The NIV program observation Ecclesiastes/Song of Songs.

This remark units out to strive against truthfully with all of the demanding situations of interpreting those biblical books—the demanding situations of analyzing the texts in themselves, and the demanding situations of analyzing them as intrinsic elements of Christian Scripture. utilizing the normal constitution of the NIVAC sequence, it explores their “original meaning,” the “bridging contexts” that allow their trip to the current, and their “contemporary significance.” throughout the exploration, those books are obvious to be deeply correct in what they must say either to the modern church and the modern culture.
