His Desire Is for Me tells the story of the two lovers who inspired the greatest love song ever written—the Song of Songs, from the Old Testament. Viewed by some as a rather obscure book in the Bible, the Song of Songs is the tender tale about a monarch and a maiden; a king and his captivating bride. With eyes to see, it is truly a book that reveals the passionate, intimate, and jealous love that God has for his people. Blending fiction, commentary, and 30-days of devotions, His Desire Is for Me gives you bite-sized portions of the Song of Songs to savor, feast and meditate upon, experience and enjoy. Unlike other commentaries, author Bob Emery expands it as a daily devotional so that, along with prayer and meditation, you will delight in its spiritual content. This exceptional combination of story, study, and prayer sets the table for you, in your quiet times, to have your own personal encounters with God. His Desire Is for Me reveals the different stages a believer goes through on the road to spiritual maturity, as his or her love for the Lord grows from an initial love, to an increasing love, and finally unfolds into a mature love. This book will help you understand how our Heavenly King woos us, wins us, and draws us to Himself. Adding to the uniqueness of this blend of commentary and devotional, Emery has also provided a fictional story portraying the relationship between Solomon and the Shulammite based on what is known about them from the Song of Songs and other Biblical and historical references. In a fresh way, this puts flesh and blood on the spiritual truths and principals contained in the Song. Throughout the 30-day journey you will come to believe, with conviction, that God does love you with an unfailing love, and that His desire truly is for you!
This is the most interesting commentary I have read! It can be read as a devotional or you can use it as a commentary to interpret the Songs of Solomon. Either way it is a great way to dive into this book of the Bible.
This book will also keep you inspired, as well as educate you in one of the books that few have written about. Everyday will open a new insight to the deep love our Lord has for us, it will encourage you and help you grow every time you read it.
