Item Description...
Overview
The Song of Songs is a classical work of ancient literature that continues to be read, studied and prayed the world over. Essentially it is a collection of sensual love poems. Its inclusion in the holy scriptures can be surprising and even shocking to some. So what is the depth and meaning behind this ancient masterpiece? How can we read it and understand it today? Dianne Bergant offers a spiritual reading of these love poems of Scriptures from a literal perspective. She leads the reader to see how its issues and concerns are often our own. She emphasizes the beauty and goodness of love and how the fruits of this love lead to a modern, wholesome spirituality that respects others and works for their good. Moreover, Bergant shows how the Song of Songs is particularly sensitive to issues of race or ethnic origin, class and gender. It likewise respects ecology recognizing that we are part of a larger community.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A selection of poems in celebration mutual love  Jun 5, 2002
Deftly edited by David W. Cotter, The Song Of Songs: Studies In Hebrew Narrative & Poetry by Dianne Bergant (Professor of Biblical Studies and Director of the Joint Doctor of Ministry Program, Catholic Theological Union) is an exhaustive and meticulous analysis of the Song of Songs, viewing it as a selection of poems in celebration mutual love. Special attention is paid to the careful matter of translating the poetic verse from Hebrew, and the cultural context of the poetry. The Song Of Songs is strongly recommended as an invaluable, serious, college-level analysis for scholars of Biblical Studies in general, and Hebrew narrative and poetry in particular.
