Monday’s Mission #43

Your mission this week is to read the Song of Solomon with your husband. Find out all you can about the language that was used and what it meant. Read it in several different translations. Then maybe even act it out. “My stag comes bounding through the hills…” Though I have not read it, the book Intimacy Ignited actually takes the Song of Solomon and studies it one portion at a time. I have heard good things about this book. It might be worth picking up from your library or local bookstore. Blessings to you as you look to the Word of God in this way.


  1. You can also listen to a great sermon series by Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle (the reformed one, not the emerging one). The series walks through Song of Solomon one book at a time. I am in the middle of it right now and it is awesome. I am not accustomed (being from the south), to hearing preachers talk about S-E-X. 🙂

    Here is the link to the Peasant Princess series –

  2. I have not listened to all of it, but I did listen to some and I agree that so far it’s really good. I’d like to listen to the rest of the series as well.

  3. I recently read Intimate Issues (21 questions christian woman ask about sex) by Linda Dillow & Lorraine Pintus and one of the most helpful things for me about the book was how they kept coming back (and referreing the readers back) to the Song of Solomon. I had never really read this part of the Bible before but it totally opened my eyes to see God’s view of sex…Song of Solomon is most definitely worth studying, I would also recommend Initmate Issues.

  4. I’ve been listening for about a week now and just started sermon 6 today. It is an awesome explanation of sin and why we need Jesus to have a healthy marriage, though a slight detour off his sex talk.

    I also just found a book by Tommy Nelson about Song of Solomon that I want to take another look at. I remember listening to a conference series he did on the book way back when I was in college. It really informed my view of sex in marriage as healthy, natural, and necessary, not icky or just for the man or babies.

  5. Have had difficulties reading Song of Solomon with a fresh eye as I have read and reread it so many times.

    However, this time, I am reading it from a nympho aspect and even though I am seeing a few different revelations, I am still finding library books on sex more interesting and informative.

    This could be because I am unwilling to chew on the meat of the Word!!

    I know the Lord is talking to me and I will continue in the life I have with Him which means including His Word in my education about my new sexual self.

    Going to order online as the library doesn’t carry either of the works mentioned here.

    Peasant Princess looked cute. Will check it out. I appreciate all this info. Thank you.

  6. My wife and I are going through Intimacy Ignited right now – it is a great study. The Song of Songs is revealed so clearly – and it is eye-opening to learn that God deeply desires us to have meaningful, enjoyable and seriously passionate sex lives with our spouses. There is an 8-week study included in the back of the book that works for just you and your spouse or a small group. BTW – Intimate Issues was written by the same people that wrote Intimacy Ignited. The two women wrote Intimate Issues while both couples collaborated on Intimacy Ignited.

  7. I love SOS! I am always astounded at the words in the original language. It cracks me up to see how blatant everything is. I have done study by Bob and Rose Weiner called the preparation of the bride, which gets into the poetic symbolism and connects it to the other books in the Bible. It is a very meaty and intensive but well worth it.
