Solomon's Secret is just
what it says; it is Solomon's song. It is a
prophetic work and a personal tribute. He tells
a story that on the surface appears to be simply
a statement of love between a Shepherd Boy and
a Shulamite girl. Because he was a man of tremendous
intellect and wisdom, he uses the medium of
a story to offer to God his own heart. This
Song, which belongs to Solomon, will be one
among millions of Song, both written and to
be written. Every believer will have his own
version as his own life unfolds and enfolds
with the life of Jesus.
In heaven, Revelation
states, there will be a new song sung to the Lamb.
That song may be a combined chorus of identical words
and phrases, or one penned by each believer. However
it is to be sung, it will be a song of the Bride to
the Bridegroom. It will be personal. It will be filled
with meaning that only the two who have been made
"one" will understand. This song will reflect
the experiences of grace and love known only to them
both. Jesus and His bride will sing to each other.
Unique as it may sound, this book houses just such
a song. It is a song from the bride to her lover and
from her lover to her. It is a dialogue.
This pioneering study reviews primary, secondary,
and tertiary aspects of the Song of Solomon's message.
It highlights the two main characters of the drama
and focuses upon their language usages. Having a clear
concept of the book's structure, Dr. Oliver carries
the reader to several conclusions which are not to
be found in any other work. Pinpointing the validity
of this text for the Twenty-first Century is noted
by its users. Bible schools, study groups, churches,
and theological schools are using this book as an
adjunct for Old Testament Biblical studies. The book
has literally circled the earth. ISBN 1-931898-05-7
