Song of Songs, also known as Song of Solomon, has been referred to as a book of erotica in the Bible. While I wouldn’t call it erotica, it does show beautiful imagery of love between man and woman. I came across the idea to read this book with my husband, so we did as our devotional time for a few nights. It didn’t get us hot and bothered, but hey, maybe we were reading the wrong translation. According to Crossway, it takes 17 minutes to read through Song of Songs/Solomon.
Just a reminder, it’s best to let scripture interpret scripture. I like these resources because they help me better understand scripture, but I may not agree with everything they say. As in all things, pray and invite God to help you in your time of reading and studying. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you and use discernment when using resources outside of the Bible itself. “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15 NIV)
