The Song of Songs is a wondrous collection of love lyrics nestled in the heart of the Hebrew Bible—religious poetry par excellence. Its possible meanings range from human love to Divine faith. Renowned scholar and theologian Michael Fishbane brilliantly draws from four layers of commentary to reveal the fascinating spectrum of interpretations and ideas perceived in this extraordinarily beautiful biblical book.
Michael Fishbane has been described as one of the most masterful scholars of our time by England’s Chief Rabbi. He is the Nathan Cummings Distinguished Service Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Chicago and the author and editor of numerous books.
