Preaching and the Song of Songs

Applause to Grenville Kent who tackled the topic of preaching the Song of Songs in church–even on a Sunday morning!  In Reclaiming the Old Testament for Christian Preaching, (IVP 2010), in which Kent is an editor and contributor, he offers at least an outline of a potential message from the Song: “I Dig Your Garden” (cute title for 4:12-5:1). While I may disagree with a few of his spiritualizing applications, Kent is to be commended for “preaching” a book that many pastors leave out of their pulpits and authors ignore in their books concerning preaching the OT.

PS. If you are interested in preaching the OT, this book is worth a read.
