In this installment of the series on the Song of Songs, Barry gives his reasons for interpreting the theme of the Song of Songs as "Intimacy with God" and that it is a continuous love song celebrating the love between Christ and his Church.  He elaborates upon the wonder of the invitation that Christ offers to us individually to feel this love.  Some time is also spent on the more literal interpretation of the book as being about the love between a man and a woman.
