Shepherd Shaped

Front Cover
Hannibal Books, 2006 - 260 pages
Everyone loves a good love story. Solomon's Song of Songs--a love story told by God Himself--is an often-overlooked message to the modern woman that can impact every area of her life--her relationship with her husband, parents, children, in-laws, friends, and most importantly, with the Shepherd who created her. Author Iva May contends that to ignore the Old Testament book, filled with oriental imagery and metaphors and sometimes considered difficult to understand, is to miss learning and applying marvelous truths about Christian marriage as well as about one's intimate walk with the Lord. The Song's main character--the Shulamite woman--is a biblical Cinderella who can help today's woman answer such questions as "Who am I?", "What does being a woman mean?", and "What can I do to deal with suffering and pain?"Answers to women's tough questions are found in this book.
