Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Christian theology, Christian life & practice, Christian aspects of sexuality, gender & relations

Charlie Cleverly explores the imagery of THE SONG OF SONGS, the Bible's pivotal book, digging deep into both the sexual and spiritual interpretations of its rich poetry.

THE SONG OF SONGS is redolent with poetic imagery, featuring as it does the love songs of a man and a woman as they explore their relationship. Down the centuries it has often been interpreted either as a sexually-charged love story or an entirely metaphorical imagining of the relationship between God and his people. In this deeply-felt book Charlie Cleverly argues that both interpretations are critical to a true understanding of this book that lies right at the heart of the Bible. If our relationships with one another and with God are not both fully in tune with our humanity, in all its richness, and with our spirituality in its highest form, then we will fall short of all we can be in our lives.

Drawing on a wide range of sources, literary and theological and across the ages, Charlie Cleverly makes the case for a new, rounded understanding of this important book.
