Song of Songs / Tremper Longman III.

By: Longman, Tremper
Material type: TextTextSeries: The New international commentary on the Old TestamentPublisher: Grand Rapids, Mich. : William B. Eerdmans, c2001Description: xvi, 238 p. ; 25 cmISBN: 0802825435 (alk. paper)Subject(s): Bible. Song of Solomon -- CommentariesDDC classification: 223/.9077 LOC classification: BS1485.53 | L66 2001Review: "Relationships are a wonderful, mysterious, often elusive, sometimes painful part of the human experience. The most intimate of all human relationships, according to the Bible, is that between a husband and a wife. It is not a surprise, therefore, that there is a book of the Bible, the Song of Songs, that focuses on this relationship. What is surprising is how little attention is given to the Song of Songs by scholars, by the church, and by readers of the Bible. With this volume, however, Tremper Longman III has written the finest commentary to date on the Song of Songs, unpacking for modern people what this ancient love poem says about the male-female relationship - and, by analogy, about God's love for his people."--BOOK JACKET.
