Rosemary Beyert4 Stars Out Of 5August 24, 2007Rosemary BeyertWell, here's the thing. We read this line very carefully, the one that said the private questions were in Italics. I think you all have it backwards, because the normal questions about the versus were in italics & the real personal questions were in standard print. We're enjoying the book anyhow. We had our study last night & it was enlightening for some of us, revealing for others & overall interesting to all. It was funny however, that when we were reading Saturday out loud the guy at Starbucks decided to play Barry White over the outside speakers. We could hardly finish reading we were laughing so hard. So thank you for an interesting bible study, we are enjoying it.
Emily1 Stars Out Of 5June 20, 2006EmilyWere going through this study on the Song of Solomon in our Womans group and they are loving it! I keep on hearing comments like, I needed this class 55 years ago. And, Our young people need to hear this. This study contains a frank discussion on sex-done-right from Gods perspective, that will not only challenge marriages, but also unlock some mysteries in the Song of Solomon that may have been previously perplexing to us. I took a masters-level class on the Song of Solomon and this study still gave me insights I have not heard before. A great resource.
A reader5 Stars Out Of 5May 10, 2006A readerSolomon Latte is definitely not your grandmother's devotional book! Glahn approaches unpacking the book as a genre of poetry. Coupling her understanding of poetic styles of the day and her expertise in the field of sexual intimacy in marriage, Solomon Latte is packed full of insight. An added plus- specific questions designed for private reflection, and more general questions intended for group discussion. I did this study with a group of 18 women and Glahn's questions always gave us plenty to talk about while never once making us feel as though we'd crossed the line of appropriateness. Sex is a topic not many are comfortable discussing in church, and Solomon Latte is a much needed breath of fresh air!
Reader from TX5 Stars Out Of 5April 26, 2006Reader from TXAgain in Solomon Latte, Sandra Glahn has taken a portion of scripture and compiled a six-week study that will enrich, encourage, challenge, and comfort the Bible student's life. Glahn's insight into history, customs, language, and culture helped me to read through Song of Songs with an understanding like never before. I highly recommend all four of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies and am looking forward to seeing what comes next!

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.
