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. He also canvasses the long history of interpretation of the Song of Songs, a history too often characterised 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.

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.
