Publisher's Description

This original commentary foregrounds at every turn the poetic genius of the Song of Songs, one of the most elusive texts of the Hebrew Bible. J. Cheryl Exum locates that genius in the way the Song not only tells but shows its readers that love is strong as death, thereby immortalizing love, as well as in the way the poet explores the nature of love by a mature sensitivity to how being in love is different for the woman and the man. Many long-standing conundrums in the interpretation of the book are offered persuasive solutions in Exum's verse by verse exegesis.

The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.

    This review was written for .
    While not suited to all readers, this scholarly commentary if full of important details and insights. It is probably one of the three best commentaries that I can think of ... in no particular order, Glickman's Song for Lovers, Hess' Song of Songs (Baker), and Exum's commentary here.

    Why? Regardless of Exum's view of authorship, her attention to the details of the text is exceptional. She brings forth well reasoned, well supported insights into what passages and phrases mean and then clarifies the possible range of meanings. Very beneficial.
