Matthew H. VanLuik’s new book, The Song of Songs - The Greatest Love Song, ($15.49, paperback, 9781498426169; $7.99, e-book, 9781498426176) powerfully evokes the passions of the heart as it explores the intimate bond of love between a man and woman. The book examines the mystery of love in this love song, to help the reader to better understand the love of God for his people. The author provides pastoral guidance to God's youth for understanding the purpose for love and marriage. He also offers encouragement to married couples to face the challenges in their relations and to grow in love for one another. This book helps readers evaluate questions such as: What am I looking for in a marriage partner? How do we as a couple develop our love during courtship? How do we build and maintain a loving relationship in marriage? How do I grow in my love for Jesus Christ as my Saviour?
“I hope readers will better understand the true nature of love as God intended it from the beginning,” states the author. “For those who are seeking a relationship, they will better understand what they should be looking for in a relationship. For those who are married, understanding the true nature of love will give them the confidence to work together in strengthening their marriage bond. And for all believers, this love song will bring them into the realm of God's love, a love so great that he has bought them with the blood of Jesus Christ.”
