Latest Completed Reading: Richard Sibbes' "Bowels Opened"

Richard Sibbes Bowels Opened

I've continued to work on other readings of Christian books or treatises I've found very spiritually beneficial, all of which you can find here.

And we just finished our latest: Richard Sibbes' "Bowels Opened", his exposition on Song of Solomon 4:16-6:3 (I believe "bowels" are like bowels of love, or bowels of mercy).

The Song of Solomon is most often considered to be a revelation of the relationship between Christ and His bride, the Church (including each individual member). To me, it's extraordinarily beautiful, and I believe should be studied thoroughly.

In Sibbes' writing, he takes you through some of the descriptions of Christ from His spouse, and vice-versa, and a time where she slumbers while He knocks, and some of the repercussions and recovery.

Again to me, this book of the Bible is such a glorious picture of the excellencies of Christ, and an amazing discovery of the intimacy between Christ and the Church, and each Christian.

We pray this might be a blessing to you!

May Christ Jesus be magnified and glorified through His word!
