The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) is a unique publishing project. Designed for digital, it features the latest in biblical scholarship, looks at application and devotional implications, and is written from a distinctly evangelical perspective. Since it was announced in 2010, five volumes have been released: 1, 2 & 3 John, Exodus, Ezra & Nehemiah, James, and Philemon.
We’re excited to announce the latest release in the series: Song of Songs, by A. Boyd Luter. Luter currently serves as adjunct online professor of New Testament at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He’s been a pastor, and has also taught at Crichton College, LeTourneau University, Talbot School of Theology, Cedarville University, Criswell College, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, Ashland Theological Seminary, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is a coauthor of Ruth and Esther: God behind the Seen, and wrote the notes on Luke, Galatians, and Revelation for the HCSB Study Bible.
In his EEC volume, Luter argues that the Song of Songs can be divided into seven sections, taking a young couple from their initial longings and expressions of affection for each other to their wedding day, and on to the various struggles that threaten to derail their love. For each section, Luter comments on the text and background and provides helpful suggestions on how it might be preached and applied today.
Song of Songs makes up half of the EEC volume on Ecclesiastes & Song of Songs. The Ecclesiastes portion, by Bob McCabe, is forthcoming. If you’ve purchased the EEC, you’ll receive Song of Songs automatically, with no additional purchase required.
