    Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs

    Kerux Commentaries enable pastors and teachers to understand and effectively present the main message in a biblical text.

    Each volume uniquely combines the insights of an experienced Bible exegete (trained in interpretation) and a homiletician (trained in preaching). These two authors work together to explain the essential message for the original listeners or readers, unpack its timeless truth, and then provide a contemporary restatement and communication insights for the key biblical concept. Every book is a resource designed and written with the real needs of the pastor and teacher always in view, providing many ways to creatively express the principal thought in a biblical passage.

    Authors Jordan W. Jones and Christopher Pascarella demonstrate how Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs fit alongside other Old Testament wisdom literature. Ecclesiastes views echo the familiar biblical teaching on the eternality of God and the future judgment being a source of comfort in the face of stark realities acutely familiar to believers today. Song of Songs elevates the place of love and sexual intimacy in marriage relationships and prefiguring the analogy of the church as a spouse devoted to Jesus. Jones and Pascarella guide teachers and preachers to see how the holy disillusion of Ecclesiastes and the overflowing love in Song of Songs interact with other biblical teachings to present a coherent approach to life and love.

    Based on the Big Idea preaching model, Kerux enhances the reader's ability to deliver a message that is biblical, cohesive, and dynamic.
