The Song of Solomon has often been a fenced portion of God’s Word into which believers have rarely ventured. But in neglecting this book of sacred Scripture, many have missed out on the beautiful reality of God’s desire and purpose—to have deep, loving, and intense fellowship with us.
Hudson Taylor, noted Christian missionary to China, penned this small book to unfold the symbols and imagery found in Solomon’s love poem. In so doing, he sets forth in plain language the deep truths of the believer’s personal union with the Lord to foster a greater adoration for, and appreciation toward, the Bridegroom, whom the bride comes to understand more and more and grows in love toward. The vivid language of Solomon sets forth the story of two lovers—the Lord and His Church—who yearn for each other, who praise each other, who adore each other with greater intensity the more they are in union and communion.
Here is a must-read for any believer who wishes to understand better the deep love between Christ, the Bridegroom, and the Church, His bride.
