There are two books out that deal with the Song of Songs (among other biblical texts) and sex in the Bible. Boston University religion professor, Jennifer Wright Knust is the author of Unprotected Texts: The Bible’s Surprising Contradictions about Sex and Desire. (See a USA Today article here). The second is Michael Coogan’s God and Sex: What the Bible Really Says. (See a Newsweek article on both books here). I hope to get a copy of each in the not too distant future and get to review them. Although, based on the snippets I have read thus far, I doubt I will be “surprised” nor will I really find out “what the Bible says about sex” from these two books.
