Song of Solomon: A 12-Week Study

By Jay Harvey, General Editor J. I. Packer, Series edited by Dane C. Ortlund, Lane T. Dennis

The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible.

The book of Song of Solomon recounts the romantic love between a young man and a young woman, written in the form of poems. The depiction of marriage in this book—characterized by beauty, passion, difficulty, and commitment—offers modern readers a divine perspective on human love.

This 12-week study highlights the practical wisdom embedded in this poem and its place in the larger biblical story, reflecting God’s love toward his people and offering a much-needed message for our world today.
