Solomon Latte focuses on the love poetry in Song of Solomon. Full of sensuous, sensual imagery, the ancient Hebrew love poetry in this book of the Bible will leave you with a deep appreciation for the beauty of Gods design for human sexuality. Great for groups, couples, or individual study. Group and personal questions are separated so you're not sharing more than you or your spouse want to, yet you can still benefit from group interaction to gain insight into the text. This and all the Coffee Cup Bible Series books contain Monday-through-Friday Bible study questions with devotional thoughts for lighter reading on the weekends.
Solomon Latte is part of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies, a series of Bible studies for women in compact, workbook format that examine the "life and times" of certain Bible characters and the books of the Bible that pertain to them. Each study is to be read over a four-to-six week period, and study sections are broken down into short, daily segments designed to fit reader's busy lifestyles.
Understanding that time is precious, the Coffee Cup Bible Studies are patterned in such a convenient way that they can be read during brief windows of opportunity that allow for meditation and study (breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, etc.). Scripture is provided from the NET Bible (New English Translation), making Bible study convenient for occasions when you can't carry a Bible.
The Song of Solomon (commonly referred to as"The Song of Songs") is a work of poetry. And because it is poetry, author Sandra Glahn treats it as such in her Bible study, Solomon Latte. But not only is Song of Songs a work of poetry; it also is a deeply intimate portrayal of love-so intimate, you might not permit your children to read it if weren't part of the Bible.
In this verse-by-verse study of Song of Solomon, Sandra does not mince words as she examines some of the most explicit writing in Scripture. She also effectively examines how a picture of Christ and his "bride," the Christian, can be seen in this ancient newlywed couple who lived centuries before Christ's birth.
Sandra Glahn is one of a handful of female professors at Dallas Theological Seminary, where she also serves as editor-in-chief of DTS's award-wining magazine, Kindred Spirit. She holds a master of theology degree from DTS and is currently involved in doctoral studies at the the University Texas at Dallas. Sandra is the coauthor of four nonfiction titles and three fiction works, including the Christ mystery/suspense finalist and CBA bestselling medical thriller, Lethal harvest. Sandra has written and taught women's Bible studies at her church since 1994.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a fifth-generation Oregonian transplanted a couple of decades ago into Texas. I believe we need to engage the five senses in our study of God's word. I'm a wife of one husband, mother of one child, and teacher of many students at Dallas Seminary (DTS).I'm working on a PhD in aesthetics (Arts and Humanities) after earning my ThM at DTS. I love Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky and Handel's Messiah.
What was your motivation behind this project? Years ago I envisioned the kind of Bible study I would like...one that allowed active study on weekdays, passive devotionals (aimed at application) on the weekends, small enough to go in a diaper bag, that included the entire Bible text I'd need so I would not have to carry a heavy Bible to the doctor's office with me to study during free minutes. One that lent itself well to both individual and group study. It needed to appeal to more than the visual-only participant. And it shouldn't be written like the writer had a perfect Christian life. It needed to have a binding I could file on my bookshelf but that had a spiral on it so I could write on it without the book flipping open. Voila! The Coffee Cup Bible Series. As for this particular book, I meet many women experiencing frustration in their intimate lives, and I wanted a resource that would help them see God's view of sexual love. The world has hijacked what is ours and I felt it was time to do my part in reclaiming it.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A biblical perspective on the beautiful of love. As a result, I want them to catch a glimpse of the creative, wise Person behind the design.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? When I coauthored Sexual Intimacy in Marriage, I did a lot of research into Song of Solomon, and I kept my enormous files. With the success of that book, I was often asked to talk about sexual love from a biblical perspective. I continued to study and collect stories and examples. Then I took Hebrew at Dallas Theological Seminary, and I found that many views about this book that were circulating in the popular market could not, in many cases, be substantiated by the text I was reading. (We used to joke, saying, "I hate it when the text gets in the way of what I want to believe.") So I had to dig deeper. My studies in aesthetics at the Univ. of Texas at Dallas helped me see that drama as an art form did not exist at the time of Solomon, and stories often did not have clear beginnings, middles, and endings until about the time of Aristotle. I went back to the biblical text with this understanding and it came alive like I'd never seen it. Often people see Song of Songs as a chronology with courtship, marriage, and maturing love, yet courtship was not the way marriage happened in the ancient Near East. Young men and women then had arranged marriages, and often met on the wedding day. If we read the first few chapters as happening in marriage rather than as a "dating" section, it tells us much more about marital love than we often see.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: My web site at www.aspire2.com has additional info that relates to each study. I have links to art relating to Song of Songs as well as other resources. I've also written on infertility and contraception in association with an ob/gyn and the Christian Medical Assn. The biblical view of life and sexuality has ramifications in many fields of study.
