Fabry, Chris. The Song. USA: Tyndale House Publishers/ City On A Hill Studio. 2014.
Son of the famous singer, David King, Jedidiah King has big shoes to fill. Though legendary with his songs and performances, other parts of his father’s life were not so authentic. Meeting Rose while writing an intensely charged song, Jed soon finds himself thrown into stardom, unfortunately, including all the negative temptations too. Full of success, romance, faith, infidelity, temptations, grace as well as mercy, The Song explores an emotionally difficult subject.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Originally developed as a movie (by Richard L. Ramsey) and church resource, The Song was then written as a novel by Chris Fabry, an award-winning author, so even more people could experience the Scripture. Based as a modern adaptation of Solomon’s life through Song of Songs and the book of Ecclesiastes, The Song teaches (faith, grace, mercy, forgiveness) while showing the temptations of the world against marriage (adultery, dishonesty, irresponsibility). Though blunt in areas, the novel deals with a challenging issue in an exceptional manner. Complete with discussion questions and a couple’s Bible Study at the end of the book, The Song would work well for small group discussions, a couple’s Bible Study, marriage counseling or ministry. Entertaining yet so full of life and faith lessons. I definitely plan on sharing my thoughts on this book with many others!
