Item Description...
The Song of Solomon, as its Hebrew title indicates, is "the best of songs." In it we hear the passionate melody of romantic love. But whose love is described? Is it a couple's love for each other, God's love for Israel or Christ's love for the church? This Old Testament book has fascinated and perplexed interpreters for centuries. They have felt uncomfortable--even embarrassed--when confronted with its strange and erotic imagery."The Song is a celebration of the nature of humanity---male and female created in God's image for mutal support and enjoyment. There is nothing here of the aggressive male and the reluctant or victimized female. They are one in their desires because their desires are God-given." So writes Lloyd Carr in this introduction and commentary to the Song of Solomon. With his own unique style, Carr skillfully explains the meaning of this ancient love story in a way that can be clearly grasped and applied for Christians living in today's world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Yes, it's about what you think it is  Jun 25, 2004
Carr outlines just about all the nouns in the Song of Solomon, and ties them to their (...)connotations in the ancient near East. Nard is an aphrodisiac, "Bed" in Chapter 1 has an exclusively (...)connotation, "Dodi" (Hebrew for Lover) means, well, Lover, certain body parts mentioned are sexual euphemisms...This book is nasty. Good. Praise God. This isn't some cheesy metaphor about God and His relationship to Man, it's about ripping off your spouse's clothes and going at it like stags or wildebeasts or horses in Pharoah's chariots...

Now, having said that, the metaphors and descriptions w/in the Song of Solomon itself are not only lost on us, but are hardly erotic or complementary in the 21st century. A young stag leaping over hills?!? Oh, be still my throbbing heart! If I compared some girl to a flock of goats, I'd have a high pitch voice for about a month. However, that's not the point. The message of Song of Solomon trumps the medium. God wanted us to enjoy his creation, and (...)is a pretty darn important part of creation. Read Carr's commentary. Do it now!

 
Short, Solid, Sweet Song of Solomon  May 21, 2001
G. Lloyd Carr's study of the Song of Songs (Canticles, Song of Solomon) does a great job of rescuing it from overly symbolic interpretations. Instead, says Carr, the Song is about just what it appears to be about. Sex, romance, and love. Carr unpacks the various images of flowers, gardens, grape vines, and spices, putting them into the context of Old Testament Israel's culture. He also forthrightly explores the explicit imagery of breasts, thighs, and sexual expression the book displays. Carr's book is short, pithy, but packed with enough information for the scholar. Written in the mid-1980s, it still seems fresh and frank and wonderfully edifying. My only reason for not giving five stars? I wanted it longer!
