Moody Press, 1977, 2nd printing trade paperback with 96 pages. Size: approx. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2". The Song of Solomon has been misunderstood and neglected by Bible expositors. In this book, Mason brings a unique perspective to the Songs and interesting insights into these love lyrics. Dr. Mason believes that it is not only a picture of God and Israel, and, much more, a picture of Christ and His Bride, the Church, but also a historical love story about Solomon and his wife, teh Shulamite. He explores two basic plot theories, then uses the one he believes to be correct as the basis for his study. In the process, he finds many New Testament foreshadowings in Solomon's Song.
