God thinks highly of the sexual union. After all, He created it. Professor Dan Allender walks us through the Song of Solomon, beginning with a description of Solomon and the first inklings of desire. What can we learn from this unique biblical book? Plenty, according to Dan, who shares some practical advice for contemporary husbands and wives.
