About-

Of all the famous books ever written, The Song of Songs has been designated as the finest ever produced or ever to be read on the subject of finding love, developing relationships, and experiencing life. Its title, The Song of Songs, is a superlative, an almost exaggerated expression of praise, which insists that this book is "the best of the best."
Designed to be read over fifty days, As Good as It Gets takes the reader through this greatest of love songs, delighting in its beauty and exploring its passion while discovering its insights into aspects of love and life such as praise, intimacy, affirmation, identity, insecurity, community, friendship, transformation, disruption, resolution, restlessness, rapture, confidence, dignity, disclosure, and freedom.
In the end the reader will discover much more than a manual on relationships or even what it takes to live a passionate and purposeful life. While remaining entirely honest about the realities of life, love, and relationships, The Song retains the remarkable ability to bring us into a life that is filled with joy and grace, beauty, and poetry.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Stephen Clark, in his book As Good as It Gets, communicates a clear, perceptive, and yet practical approach to interpreting the complex book of the Bible, the Song of Songs. Clark artfully takes the reader on a creative, sensitive, and God-centered voyage. He masterfully guides us through the many human emotions represented in the Song of Songs with his thoughtful, insightful, and instructive pen."
--Don Harwood
Member New York Philharmonic Orchestra, retired

"As Good as It Gets doesn't get any better. Stephen Clark's new book based on the Bible's ultimate love story, Song of Songs, is an opera without the tragedy. Who says love and passion are pleasures to feel guilty about, in Stephen Clark's beautiful written and heart-felt rendering, they are pleasures that go to the very core of love: God's love."
--David Dewey
Painter, Professor Emeritus

"It is a rare achievement that can advance scholarship and yet connect with the person in the pew. It is a rarer achievement yet that a homiletical and devotional commentary should serve this purpose. Steven Clark's commentary on the Song of Songs is a unique and stunning accomplishment that will edify the scholar and challenge false conceptions of spirituality. This is simply a sparkling exposition of a mostly unstudied and unread part of the Bible."
--John L. Vance
Lecturer in Religion and Philosophy
State University of New York at New Paltz
