Reader Reviews

I cannot recall having read a book of fiction that so completely took me in and edified my spirit. I consider this book a great blessing as it stirred my heart and emotions for my heavenly bridegroom. The author's ability to allow the reader, to effortlessly put themselves in the place of Abishag, and actually feel the awe and reverence that she felt for the Lord's anointed and anointing, touched deep chords within me.

I have been reading books for a lot of years and without any question this is the most awe inspiring book to ever be written, With exception of course to the Bible. The author takes his reader on a journey through the times of young king Solomon and his quest for the "perfect" bride. As is stated in the forward of his book, this is a typological portrait of the Bride of Christ and her Bridegroom. We are taken back in history, with a little imagination and great inspiration, to a place where, no doubt, many christians have often wondered, "what happened to inspire Solomon to write the "The Song of Songs""

Regarding the ‘Solomon’s Bride’ series by author Mark Meadows, I have to say only one word:  astonishing!  From the opening paragraphs, where King Solomon’s fall in the woods takes his audience into his most anointed childhood, in the palace, under the headship of his father, King David, to the point when Solomon makes his sudden and timely appearance in the suburban hillside village of Shunem under a the mysterious identity “Jedidiah,” these books will sweep you up into the lovely and inspiring story of Solomon’s Bride.  This is a skillful and creative work, which will bring every Christian into a deeper understanding of the love affair of King Solomon and his Bride Abishag:  a perfect type of Christ and His Bride.

-Jerry Robinson

I'm sorry I took so long to tell you that your book was far more than I expected. I thought, I'll just read the first set (thinking I won't want to read any more), but boy was I wrong you had me hooked right from the start. Your insight was amazing with the historical facts and the likeness of Solomon to Christ and the Shulamite bride to us.

You gripped all my emotions and a story not to be forgotten. 

-Albena, Spokane WA

Solomon's Bride is extremely satisfying on a variety of levels. Romance, historical accuracy, and inspiration... all play a major role in this thoroughly unique novel. Author Mark Meadows possesses an impeccable sense of time and place, and has presented a depiction of King Solomon unlike any rendered before; a man of vast wisdom inspired and blessed by God, yet of flesh and bone, with the same faults and foibles as us all.  
Your sharing of this novel with me was a great blessing, Mark, and opened my Christian eyes on many levels. Thanks so much!

I find it hard to believe that this is not the real thing. Meadows you have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that this is not a copy of the unwritten manuscript of Solomon's life history..
It's such a shame that i had to bump into such an exceptional piece of work by chance.   In many cases i had to repeat a whole chapter afraid that i had missed something head whirling from emotions. Meadows comprehensively covers an uncountable number of subjects in the 200 paged book and at some point i was forced to pick up my pen to put them down on paper lest i forgot. With all the hustling and bustling it only took me 2 days to complete the read.


During this indescribably fascinating “adventure”, while I was reading all five books in the series of “Solomon’s Bride”, it seemed to me, at certain moments, that I was almost reading my “personal diary” – the types and events being so vivid and close to my heart that I was able to completely identify with them.  I compare the experience of reading “Solomon’s Bride” books to looking at a 3-D stereogram image. While patiently following every exquisitely described scene, person, feeling, conversation, I kept “staring through” this wondrously knitted and woven narrative, allowing tears of joy to fill my eyes and then continuing to look at this marvelous love story “between the lines” until… all of a sudden an indescribably beautiful and majestic image of Jesus Christ and His Bride appeared in front of my eyes from the pages.

-Anton, Lithuania

Enchanting. . ."Solomon's Bride" seamlessly melds a romance with an insightful survey of the religious and cultural history of a bygone era. Meadows presents the first installment in a series that imagines the adventures and inner workings of the great King Solomon. Decorated with flowing words and imagery reminiscent of "The Song of Solomon," this novel sends the reader tumbling alongside the main character through the important events that shape the young king's compassionate nature. His surprising course leads him to a woman who not only illuminates the unknown discontent within his kingdom, but offers him a love of legendary status, one that will inspire and instruct for centuries to come.

Down From His Glory

by Mark Meadows

With Introduction by Lonnie Jenkins

Down From His Glory is an enchanting journey into the exciting world of ancient Israel.  This opening book in the Solomon's Bride series sets the stage for a panoramic drama, full of adventure, romance, and intrigue. 

But Solomon's Bride offers much more than simple entertainment.  The story paints a beautiful picture of Christ and the Church  in allegorical form.

Not since Pilgrims' Progress has an allegory of such spiritual insight been offered to the public.

From the Introduction by Lonnie Jenkins

     Reading Solomon’s Bride was for me an extremely unusual adventure, since I seldom take the time to read works of fiction. One of the secretaries in our office has been proofreading for the author, and she suggested I might enjoy the read. I took her up on it and found myself looking forward eagerly to each new addition to the series.
What a creative imagination Mark Meadows has displayed to create Solomon’s Bride! He has taken Bible characters and Bible events and filled in the blanks in a way only inspiration can accomplish...The types and shadows blended into the narrative are so many and so well done my desire was that not one reader would miss them. Thus I asked brother Mark if he could possibly do either an additional book or an appendix on “Just In Case You Missed It,” in which he explains that what went on in this relationship between Solomon, (the Christ-type, as Son of David) and his sweetheart, Bride-to-be and ultimately Queen to the King, and how it applies to you, also.

        This book will bless you.
