Resumo

VAN DER ZWAN, Pieter. Song of Songs: A celebration of and invitation to participate in the fullness of life. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.3, pp. 1-6. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/VE.V36I3.1451.

The Song of Songs is usually appreciated for its celebration of love in the foreground, erotic or divine, if these are not regarded as different aspects of the same experience. This has perhaps led to the neglect of the celebration of life as pertinent background in a unique way in the Hebrew and even Christian Bible as a whole. In a secular world disillusioned by the perceived emphasis on death in traditional religion and therefore desperately obsessed with life, this biblical poetry may come as a surprising liberation through its critical and creative voice even within the religious canons of two world religions.
