Jesus, Lover of My Soul; Fresh Pathways to Spiritual Passion by Julian Hardyman and published by IVP Books.
Do you long for a closer, deeper walk with God? Would you like to know more about what the Bible says about spiritual intimacy?
We say we know about God's love in our heads, but has it really percolated through to our hearts? The Bible employs the metaphor of Christ, the Lover, and believers, his beloved. Yet this rich relationship potential is relatively unexplored in modern popular books, and we are the poorer for it.
Using Song of Songs and other Bible sources, the author explores the dynamics of our relationship. We come to understand more fully what it is for Christ to love us and for us to love him. This portrayal of the living dynamics of a believer's relationship with Christ cannot fail to transform our devotional life profoundly.
