Item description for Living on the Ragged Edge Workbook: Finding Joy in a World Gone Mad by Dr Charles R. Swindoll...
Overview This intimate glimpse into Solomon's ancient journal, Ecclesiastes, reveals that the young king's desperate quest for satisfaction in all the trappings afforded by his fabulous wealth was as futile as trying to "catch the wind."
In the never-ending quest for fulfillment, we sometimes convince ourselves that life would be better if we just had a different career . . . more education . . . a new spouse . . . a fresh start in another location. The solution to life's challenges, we think, is just around the corner, a few steps ahead―always just out of reach.
"Living on the Ragged Edge Workbook" opens the pages of an ancient journal―the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes. In this very personal, unbelievably honest book, King Solomon chronicles his search for satisfaction, experiencing "everything" the world offered. The wisest man who ever lived, he certainly had the intelligence "and" the vast resources to pursue whatever his heart desired―from personal riches to sexual pleasures. Solomon had it all. He did it all with abandon. And he came to the end of his days with the ultimate secret for the "good life."
Do you want to know the secret? Do you want to know how to find joy and peace in this world gone mad? In this bestseller Charles Swindoll delivers his characteristic insights and wisdom in an exploration of the book of Ecclesiastes and brings home to you Solomon's powerful message for "living" at its best.

Excellent Bible study. Jan 9, 2009
This book puts the worlds perspective where it belongs. I don't have to get caught up in what the world thinks is important. There can be joy in a broken world. I used this as a tool to deepen my understanding of Ecclesiastes. Great tool for new Christians.
