The Queen of Sheba is undoubtedly one of history's most fascinating personalities, the subject of stories both biblical and romantic; the lady who courageously traversed an arid desert for over 1,200 miles to meet King Solomon.
For 3,000 years their names have been linked together, reference was even made to them by Christ himself. Yet, despite her fame, how little is known about her and the reason behind her momentous visit to Jerusalem! Some say she arrived from Egypt on a trade mission and had a romantic affair with Solomon. From such stories Hollywood movies arise! In fact, as this book relates, it was not commerce that caused Sheba to journey such a distance, but rather the irresistible grace of the living God. Her heart ached, not for trading agreements or romance but for truth, and she was prepared to travel far to find it.
With sanctified intelligence then it is possible to unravel the 'hard questions' that Sheba asked Solomon; to follow her train of thought, during that historic meeting between the two.
In turn, as the quest concerned 'the name of the Lord' we can understand what was taking place between the two. The world refers to commerce or romance, but in fact, Solomon was pointing Sheba to the 'name which is above every name', before whom 'every knee should bow'.
