Lamentations & The Song Of Songs

Full Product Description

This latest volume in the Belief series considers two different types of writing and two very timely subjects - violence and sex within Scripture.

Theologian Harvey Cox finds the book of Lamentations to be shockingly current. Drawing on a wide array of sources from poetry, novels, films, paintings, and photography to classical and contemporary theology, Cox offers a contemporary reading of Lamentations that is provocative and sure to stir numerous theological reflections and responses.

The Song of Songs has historically been seen as pointing to Christ’s love for the church and interpreted allegorically. Yet, it is unique in the canon for its use of erotic poetry, celebrating the human body and love in graphic terms. Stephanie Paulsell suggests that the Song still has profound meaning, teaching us to love ‘those depths of the other which are out of our reach’.

Paulsell is Houghton Professor of the Practice of Ministry Studies at Harvard Divinity School while Cox is Hollis Professor Emeritus of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School.

Lamentations & The Song Of Songs by Harvey Cox and Stephanie Paulsell was published by Westminster John Knox in April 2012. The ISBN for Lamentations & The Song Of Songs is 9780664233020.
