How do you see God, really? As holy? Distant? Demanding? Unjust? Unfeeling?
The Song of Songs—or Song of Solomon—is a tiny book in the heart of the Old Testament with a big message: God may not be who you think he is.
While many people view the Song as a kind of marriage primer, Senyard and Pepper take a different approach. They dare readers to engage with the book as poetry—and in so doing, risk encountering the healing power hidden within its verses.
The Kiss of God unpacks the scandalous story of a king so smitten with his bride that at times, he can hardly even speak. Who is she? Where does she come from? And what does he see in her? You might be surprised to find out.
Deeply personal and highly readable, this book invites readers to find themselves within one of history’s most beloved texts.
