The Song of Solomon was written by King Solomon and is also known as "Song of Songs" or "Canticles." The name of God is not mentioned in this book, nor is it referred to in the New Testament. Many believe it to be a sensual story of Solomon and one of his wives, however, many believe it to be an allegory wherein Solomon, disguised as a shepherd, goes to check on his flock and falls in love with a maiden. He woos her but leaves, promising to return for her. She does not know that he is a king, but waits for his return. When he does return, in royal splendor, she is overjoyed and surprised and she becomes his bride. Christ came first as a shepherd but promises to return one day for His bride (the church) in majestic splendor.
