In the latest edition to the NICOT, Longman provides a detailed introduction and exegesis of the Song of Songs. Reviewing the history of this intriguing book-which he calls a powerful analogy to God's relationship with his people-Longman also adopts an anthrological approach as he discusses the song in light of Near Eastern literature. 304 pages, hardcover from Eerdmans. Basic Overview of the NICOT series: Theologically conservative evangelical Scholarly but Non-Technical(no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew needed-all original language use is transliterated and details of textual criticism and translation appear in the footnotes) Written from an exegetical perspective but contains lots of historical, liguistic, and theological information Uses a section-by-section format based on the author's own translation Geared for scholars, serious Bible students, and pastors
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 no 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 Tremper Longman III unpacks for modern people what this ancient love poem says about the male-female relationship -- and, by analogy, about God's love for his people.Longman's superb study begins with a thorough introduction to the Song of Songs and its background. Longman discusses the book's title, authorship, date, literary style, language, structure, cultural milieu, and theological content. He also canvasses the long history of interpretation of the Song of Songs, a history too often characterized by repression of the text. In the commentary itself, Longman structures the Song of Songs according to its twenty-three poetic units and explains its message verse by verse. The exposition is made clearer by Longman's adoption of an anthropological approach to the text and by his frequent comparisons of the Song of Songs with other ancient Near Eastern literature.Learned yet highly accessible, innovative yet fully informed by past scholarship, this commentary shows the beautiful Song of Songs to be a timeless celebration of human love and sexuality.
