Song of Songs: A multi-faith exploration of Divine passion and love

PCNV member Rev. Anneke Oppewal has developed a sermond series that has turned into a book with the above title. Amazon's description of the book is as follows:

The Song of Songs is a biblical gem that is not often read or talked about. Using startlingly explicit imagery and language it is a book about love both human and divine. In five sermons Rev. Anneke Oppewal explores a world where the physical and the spiritual, faith and desire, love and beauty meet. Contributions from the Jewish and Muslim traditions open vistas that connect present day Christian, Jewish and Muslim practice, spirituality and mysticism with a history that goes back thousands of years. Inspired by the Song of Songs, this book is part of a multi-media project offering reflections, contemporary poetry, beautiful illustrations, music and even recipes. Supported by a website at, it provides an opportunity to hear, see, smell and taste what the Song is about. "......for love is stronger than death, passion fiercer than the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a raging flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. Song of Solomon, 8: 6-7
