Old Testament Library: Song of Songs (Exum 2005) — OTL

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: Old Testament Library: Song of Songs (Exum 2005) — OTL
Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press
Author: J. Cheryl Exum

Description

This original commentary foregrounds at every turn the poetic genius of the Song of Songs, one of the most elusive texts of the Hebrew Bible. J. Cheryl Exum locates that genius in the way the Song not only tells but shows its readers that love is strong as death, thereby immortalizing love, as well as in the way the poet explores the nature of love by a mature sensitivity to how being in love is different for the woman and the man. Many long-standing conundrums in the interpretation of the book are offered persuasive solutions in Exum's verse by verse exegesis.

The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.

This commentary volume is available individually, or as part of the following sets:
Old Testament Library Commentary Series (49 Vols.)
Old & New Testament Library Commentary Series (68 Vols.)
