Draw My Heart After You in the Song of Love: Journey Into the Depths of God's Love
Readers will take a journey through the Song of Solomon (Song of Songs), which describes God’s heart and His love. Written as a devotional, author Virginia Helweg uses the poetic metaphors from Solomon’s song to teach how God created man and woman in His image and therefore have the capacity within to know Him intimately, parallel to the same love in a marriage. Helweg explains that the Song is about romantic love, but not as man perceives romance. It is an example of God’s persistence to have a relationship with His creation, and a love poem Solomon framed as a song because of a faith in a God of love, singing, praising, and worshiping.
