Song of Solomon Outline

This is by far the best outline I have found for the "Song of Solomon". It is from the Ryrie Study Bible. Although I do not agree with all of Ryrie's commentary, his outline for this book is spot on!

It is different than the breakdown in most NIV bibles, but to me it flows much better. It paints a wonderful picture of a righteous courtship, wedding and marriage that is full of passion, sex and pleasure! Just the way God created it to be!  {photos by Punam Bean}
