What the Bible Says About Love, Sex and Marriage by David Jeremiah combines a natural (or literal) interpretation of the Song of Solomon combined with practical and insightful tips for married couples. This is not a deep textual study for those looking to unpack the Jewish history or various interpretations of the Song. Jeremiah plainly and unapologetically presents the Song as the story of Solomon and the Shulamite woman that progresses from courtship to wedding to honeymoon and on into married life. While certain verses in the text get glanced over, Jeremiah does an outstanding job of providing solid and useful principles for married (and dating) couples. Even if one has a good handle on his own interpretation of the Song – or perhaps doesn’t even believe the Song should be read from a natural perspective, the teaching provided by Jeremiah is in itself worth the read. This paperback would make a good addition to any couple’s library.
