Song of Songs (Guyon)
Song of Songs: Reflections on the Deeper Christian Life through Song of Solomon
"The moment you receive Christ, you receive all you need to live and enjoy the Christian life. Christ within you is the fullness of God. What I am suggesting in this commentary is not an experience that you need to have. No, I am explaining that your spiritual life is a journey toward Christ possessing you more completely."
Jeanne Guyon, Song of Songs
The greatest love story ever written, the Song of Solomon describes the emotional, unfolding story of the Bridegroom and His bride. In Song of Songs, Jeanne Guyon shows how the song of a young maiden, fervently in love with her suitor, becomes a powerful allegory of every believer's relationship with Christ. Without any embarrassment for King Solomon's intimate portrayal of the lovers, she explores:
- The greatness of God's love;
- How trials can become blessings;
- True surrender to God's will in your life;
- Finding God's favor in your life;
- Learning to rest in His presence.
After writing this commentary, Jeanne Guyon was sent to the infamous Bastille prison for presuming to know the almighty God in an intimate way. May that same holy "presumption" draw you to His heart as you read this book!
