Song of SolomonThis book is perenially one of the most misunderstood and perplexing of the Bible. The Song of Solomon is certainly not for the squeamish, but is also should not be ignored. In this commentary, G. Lloyd Carr presents the "best of songs" as a adventerous passion and romance. In his own way, Carr illuminates the book and skillfully explains the meaning of the ancient text without embarrassment at its erotic overtones.Tyndale Old Testament Commentary SeriesThese commentaries are designed to help the readerunderstand what the biblical text says and what it means.It is therefore an exegetical commentary, not expository. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The goal throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.
