"Although the Song of Solomon (hereafter, the Song) is generally ignored in the standard Latter-day Saint Church curriculum, it is part of the traditional biblical canon that Latter-day Saints share with Jews and other Christians. It has been the object of much study by many Bible believers during the past two millennia, and an exceptionally large amount of commentary has been produced on this small book during this time. Furthermore, there are a few distinct Latter-day Saint connections to the Song. I therefore think there is value for all students of the Bible in knowing a few basic points about this book, rather than being willfully ignorant of it. Following a brief introduction to the Song, I will answer the four questions posed in the opening paragraphs." [Excerpt from article]
Questions: 1. What is the basis for the Latter-day Saint claim that the Song of Solomon is not "inspired" scripture?
2. Since the Song of Solomon is not inspired scripture, why is it in the Bible?
3. Since the Song of Solomon is not originally inspired scripture, what is it?
4. Since the Song of Solomon is not inspired scripture, why is a passage from the Song of Solomon quoted several times in the Doctrine and Covenants?
