An evening to celebrate the launch of Stefan Reynold’s latest book The Wisdom of Love in the Song of Songs published by Hikari Press. 

The Wisdom of Love in the Song of Songs is the fruit of research and personal meditation over many years. As the poem has no overtly religious context  contains wisdom which could be better known among Christians and non-Christians alike. It speaks to the relation of sexuality and spirituality, and contemporary interest in gender studies. It is the nature of the Song as a bridge builder which has always fascinated me. I did an MA dissertation on Medieval spiritual commentaries on the Song and have studied recent ‘secular love poem’ approaches. What is needed is a book which bridges the two together to give a consistent and full interpretation of a poem, which could be enjoyed as much today as it was appreciated as “the greatest poem” in earlier eras.   

 

Stefan is also author of Living with the Mind of Christ: Mindfulness in Christian Spirituality.  He is an Oblate of WCCM and an Associate of the Irish Cistercians, a regular leader of retreats and holds a Doctorate in Christian Spirituality from London University.
