The Song of Songs is redolent with poetic imagery, featuring as it does the love songs of a man and a woman as they explore their relationship. Down the centuries it has often been interpreted either as a sexually-charged love story or an entirely metaphorical imagining of the relationship between God and his people. In this deeply-felt book Charlie Cleverly argues that both interpretations are critical to a true understanding of this book that lies right at the heart of the Bible. If our relationships with one another and with God are not both fully in tune with our humanity, in all its richness, and with our spirituality in its highest form, then we will fall short of all we can be in our lives.
Drawing on a wide range of sources, literary and theological and across the ages, Charlie Cleverly makes the case for a new, rounded understanding of this important book.

This is an excellent book... I had come to it with very high expectations because of the author's reputation, and I was not disappointed... A short review can only begin to convy the quality of this marvellous book, I wholeheartedly recommend its purchase. * The Church Times *
A masterly look at a book some people have seen as a love song, other as description of the relationship between God and his people. * The Church Newspaper *
The author invites the reader to be open in their longing for a full relationship with God... this book provides much food for thought, and could be used either for a house group, or a sermon. * The Reader *
There is much here to challenge and inspire the reader to a deeper intimacy with God. * Preach Magazine *
