Sacred Marriage: The Wisdom of the Song of Songs
In Sacred Marriage the words of Nicholas Ayo and the paintings of Meinrad Craighead combine in an enchanting exploration of the Song of Songs, surely the most controversial book of the Bible. It has been said that love is a work of art created with imagination. The Song of Songs consists of love poems celebrating courtship, the human body, sexuality, harmony between a man and a woman, and sensuousness. Ayo, who teaches at the University of Notre Dame, presents a multidimensional commentary that is at once physical and spiritual, erotic and mystical, profane and sacred, realistic and romantic, literary and theological.
