Description

King Solomon had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines who turned his heart from God, and, eventually, tore apart his kingdom. Perhaps that’s why his Song of Solomon is a poem about the pure, beautiful, and lasting love that never endangers and brings life, not death.
      
Bible scholar Herbert Lockyer explores this ancient poem through the lens of the gospel. The result is a beautifying story of the passionate love that the beloved has for his bride and that the bride has for her beloved—a picture of the love that Christ has for His church and that the church has for Him. And in an age when many of us feel betrayed, insecure, and alone, Lockyer’s words bring a timely reminder of the intimate refuge Christ offers us daily. With the help of the Spirit, all of us can learn to love again.  

Dr. Herbert Lockyer (1886–1984) considered becoming an actor when he was first deciding on a career. Tall and well-spoken, he seemed a natural for the theater. But the Lord had something better in mind.

Dr. Herbert Lockyer (1886–1984) considered becoming an actor when he was first deciding on a career. Tall and well-spoken, he seemed a natural for the theater. But the Lord had something better in mind. Instead of the stage, God called Herbert to the pulpit, where, as a pastor, a Bible teacher, and the author of more than fifty books, he touched the hearts and lives of millions of people. Dr. Lockyer held pastorates in Scotland and England for twenty-five years. As pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement, which emphasized the significance of living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This led to an invitation to speak at the Moody Bible Institute’s fiftieth anniversary in 1936. His warm reception at that event led to his ministry in the United States. He received honorary degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London. In 1955, he returned to England, where he lived for many years. He then returned to the United States, where he spent the final years of his life in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his son, the Rev. Herbert Lockyer Jr., a Presbyterian minister who eventually became his editor.
