The Song of Solomon & The Pleasures of Marriage


The Song of Solomon & The Pleasures of Marriage

Here is a little poetic reflection I wrote after starting our study last year on the Song of Solomon via Steve Kreloff’s incredibly helpful exposition The Pleasures of Marriage.

You will find your study of and delight in God’s Word (and each other) greatly deepened. Let us know if you are reading this book and how it has helped your marriage!

and joyful sacrifice

amidst the decay

of a world unbelieving…
