I've never read a more complete study of the Song of Solomon and how it relates to love, marriage, and sex than I did in this book. Jeremiah breaks down the book practically verse by verse to demonstrate God's desire for husband and wife, i.e. the family. Through evaluating and following the budding relationship between Solomon and the Shulamite, couples can truly find the in's and out's of love. Jeremiah perfectly points out the stages of the book, that is, courting, relationship. marriage, honeymoon, the first fight, the resolution, the vacation getaway, and the continuation of the relationship into maturity. If you've ever read the Song of Solomon and are wondering how you missed all of that, you wouldn't be alone. Jeremiah does an amazing job at pointing it out and then providing wisdom and how to apply it in our marriages today.
This is a must read in my opinion and definitely a book I'll be referring back to for personal reasons as well as professional ones. I'd like to think of myself as pretty courageous and in your face, but I'm not sure I'm ready to do as Dr. Jeremiah did in his church and preach through the Song of Solomon on Sunday mornings. But hey, with me, you just don't ever know!
