Song of Solomon
by Paige Patterson
“In a world awash with the debris of broken homes, crushed spirits, and fractured dreams, God’s people need the message of the Song of Solomon as never before.”
First written 30 years ago, these words that open this volume are perhaps more true now than then. Paige Patterson examines this eight-chapter book verse-by-verse, attempting to pierce through the veil of misinterpretations in order to expose the truths that God has in store for readers of this text, characterized by one commentator as “the most obscure book in the Old Testament.” In so doing, Patterson reveals the surprising clarity and relevance of this centuries-old text to modern-day Christians, making this a valuable resource for pastors and laypersons alike.
