Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


If we assume that Gill preached one sermon every Sunday, his series of 122 sermons on the Song of Solomon would have lasted over two years. A scholar of biblical languages, Gill believed that deep understanding of Scripture was absolutely essential even for the laypeople of the church. The interpretation of Scripture he taught, however, often made him a scandalous figure, as he endorsed the controversial view of hyper-Calvinism. This collection of sermons goes through the Song of Solomon verse by verse.
