversation. It encourages discussion and referencing which might loosen up a group who would perhaps otherwise be very uncomfortable with the subject matter. The author's tone is that of everyday -- it is not restrictive or exudes a taboo thing. I listened to this book as an audio option and found that I enjoyed it much more than what I initially anticipated. More than once I went back to the beginning of a track to listen more closely when there were questions or when maybe I didn't quite agree with what was being said. For the most part, I generally found clarification and agreement which intrigued me further to pull out my own Bible when I got home and look up the scriptures myself. This book is highly recommended for those considering marriage, those who are curious about the subject matter or those who never realized that this was in there!
This book is great its really helped me too see Gods plqn for ,y marriage and my relationship with christ
I've been married for more than five decades--yes, we've celebrated our fiftieth anniversary--so I thought that this book wouldn't have much to offer me. Boy, was I wrong! I appreciate the way the author clarifies points that I would have missed on my own. For instance, on page 39, he explains the use of the word, "filly" used by Solomon in 1:9. Again, looking at The Song of Solomon, chapter 4, Solomon praises his love's eyes, hair, teeth, lips, mouth, temples, neck, and breasts (152-157). Expanded explanations help me understand the compliments. More than a Bible study, more than a look at love relationships, more than a guide to a successful marriage, this volume is one I would recommend to engaged couples, newlyweds, and to all married no matter the length of time. In addition, troubled marriages and even those tetering on divorce will find wisdom in this book. Thank you to FaithWords for my copy.
