Bonus Episode: Two Perspectives on the Song of Solomon

A Bonus Episode in two parts: First, a conversation between Michael and Tommy Nelson about the literal, human aspect of Song of Solomon.

Second, a conversation between Michael and Dr. Philip Rykken about the perspective of Christ’s love for the church displayed in the Song of Solomon.
