I didn’t really intend to set up a web site and put out information to the world about what this little neglected book in the Bible has to say about a relationship between a man and a woman. I wanted to study it and unlock the meaning in it, and then share that with my daughters. It turned out that the meanings weren’t really locked up, but required that I let go of my assumptions that came from the American Dating perspective, and just see what the text has to say.
Girls made me nervous and intimidated me in junior high and high school, and can still have that effect on me. So talking with them about sex, marriage, romance, and the power that is unleashed in love, isn’t my first choice.
But maybe that is why I’m feeling compelled to share what I’ve learned from this book that is written mostly from her perspective. God has a way of making use of our weaknesses and using them for his strength.
The book shares not only the words she says, but also the thoughts and feeling she has. It shows how in the right setting, with the right kind of guy, that she changes from someone who is interested in love and a relationship, into someone who is strong and confident in her body, in her ability to bring contentment to her lover and in her overall outlook on life.
Please make use of the material and resources that we are pulling together on this site to figure out what God says in this book. And don’t discount your ability to read, make observations, examine your experiences and the experiences of others and to determine what you really believe. Then follow that and live a great life, a full and abundant life.
