Publishers Description Ecclesiastes has much to say to any thinking person who seriously questions the meaning and purpose of life in a universe that has little or no place for the God who created it. The writer leaves no stone unturned as he pursues his quest. Philosophy, power, politics, pleasure, and education are all carefully explored. Here is a man who appears to have everything yet discovers that he has nothing. Ecclesiastes is a book for modern man to read and digest resonating with the sense of despair felt by many trapped in a materialistic world where time is rapidly running out yet continually offering glimpses of hope, before unveiling the true meaning of life that can only be found in a living relationship with God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Opening Up Ecclesiastes (Opening up the Bible)?
Very Practical Dec 12, 2007
This book is currently being used by the Men's Bible Study at the church I pastor. What a practical and down-to-earth read! This is not a verse-by-verse technical commentary, but a section-by-section study. This is geared toward the layman, but could easily be incorporated in sermon preparation. The chapters are relatively short, most only being 8-10 pages long, each ending with questions for further study and personal application. I hear regularly from the men involved in this study that they are enjoying and benefitting from this study in Ecclesiastes. They often share how much a blessing Opening Up Ecclesiastes is to them.
