discussion starters that help participants apply God’s Word to their daily lives.
One of the most beautiful books in the Bible, Song of Solomon is also perhaps one of the most difficult to interpret for people of faith. However, the themes of love and longing, and expectation and fulfillment take on a wondrous cast and hue when seen as a reflection of God's love for His people. This book will teach you about:
the power and beauty of physical love within the clearly defined boundaries that God has established.
the reflection of Christ's love for His Church, through faithful, human marriage.
the consummation of God's love for us in Chirst, to be celebrated at the marriage feast of the Lamb.
