The Song of Songs paints in our imaginations a physical place where we may spend time with Christ and enjoy his love. The language of human longing is intended to evoke an experience of divine affection and channels our desires to their true end, our Creator and Redeemer. In this ninety–day devotional Tim Chester has curated a selection of writings from classic authors such as Gregory the Great, Richard Sibbes, Hudson Taylor, Charles Spurgeon, and many others, that will help readers better know the love of Christ.


Tim Chester is a senior faculty member of Crosslands Training and the author of over 40 books. He has a PhD in theology and PgDip in history. He is married to Helen and has two adult daughters.


This book takes us back to the beautiful and tender tradition of the classical, christological interpretation, which makes the modern interpretation seem shallow and boring. Highly recommended! -Craig Carter, Professor of Theology, Tyndale University, Toronto, Ontario

This collection contains some genuine Gospel gold. Let these writings not only push you into the biblical text, but may they push you prayerfully closer to our wonderful bridegroom too!  -Peter Mead, Director, Cor Deo; Author, ‘Lost in Wonder: A Biblical Introduction to God’s Great Marriage’

… Tim delves into the writings of Gregory of Nyssa and Charles Spurgeon, Martin Luther and J. C. Ryle, Ambrose and Matthew Henry, as well as many others, to help us think about Solomon’s most famous Song with the cloud of witnesses who have gone before us. An enriching and fascinating read! -Mitchell L. Chase, Preaching Pastor, Kosmosdale Baptist Church, Louisville, Kentucky and author, ‘Short of Glory’

Tim Chester has compiled a treasure trove of writings on the ‘most biblical’ of all the books in Scripture, so called because of what it is ultimately about: God’s love for his people; Christ’s love for the church; the love of the saved for the savior. -Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
