I got this book thinking it would be a great aid to studying the Song of Solomon. I now understand the intent of the book was more designed to examine sexual issues between husbands and wives using the Song of Solomon as a launching pad for discussion. My understanding of the Song of Solomon has shifted over the years and I have come to a different historical perspective on the Song of Solomon which makes my view of the book come in conflict with some of the authors’ interpretation and main points. None-the-less I still see how this book has some value for couples who may be looking for some insight into how God designed sex for marriage.
The authors do a great job of illustrating their perspective of the text and relating it to issues faced by husbands and wives today. Much of the insight and perspective shared on sex inside the book are not new. The book does a great job of illustrating the perspective of husbands and wives and how to navigate some of the more difficult issues. Over all Intimacy Ignited: Conversations Couple to Couple: Fire Up Your Sex Life with the Song of Solomon is a good book filled with great perspective and counsel for couples on sexual issues. However I would offer one word of caution… If you are not married, don’t read the book…. It really is written for married couples.
