The Song of Songs is the tender tale about a monarch and a maiden; a king and his captivating bride. Viewed by some as a rather obscure book of the Bible, with eyes to see, it is truly a book that reveals the passionate, intimate, and jealous love that God has for his people. The Song of Songs is to be savored, meditated upon, and experienced, because intimacy with God can only be discovered individually through life-changing, personal, one-on-one encounters with Him. Blending fiction, commentary, and 30-days of devotions, His Desire Is for Me gives you bite-sized portions of the Song of Songs to feast upon. Unlike other commentaries, author Bob Emery expands it as a daily devotional so that, along with prayer and meditation, you will delight in its spiritual content. This exceptional combination of story, study, and prayer sets the table for you, in your quiet times, to have your own personal encounters with God. His Desire Is for Me reveals the different stages a believer goes through on the road to spiritual maturity, as his or her love for the Lord grows from an initial love, to an increasing love, and finally unfolds into a mature love. This book helps you understand how our Heavenly King woos us, wins us, and draws us to Himself, and allows you to experience what it is like to respond to the Lord’s love. Adding to the uniqueness of this blend of commentary and devotional, Emery has also provided a fictional story portraying the relationship between Solomon and the Shulammite based on what is known about them from the Song of Songs and other Biblical and historical references. In a fresh way, this puts flesh and blood on the spiritual truths and principals contained in the Song. Throughout the 30-day journey you will come to believe, with conviction, that God does love you with an unfailing love, and that His desire is truly for you!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful 5.0 out of 5 stars His Desire September 8, 2011 By Paul Spuler Format:Paperback I was drawn to this book by its title; but even the design, coloring, and the leatherette feel of the cover communicated an attractiveness that made me want to open it. When I was doing research to teach a class on Song of Solomon, I filled a notebook with numerous downloads on the subject; but none of what I found came near the approach of HIS DESIRE IS FOR ME in uniqueness, as it tells a story, but also provides a study of this book with great devotional application. Upon beginning to read it, I was immediately drawn into the book by the story line and thoroughly enjoyed it. I especially appreciated how the author ended each chapter with points to consider and thoughts/prayer. This format really clinched the truths that were shared in each chapter. I highly recommend this book to every sincere seeker who desires a greater intimacy with the Lord Jesus. --Paul Spuler
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful 5.0 out of 5 stars Faithful Folios Review September 5, 2011 By Shawneda Marks Format:Kindle Edition Vertical Reach = 5 You cannot complete a chapter in this book without being inspired, and shown the correlation between what happens in the depiction of the story of Solomon loving the Shulamite and each believer's relationship with God. Ministry Message = 5 God's desire is for you. More than anything else He wants each person on earth to know His love for them and desires our love in return. Craft = 5 When I heard Mr. Emery talk about combining fiction, commentary and devotional together I wasn't sure what to expect. When I finally read His Desire is For Me it was a seamless experience. The story beautifully written and lives of the people fleshed out. The commentary written in an unobtrusive gentle manner that whispered of love and intimacy with God. Each prayer and devotion inviting and scripturally sound. Aesthetics = 5 Warm, soothing and inviting are words that I thought when I first looked at the book. The interior layout is professional and organized. Dollar$ & $ense = 5 I think every believer should pick up or download a copy of this book as available. Especially believers who've experienced hurt and abuse of spiritual authority. It will help you return to your first love and forgive those who hurt you (speaking from experience). It is a great find. I'm so glad I read it. You will be as well. An advanced review copy for this book was provided to Faithful Folios at the 2011 International Christian Retail Show. --Shawneda Marks
5.0 out of 5 stars So Happy To Rediscover God's Desire For Me, February 2, 2012 By Jack Bishop - See all my reviews This review is from: His Desire Is for Me (Paperback) I received this book as a gift from a friend. By the time I finished reading the Prologue and Introduction I realized just how good a friend he is! His Desire Is for Me is stunningly written. Much in the same way Jesus taught, Bob Emery teaches us of God's love for each of us through his beautiful storyline, gentle style and vibrant visual images. I became so enthralled with the story I could smell the combination dust and scented oils when the King's chariot rolled by, feel Jerusalem's sun on my face, and I could also feel my desire to be closer to Him welling up inside my heart. The arrival of the book comes at a turning point time in my life. God knew what I needed which is to know of His love for me, no matter what. Thank you Bob for writing this wonderful, amazing book! I look forward to each day's lesson. It is truly magical to realize that His Desire is for Me! Jack Bishop Louisville, KY --Jack Bishop
