The Book of Song of Songs (2nd Edition): Divine Romance (Passion Translation) (Paperback)
Breathtaking and beautiful, the sweetest song of all ages unveils the Shulamite journey in the form of an anointed allegory. It becomes a journey that not only describes the divine parable penned by Solomon, but also a journey that longing lovers of Jesus will find as their very own. Love will always find a language to express itself. The inspired Song of Songs is a work of art. It is a melody sung from the heart of Jesus Christ for his longing bride. Its storyline is full of symbols and subtle art forms which, without interpretation, are often missed or overlooked. The Passion Translation expresses this storyline in a way that will help you encounter the heart of God in greater measure. The Holy Spirit has hidden within the Song of Songs an amazing story--a story of how Jesus makes his bride beautiful and holy by casting out her fear with perfect love. This sent-from-heaven revelation is waiting to be received with all its intensity and power to unlock the deepest places of our hearts.
DR. BRIAN SIMMONS is the lead translator of The Passion Translation(R). The Passion Translation (TPT) is a heart-level translation that uses Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts to express God's fiery heart of love to this generation, merging the emotion and life-changing truth of God's Word. The hope for TPT is to trigger inside every reader an overwhelming response to the truth of the Bible and to reveal the deep mysteries of the Scriptures in the love language of God, the language of the heart. Brian is currently translating the Old Testament. His most recent releases include Genesis: Firstfruits and Isaiah: The Vision. After a dramatic conversion to Christ in 1971, Brian and his wife, Candice, answered the call of God to leave everything behind and become missionaries to unreached peoples. Taking their three children to the tropical rain forest of Central America, they planted churches for many years with the Paya-Kuna people group. Dr. Simmons established leadership for the churches that Jesus birthed, and, having been trained in linguistics and Bible translation principles, assisted with the translation of the Paya-Kuna New Testament. After their ministry overseas, Brian and Candice returned to North America, where Brian began to passionately work toward helping people encounter the risen Christ. He and his wife planted numerous ministries, including a dynamic church in New England (U.S.). They also established Passion & Fire Ministries, under which they travel full time as Bible teachers in service of local churches throughout the world. Brian is the author of numerous books, Bible studies, and devotionals that help readers encounter God's heart and experience a deeper revelation of God as our Bridegroom King, including Throne Room Prayer, The Sacred Journey, Prayers on Fire, The Divine Romance, and The Vision. Brian and Candice have been married for more than forty-eight years and have three children, six grandchildren, and three precious great-grandchildren. Their passion is to live as loving examples of a spiritual father and mother to this generation.
