The Five Senses of Romantic Love: God's Plan for Exciting Sexual Intimacy in Marriage
Laing takes a literal approach to the Song of Solomon, examining it as an encouraging text written from God to married couples as a model for the joys of marital intimacy. Laing has authored his book for married couples only, so if you are single you should wait to read it.Laing writes enthusiastically on the subject, expounding upon Gods design for love within marriage; the joy and pleasure He intends for our spouses and us.Using the Song of Solomon Laing provides practical ways to enhance our love life through engaging each of our five senses. His concern is rather to aid married couples through practical, openhearted suggestions to add to, and increase the delights of marriage. His words are friendly and kind, never pushy or insistent, and he is fairly discreet in his use of language throughout the book nothing explicitly graphic or crude here.As a woman, I enjoyed reading his frank and open perspective as a man, both on the Song, and on what men appreciate and long for within a marriage. The Five Senses of Romantic Love fills an important niche in Christian literature equipping married believers for love. I particularly recommend this work for Christians who may mistakenly believe that sex within marriage is an unpleasant duty that is even somehow displeasing to God. Readers interested in a literal, joyous, and practical approach to applying Gods wisdom from the Song of Solomon to their marriage will find this offering a unique treasure. Excellent devotional reading for bedtime, couples will benefit from reading this book together.

The Five Senses of Romantic Love is a sparkling and self-explanatory book. The author, Sam Laing, showcases the Song of Songs to discuss the godly marriage sexual relationship from the standpoint of sensory perception. This is a witty and very frank book for married couples. The easy to absorb chapters take one sense (sound, sight, touch, taste, smell), and provide scripture to support how the marriage relationship is supposed to be.This book will encourage you, teach you, make you blush, and make you a better spouse. It also has the ability to really shake up your marriage for the better.
