Many teachers approach the Song of Solomon as an allegory for God's love of the church or of Israel, but Dr. Bill Creasy discusses this work as it is on its surface: an erotic love poem. Listening to biblical scholar Dr. Creasy's analysis of these lyrical poems between a woman and her lover is great fun. In this particular edition of the Logos Bible Study series, Dr. Creasy is on fire. His jokes will make listeners laugh out loud. Much more than standard bible study, this live lecture will be hard to turn off.
As Proverbs fits squarely into the genre of "advice to a son" literature, so the Song of Songs fits squarely into the genre of erotic love poetry. Traditionally read as an allegory of God's love for Israel or of Christ's love for the Church, Logos Bible Study's Dr. Bill Creasy explores the Song of Songs as what it is, first and foremost: an erotic love poem written by Solomon in the final years of his life, a poem tinged with deep regret and longing.

Unlike Creasy's other Bible studies this one was almost entirely literary, with no more than a passing reference to its religious interpretation. To get the most of this study you will need to invest in a more mainstream companion text.
This was riveting and the explanating was enlightening. I have been trying to understand it for a while now and am glad I found this.
