The Song of Solomon Revealed by Owen Sypher
From Goodreads.com : The Bible is a spiritual book that can be viewed from a historical viewpoint, and it's full of allegories to help people visualize and understand God's Word. Using the keys of understanding found in the Bible, Song of Solomon Revealed sheds light on the often misunderstood book of Song of Solomon, a book of allegories that takes the natural to the spiritual; it's an allegory of Jesus and His bride, and a book of historical value. Song of Solomon Revealed eloquently explains the spiritual meaning of this book, backed up by the scripture, and reveals how the Song of Solomon applies to your life today.
My Take: To be perfectly honest with you I did not finish this book. I found it a bit hard to follow and I felt that the author at times was perhaps trying to hard to make things fit his interpretation of things. I do know that the book is an allegory but sometimes what is said is just that what it says not some deep meaning that must be explained with seven other scriptures and those are a stretch to explain. I had my husband take a look at the book also and he came to the same conclusions I did. I will try to read this book again several months down the road and update this review if I come to any new conclusions. This was the authors first book and may be helped with a bit more editing. You may get something out of this book if you are into really deep theological discussions. I am a simple theology person.
I received a review copy of this book from Pump Up Your book in exchange for my honest opinion.
