For many years the "Song of Solomon" was a neglected book. The anatomical references, I guess, made many think this book was "inappropriate" for church use. Funny, it is in the Bible. And traditionally the Jews read it every Passover! (Well, maybe not the first several hundred Passovers, but once written it was a staple of Passover.)
Fortunately the "veil" seems to have been lifted from the book. Several books in recent years have been written on the Song. I myself have preached a sermon on the Song as well as taught it in Bible class twice.

When a devotional starts out by telling you to wash some grapes, bring them to the bathtub, draw a bath, light some candles, and climb in the tub together, let's just say it gets my attention.

These devotions speak to all aspects of your relationship with your beloved, and all of them start with some sort of activity intended to illustrate the...
Based on the write-up, I was excited to start this book with my husband during our daily devotion time. However, after just a few chapters, we felt disappointed.
