These two books of Wisdom Literature are vitally important for Christians who live in a world confused about the meaning of life and of love. In the Book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon (“the Preacher”) warns us to avoid a futile life of selfish ambition and to live in obedience to the commandments of God, who will bring every act into judgment. Then, in the Song of Solomon, he teaches us about the virtues of love and building a thriving marriage relationship. Lessons from this book cover a broad range of relationship issues, from romance, faithfulness, and commitment to conflict resolution.
Through careful research, Dr. Denny Petrillo has unpacked the meaning of these two books. While conversant with other approaches, he has provided us with a viable understanding of Solomon’s writings that demonstrates a great respect for the integrity of God’s Word and presents us with valuable lessons for our time.
