The Song of Solomon offers strikingly candid—and timeless—insights on romance, dating, marriage, and sex. We need it. Because emotions rise and fall with a single glance, touch, kiss, or word. And we are inundated with songs, movies, and advice that contradicts God’s design for love and intimacy.Matt Chandler helps navigate these issues for both singles and marrieds by revealing the process Solomon himself followed: Attraction, Courtship, Marriage … even Arguing. The Mingling of Souls will forever change how you view and approach love.
I grabbed this book because my daughter’s youth pastor recommended it for non-married couples and they (the youth) were going to be working through the book with the kids at a level that was appropriate for them. I have read a lot of marriage books and walk away disappointed most of the time.
But this book made sense to me, even though I am already married. I do highly recommend this book for any couple who is dating or any single person is wants to date and have a God honoring reletionship. This is an excellent guide and resource for building a marriage as God intended.
Yet, even as a married person I gleaned a lot of good information from this book. Particularly the chapter on Fighting Fair. I wish I had read this BEFORE I was married because we have established a way of communicating that probably isn’t really effective. Of course we make changes now but it’s always hard to end one habit and start another.
This is a book I would highly encourage my children to read as they get older and anyone who is single. But like I said, I believe even us old married people can learn a lot from this book.
