For my entire life I have always been told that Song of Solomon was an analogy of Christ and the church. A few months back though my unit started going through a video series by Tommy Nelson on the book. He believes that the book is an instruction book on courting and dating. There is no need to allegorize the book. I do say that the series has been great and guys are on a waiting list to borrow the DVDs so they can watch them with their wives, but it got me wondering........ Is SoS allegorized or a poetic description of a couple?
