Product Description

Song of SolomonThis book is perenially one of the most misunderstood and perplexing of the Bible. The Song of Solomon is certainly not for the squeamish, but is also should not be ignored. In this commentary, G. Lloyd Carr presents the "best of songs" as a adventerous passion and romance. In his own way, Carr illuminates the book and skillfully explains the meaning of the ancient text without embarrassment at its erotic overtones.Tyndale Old Testament Commentary SeriesThese commentaries are designed to help the readerunderstand what the biblical text says and what it means.It is therefore an exegetical commentary, not expository. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The goal throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

Publisher's Description

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 mutual 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. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.
