It showed me many good and interesting things. But one of the things that stuck out the most was how Solomon always pleased his wife first and how he was a servent lover toward Tizrah (his wife), and how God loves women so much that he gave us the Song of Solomon to see that we women are uniquely designed and not crazy! There is also a lot of things that wives can learn that will help enhance intimacy with their husbands as well. This is a must read for both husband and wives-not just for women. My husband(who is not a reader)enjoyed this book as well and learned from it.
My daughter is only ten, and I plan to keep this book in my closet for however many years until she is ready for marraige. I will definitely pass this onto her as well as buy it for wedding shower gifts. It is very well written and worth buying!!!
Through various anecdotes throughout the book the reader gets to see other couple's struggles and joys and hopefully learn how to apply them to their own marriage. It is hard hitting and encompassing, and very little is not discussed. My wife and I used this book as a Bible study and found the level of intimacy and joy in our marriage increased with the added knowledge of what God originally intended and wants a man and wife to experience in the safety and security of the bonds of marriage.
We would definitely recommend this book to married couples, but not to pre-married ones. Not that it would be "bad" to read before marriage, but the book can be rather stimulating and some of the topics may not make sense outside of the married mind. We, however, strongly recommend Intended for Pleasure by Wheat and Wheat for engaged couples as well as Intimate Issues by Dillow and Pintus for the engaged or married woman.
This book does several things (and does them very well!). First of all, it's a verse-by-verse walk through the Song of Solomon. The authors go deeply into what the meaning of the words are- explaining the poetry of the Song to us. They also spend time explaining how some words may have double meanings and the cultural references that don't make sense to us. I'm sure we've all read the Song of Solomon before, but there's a lot in that book of the Bible that I never understood.
Secondly, Intimacy Ignited uses the Song of Solomon to show us what God's view of sex really is (book spoiler- he's all for a great sex life in marriage!). I really appreciated this, because I think sex has been a topic of much misunderstanding in churches for a number of years. Books like Intimacy Ignited help us realize why God gave us the incredible blessing of sex, and appreciate it as such. As this book reminds us over and over, sex in marriage doesn't have to be something boring or routine!
Thirdly, this book offers advice on how to shift from being selfish lovers to being servant lovers. It also challenges us to really take on the 16 traits of the servant lover, and offers suggestions on how to do so. Some of the challenges and suggestions directly deal with a couple's sex life, and others are more basic marriage builders.
I really liked how this book is laid out. The chapters are easy to follow, but full of a lot of information and advice.Read more ›
The authors do a great job of illustrating their perspective of the text and relating it to issues faced by husbands and wives today. Much of the insight and perspective shared on sex inside the book are not new. The book does a great job of illustrating the perspective of husbands and wives and how to navigate some of the more difficult issues. Over all Intimacy Ignited: Conversations Couple to Couple: Fire Up Your Sex Life with the Song of Solomon is a good book filled with great perspective and counsel for couples on sexual issues. However I would offer one word of caution... If you are not married, don't read the book.... It really is written for married couples.
