In this, the first of five sermons, Des Smith explores “the strangest book in the Bible”. In what appears to be a graphic and intense love poem Des explains how human romantic love points to a bigger love story for the whole world – between God and people. Song of Songs is indeed about one man and one woman, as well as men and women, and way they love each other. But that reality – romantic love and life-long commitment that is reflected in marriage – is a picture God placed in world to point towards the ultimate reality of his love for us. A love shown in the gospel as His Son died on a cross. In this sense Song of Songs is book for everyone because it ultimately points to the love of God for everyone.
